New Work and Exhibits

It seems that my work is not collecting dust in the studio these days! After the Abington Art Center Solo Series, the three pieces that were not sold went to Art Guild of New Jersey in Rahway and now right into an exhibit in Philadelphia. Here's a write up from the Preemptive Strike Show in Rahway -

There was also a review about the Sculpture Show at the New Hope Arts Center. I had a piece, The Take-Away, in this signature exhibit. Click Here for that.

My newest show - Art In City Hall’s summer exhibition is Recent Graduates, an exhibit of early works by promising artists from the Philadelphia region.  Recognizing the Philadelphia region for its large number of quality art programs, Recent Graduates aims to highlight the next crop of emerging artists soon to impact Philadelphia’s vibrant visual arts scene. The artists selected have graduated from a Philadelphia area art institution within the past three years or artists who will graduate by June of this year. The Gallery is located on the first floor of City Hall's northeast corner.

Exhibition dates: June 10 – August 2, 2013, Reception: June 13, 5-7 pm.

The exhibit is in partnership with the City Hall Exhibitions Advisory Committee.  The artwork was selected by three members of the committee:
·         Amie Potsic, the current Chair of the committee and the Executive Director of the Maine Line Arts Center
·         Leslie Kaufman, the Executive Director for Philadelphia Sculptors  
·         Ona Kalstein, a member of the Da Vinci Art Alliance.

I am also really excited about showing again at Gallery U. I will have a work for the month of June! The opening reception is June 7! Hope to see you there!

When I am not obsessing about my Kickstarter, I am in the studio. Here is a preview of new piece that was recently commissioned.

Although I still apply to a few juried shows, most of my energies have been placed on looking for exhibit opportunities that require applications and writing letters of interest to gallery venues. I hope to share those with you soon. In the meantime, back to work...
