My sculptures made it onto the cover of the Greenville Journal this week, in preparation for Open Studios Weekend, Nov. 9-11. Read about me and four others of the 173 participating artists at GreenvilleJournal.com. My article is located here.

This year for Metropolitan Art Council's annual Flat Out Under Pressure contest, I completed a 20"x24" still life. The awards reception is tonight at Metropolitan Art Council from 7-10pm.
I will be teaching a 6-week collage class this June & July at Greenville Center for Creative Arts (GCCA). [Re]Constructing the Printed Image explores compositional design and aesthetics using found, printed imagery in paper collage i.e., we cut up old picture books!
Students of [Re]Constructing the Printed Image will be provided with precision cutting blades, rubber cement, cork-backed rulers, and paper collaging materials. We will not be using scissors! We will emphasize how developing good craftsmanship in cutting can influence all stages of the collage process. On the other hand, tearing techniques will also be explored, as well as a combination of cut and torn edge qualities. Students are asked to provide their own self-healing cutting mat of any size and a 9"x12" or larger paper pad (140lb. paper, 24 sheet) to be used as the base paper for our collage work.
The beginning sessions of the class will focus on building balanced and dynamic compositions using Gestalt principles of design & black & white imagery, where students will analyze subtle color temperature changes within a monochromatic scheme. Later sessions will develop a broader use of color. Conceptually, we will analyze how subject matter is effected by deconstructing a single image or by reconstructing one from different sources, and how this process relates to artistic practices in other mediums.

Hope to see you this Friday at the reception for my exhibition, Fracture, at @thebascom. This reception coincides with that of the @wcumfa exhibition, Local Made, & with Collective Memory, a collaborative show between resident artists, @grantbenoit & Vicki Provost.
Fracture is a site-specific installation of work I made on site in the Loft Gallery as the Bascom's 2017-18 Winter resident. .
