Here’s the scoop on some upcoming exhibits I’m participating in that I hope will interest you:
On and Off the Page
The City Gallery in Charleston is hosting an exhibit of book arts with work by more than 40 artists from across the United States, primarily the Southeast.
You’ll see book structures, illustrations, and prints from both contemporary and historic sources (the latter from the Waring Collection at MUSC)
Opening Reception is Sept 16, 5-7pm.
Show runs Sept 17 – Oct 30. Gallery hours 10-6 Tuesday through Friday, 12-5 Saturday and Sunday.
The City Gallery at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Waterfront Park is located at 34 Prioleau in downtown Charleston.
The Dark Edge
The Charleston Public Library is hosting my exhibit of cut paper works inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s lesser known stories (some creepy, some not) and stories with familiar southern settings.
The exhibit is on view during regular library hours at the Main Branch from October 2 through October 30.
Earth and Fire
Del Ray Artisans in Alexandria VA is hosting a show of fine art pottery and wall art for the month of September and accepted my first experiment with the scroll as a form of 2D art.
This exhibit isn’t local but I get to see my kids any time something’s accepted there, so that makes me specially happy.
Art Series I – “Fluid”
On September 15th, 2016, Collective Coffee in Mount Pleasant will play host to a gallery experience showing several artists’ interpretation of the theme “Fluid.”
The art will be on display from September 15th until October 27th. I’m not in this one but it is a great idea and should be an interesting exhibit.
I’m at that uncomfortable stage of experimentation in a new project when I have multiple versions of drawings and I’m playing around with different media and color combinations.
The image below shows some of my emerging characters. Due to the presidential election hoopla this fall, these became politicians in bipartisan agreement, though this has nothing to do with the story I’m fabricating. They have put aside their blow torch and shears and decided to get along. Maybe the birds are constituents, or lobbyists. I guess the alligators have agreed temporarily not to eat the hare.
