Getting ready for the “Art of Darkness” 2018 Show

This October, I was proud to have three of my artworks selected by juror Bob Eggleton for exhibition in the “Art of Darkness” show at the Heartspot Gallery. Two of these pieces are masks, and a third will be a surprise that I am waiting to share on the web after the opening!

The Opening reception will be on Thursday, October 25, from 6:00PM – 9:00PM

The address is:

Heartspot Gallery
1970 Pawtucket Ave. East Providence,

31st Annual RI Open Juried Exhibit at the Warwick Center for the Arts

I was very pleased to learn recently that a piece I had submitted to the WCOA Annual Open Juried Exhibit was accepted into the show.

The piece I have in this show is “Tyrant” a mask made from found object assemblage.

The “RI Open Juried Exhibit” reception will be held on Thursday, October 11th from 6:00 – 7:30pm.  Two Excellence awards and four Honorable mentions will be awarded at the reception at the Warwick Center for the Arts

Congratulations to a friend!

Recently, I mentioned that I had contributed one of my figures to the South County Art Association for the Great Art Heist. Well, just the other day I learned that my friend Jen Ferry was the lucky artist who was able to score this figure.

She sent me this quick shot from the evening of the event:

Congratulations, Jen!!

I am very glad to see that my character will have a great new home!

Moving on

It is inevitable that when one pursues a a creative endeavor that there will be some projects that remain unresolved, that don’t quite pan out, or simply represent a sort of “road not taken”.

In my case, I found that fifteen years ago (has it really been that long?) the world-building component of my figure creation had inspired me to begin work on a series of large vehicles.

Now, as I change gears and focus more on projects like my large masks, I find myself realizing that these projects never really found their feet. And that’s fine. They represent a branch of my decision tree that is now time to prune.

The nice thing is that many of the parts and pieces from these can be re-purposed for other projects, In the meantime, I have documented these vehicles for posterity before I disassemble them.
