After a winter of studio-hibernation, Spring brings the artist back out into the world with a frenzy of activity ... (relatively speaking).
Opening March 16th at The Compound Gallery, Oakland, the show Outside the Box II is a group show of work by artists who contribute to the Art in a Box art subscription project. The artists will be showing their "full-size" work including some 3D pieces of mine. Details about the show here.
As a sideline to that show, Compound is launching a special edition of hand-glazed plates available to Art in a Box subscribers. My contributions are pictured here >>> and more information can be found here.
Still at The Compound, I'm continuing to make work for my solo show coming up in June, opening reception Sat June 15th. I'm excited to be planning a show in such a great space and the new pieces intend to make good use of it. There should be a few surprises ....!
Meanwhile, I'm a finalist on a couple of public art commissions and am really enjoying the process of developing concepts and visuals for those designs. The public art process can be quite a process, but it makes a great contrast to working in the studio and at this point the two things are feeding each other nicely with ideas and images.
Finally, I've been installing some commissioned art into paving at Coddingtown in Santa Rosa in various phases since 2008, and we're currently planning the final piece of that work to be done sometime this summer.
