“Control”, an exhibition featuring myself and Carolyn Marsden, and curated by Dr. Maruta Z. Vitols opened this past Sunday at the Brickbottom Gallery in Somerville, MA. We had a great turnout at the opening reception, and I got the opportunity to talk to a number of people about my work. You can see more images of the exhibition and the opening reception here.
In other news, you may have noticed that I’ve been on a major roll with my “Ask the Art Professor” articles that I’ve been posting over the past few days. I’m really excited right now about this advice column for visual artists, so I want to strike while the iron is hot. I’m posting a lot or articles right now because I want to build an archive of questions so that the column is more established. It seems to me that there is a real need for something like this out there. I’ve been talking to many of my students about this, and one student commented that art students are “very insecure and hungry for information”. I hope that I’m able to fill the void somehow with this column.
The flip side of my excitement about the column is that I’m having to put my sculpture faces on the back burner. My schedule lately has been more complicated than usual and I’m not able to get into the studio at all this week. Working on these articles is something that I can do anytime, anywhere, so they’re a good way to satiate myself creatively until I can get back into the studio.
