Field Work is an indoor exhibition, hosted in MICA’s Pinkard Gallery, that will include artworks demonstrating an influence from the earth sciences and mathematics. In addition, as seemingly unpredictable natural phenomenon often arrange themselves in patterns– bees build a honeycomb, minerals form crystalline structures, pine trees produce cones – many of the works included in this exhibition also have a structural form or are made through a methodical process. Curator of this exhibition is Kim Domanski. Continue Reading →

A platform for innovation and originality, the Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition invites audiences to engage with captivating projects from some of today’s leading artists, both established and emerging. From individual narratives to global concerns, the artworks comment on contemporary culture and explore themes such as globalisation, perceptions of space and alienation in the digital age.
As the boundaries between the public and the private begin to merge into blurred depictions of reality, contemporary art is the mechanism that enables us to respond to a renewed understanding of living. The 2017 presentation features the work of 16 shortlisted artists who hail from diverse locations including Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Japan, the USA and the UK.
Went over to Denton Texas today to install 3 of my etudes for this years 2017 Digital Fabrication Symposium at the University of North Texas.The Digital fabrication is the creation of physical objects from digital files utilizing a variety of approaches including 3D printing, lasercutting, and CNC machining. It is being increasingly integrated into a wide range of disciplines and at all levels of education from grade school to higher education. This year’s Digital Fabrication Symposium will be hosted at UNT’s Willis Library and The Factory and will include a series of workshops, panels, and presentations, including a keynote presentation by Laura Splan, http://www.laurasplan.com/ In conjunction with the Symposium, there will be a curated exhibition focused on digital fabrication in UNT’s Environmental Sciences Building, with a reception the evening of the Symposium.

Gallery 263 is pleased to present Iteration, a Juried Exhibition featuring the work of 37 artists from across the nation. With an array of media, including; ink, paint, graphite, fiber, encaustic, drypoint, video, photography, and much more, these artists embark on obsessive and meditative journeys.
Repetition in any endeavor builds skill, supports memory, and requires patience. The artists featured in Iteration relish in this method of practice. You’ll find concentrated, and playful, interpretations of the theme; from lyrical planes brimming with dazzling technique, to disrupted or paused patterns that take respite in negative space. Some artists seek order in the organic – fruit, hair, mushrooms, wood – and produce uncanny results. Other work depicts growth, while remarking on dilution or evolution as a result of repetition. Further artists consider automation, nodding to contemporary modes of information consumption by pixelating, layering, framing, and surveilling their subjects. Gesture is ample in this exhibition, whether through restrained acts of endurance, such as knotting, pinning, penciling, or dotting thousands of times, or in rhythmic, expressive strokes. Iteration examines compositions which are metronomic, yet gently capricious
The Louisiana Biennial is the School of Design’s fourth national juried exhibition. This is a multi-media show for two and three-dimensional works, as well as video and installation works exploring any theme. Through a nationally advertised call for entries The School of Design received over 175 artist submissions and a total of over 800 artworks from across the United States. The overwhelming response reflects a continued commitment and passion for the arts in our communities. We hope that the exhibition not only highlights regional artists, but also exposes all of us to contemporary works created around the country. Continue Reading →
Billboard Creative gets a write up in Creators Project. Check out some of the articles along with some of the other great artist.
Los Angeles commuters are getting an on-the-house arts education for the month of December. The Billboard Creative (TBC) filled the city’s ubiquitous roadside advertisements together with the help of nearly 50 artists.
Now, instead of absorbing the messaging of budget beer brands and insurance companies, LA car owners can appreciate art history in the making with the works of artists such as Paul McCarthy and Alex Prager. Both locals to the city, McCarthy and Prager use their elevated works to reflect LA’s cultural milieu back to its inhabitants. McCarthy’s contribution is a comical caricature of women in the Wild West, an allusion to the industry that drives the city. Prager takes a more realistic though voyeuristic look at the cultural underbelly of LA with a fitting scene of the morning commute (above). Continue Reading →

Though I mostly do exhibitions, from time to time I take on the role of curator and or co-curator. During this past October, I was fortunate to get the chance to be lead curator with the International Digital Media Arts Association for their IDEAS Exhibition in 2016. It was great event, 32 amazing artists showing in the Laird Norton Building on Winona State University’s campus in Winona, Minnesota. Two other co-curators EJ Herczyk and Jinsil Hwaryoung Seo helped in the curation of the show. There were 8 judges including Christian Paul and Dena Grigar. Thank you to everyone including Davin Heckman, Jeff Ritchie, and Winona State who helped to make this happen.
