Submitted three pieces today for Side Street Studio Arts' "Off the Wall" exhibition for later this summer. I offered to do a site-specific Outgrowth installation. I'd love to show that. The fun part would be working with a random space they allot to me. If accepted, it would be Outgrowth 3.
"OFF THE WALL is for non-traditional and alternative 3D works that utilize conventional and non-conventional installation procedures. Architectural, 3D printed, textiles, kinetic works, clay, ironwork... ... any artwork in the Third Dimension may be submitted.
This exhibit will be juried.
This exhibit is open to the public August 6 - 29, with an Opening Reception Friday, August 6 from 6-9pm. Submissions must be received by Sunday, July 25th @ midnight. No late submissions will be accepted.
Accepted artists will be notified via email by Wednesday the 28th of July.
Please complete the submission form below. Submission images must be sent through this application.
Submissions will be limited to 3 works or less, including sets."
Goldilocks Panopticon 1, 2021, is a woven glass and reflective bead tile mosaic on a full dome security mirror with optional chain for suspending it from a ceiling or beam. It is part of the Panoption series. I am working on a 36" GP2.
Below are some WIP shots:
There are two more Goldilocks spinoffs. One is a vase still in progress and this little study was given as a birthday gift.
I applied to Harper College's Small Works show. I didn't get in the last time I tried 3 or 4 years ago. We'll see. Galleries only have so many pedestals to go around. Oh, I forgot. This is the place that notifies the artists by posting accepted works on a web page instead of an email notification. Right.
