I am pleased to announce that in March 2014 I will mount my debut solo museum exhibition. Massillon Museum in Massillon, Ohio will be hosting INTERSECTION, a show focused around my southern photography. This exhibition is a game changer in my career as an artist. But putting on a museum quality exhibition is an expensive undertaking and I need all the help I can get to successfully pull it off. This is a big step as an artist and I’m reaching out to art fans and supporters, friends and family, and fellow creatives to help make it all possible.
August was a busy month for me (hell, it’s been a busy year with no signs of things letting up any time soon). I thought I would round up a little update here with a sampling of my going-ons this past month.
I showed work from my muse series at a new gallery in Putnam, CT. I was very happy to be part of The Empty Spaces Project’s debut exhibition, curated by Paul Tousaint. It’s an excellent gallery space with beautiful light. The town of Putnam is delightful and artsy (and boasts northeastern Connecticut’s only sushi bar).
I don’t know how I let this happen but somehow in the hustle and bustle of it all, I never even mentioned here that I had several works in Derek Nicoletto‘s show Just Panic And Get It Over With at 287 Spring gallery in NYC. It was a quick, one-weekend popup show from 12 July to 14 Mar. I was very happy to be part of this amazing group of artists. I showed six works from my muse series. No’s 7-12 marked the New York debut of this ongoing body of work.
One of the highlights of the opening was the chance to meet some of the members of the über-cool synth punk band ATTACK.WAV. Tree Wave wrote up a great piece on the show over at Plus Heart Star and used a few of my photos of the opening. Tree Wave called my work “rad” and “next-level pop-art-ish.” How cool is that?
Other artists in the show included Christopher Stout, Rob Ordonez, and Paul J. Toussaint. Be sure to check out their sites as they are doing very interesting work. But there was so much talent present. Take a peek at the Just Panic Facebook page to see all the artists and their work. Many of the works are still for sale. As Derek said… want to support the arts? Support an artist!
Thank you to all who came out. And, of course, thank you to Derek Nicoletto for making it all happen.
