New Standing Figures

I have made two new pieces, each about 24 inches tall. They both are holding things in their hands, things that move when the piece is jiggled.

I've made several pieces previously that used the motif  of a puppeteer holding a marionette or puppet.-- at left is a piece that was part of my Rolling Boil series, and at right is a piece built in a small box, currently at Maison Kasini in Montreal.

The piece I just finished (below) is similar. It's called Puppet Master, and is on display at Studio Place Arts (Spa) in the Members Show, cash and carry.

A companion piece, Falconer, also at SPA, holds two insects, one in each hand. They vibrate with the slightest movement:

ARA Opening

Here are the pieces from the previous post installed at the Vermont College of Fine Arts Gallery, photographed during the opening reception.

And a detail from the painting behind the 3D piece:

Annual ARA Exhibit

The Art Resource Association (ARA) Annual Exhibit is being mounted at College Hall Gallery of the Vermont College of Fine Arts in Montpelier. The Opening Reception is Thursday, November 8, 5-7 PM, and the show runs through December 9. Gallery hours are Friday through Sunday, noon to 4 PM.

I'll be minding the gallery on Sunday, November 18, noon-4, if you want to come by and visit.

I re-configured a piece, adding some figures in the tray where previously there were shells.

I'm also showing a painting from 1999 called Ripples. It seemed to go with the 3D piece.
