A few cool things that have been percolating this year:
During the time that Collected Stories was up at my gallery in Boston, there was a performance event that featured poetry and dance against the backdrop of the show (my paintings and photographs by Kristina McComb). We were out of town, so I wasn’t able to attend the sold-out show, but it was really cool to see photographs and a video of the dancers in the space with the artwork. I came across this interesting review in an online publication called Aesthetics Research Lab. To read it, click here
My work was juried into the Mass Art auction again this year. It’s a wonderful show that raises money for art scholarships and I always love going to see how they manage to hang literally hundreds of artworks on the walls. It’s truly amazing to see how many artists donate work for this cause. To see what’s for sale or to buy tickets to the auction, click here
I’ll also be a featured artist at a preview event at the Mass Art organized by the Massachusetts State Committee of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in partnership with the Harvard Business School Association of Boston. The gallery director at AOG, Allyson Boli, will be speaking at the event and then a few of us artists from the gallery will about our work and process . For more details, click here
I found this photo on the Bakalar and Paine galleries IG promoting the show: My painting Harlem birds is the striped one on the top row, to the left of the round striped one by Jeffrey Heyne..
