March update....

It's been a busy few months, so here's an overview of what I've been up to:

The Luck of the Draw show/event at The Navy Yard on Valentines weekend was apparently a big hit - I thought there was a lot of good work, especially in the 10 Miles Square photo room.
Here are 3 of my 6 pieces, installed in The Pink Line Project's space. I don't think that I made great use of the space, but the show did give me a chance to look at my spheres in a different context, which was very helpful.


Here's another photo of the spheres, surrounding my friend's cat. We were at his house to donate a piece for the ArtDC.org silent Auction, to support his new gallery space in Hyattsville MD. I will, in fact, be part of a 2 person show there in April - more details to come.
Leon's leg can be seen in the upper right hand corner.







The reception on February 16th for the Target Gallery's BookEnds show at the Torpedo Factory was well attended, and on their web page you can see photos of me, Leon, and my friend Kerry looking at the work. There was also a video taken of the juror and artists talking about the work, but it doesn't seem to be online yet.





I visited The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History with friends, and spent a lot of time looking at their fabulous bird skeletons.













If you have any interest in skeletons in general, the Smithsonian has an incredible collection of POSED bones - sadly, much better than what they've got at the NY Museum of Natural History (much as I love it).

I also had a really good critique with Matt Best and Jill Romanoke, both resident artists at the Arlington Arts Center. They encouraged me to explore more of my ideas for the coffee filters, so here's a close up of filters with the valleys pushed in to make mountains. More of this to come, as I work on the upcoming show....





And here is a photo of spilled coffee grounds, in my kitchen.
