I’ve done lots of fun art things in the last little while. In the middle of October I was part of a jury to select work for VSA’s upcoming Engage exhibit. I love looking at art, especially art by self-taught artists. And in that vein, I am delighted to be doing workshops every other week for G.R.A.C.E. at nursing homes in St. Johnsbury and Greensboro since June.
I’ve also been picked up by two new galleries – the Gander Gallery in Manchester Center and Stowe Craft Gallery (where I delivered the last of my wall pieces from the exhibit in Nagoya this week).
The opening for the Members Show at Studio Place Arts on November 19 was great. SPA has sold four of my sculptures already!
I’ve also got two pieces made with wine tops (one, Black Angel, shown here) in the ARA show at the T.W. Wood Gallery through December 18. I’ll be gallery sitting there from 12-4 PM on Saturday, December 10, so feel free to come by and visit.
A new activity for me (but not something I'm putting on the regular schedule): printmaking! I was asked to make two prints for the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts/Burlington City Arts 30/30 Print Project and fundraiser, and I worked for two sessions with the wonderful Jennifer Koch (shown below) to print some big plexi buttons I had made for another project.
And finally, I did a workshop with visual arts students in the Academy of Visual and Performing arts at Essex High School on November 17. Students made work related to my Rolling Boil pieces, and they were very cool.
From January 23 to February 17 my art group, 2nd Tuesday, will be having an exhibit at Castleton State College, . I’ll be showing a lot of the big 3-D work I had at Flynndog last year, in case you missed that show.
