Text and interactive QR codes provide virtual links to related historical information. The exhibit is open from 8/14/17, 9am through 10/2/17, 11 am.

Visiting Hours:
Monday through Thursday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm; Fridays – 9:00 am to noon.

Earth Art

An active exploration with earth, water, and organic elements will take place at the MMAS Art & Music Festival on Sunday, September 18th from 10 AM to 4 PM at the NORTH COMMON in Mansfield, MA.

Simple, typically overlooked ingredients will be used to engage each participant’s curiosity towards local geography, imagined form, or a material’s character. Earth Art is the name of a 20th century American art movement that emphasized impermanence in relation to an outdoor environmental site. This is an all ages event facilitated by me in conjunction with the MMAS organization. The activity will occur rain or shine. Lack of experience is encouraged. Dress comfortably for fun in the dirt.

The Book of Dreams

IMG_0057_BOD page 5

On exhibit in Dream Weavers, December 6, 2015 – January 16, 2016, Brickbottom Gallery, Somerville, MA

This delightful construction was abandoned carelessly in a heap of unwanted items inside a studio building. Fortunately, I hang out with two artists who are wannabe scarabs. One of them sounded the alarm and the other pulled it from the rest of the dung. The latter character felt the star book belonged with me. I am proud to call this individual my “personal shopper”.

Upon receiving the wayward item, the pages felt hungry. I adopted it and fed it. Graphite drawings from imagination and personal notes were added during a particular sketchbook practice. The Book of Dreams was born.

Thanks to Andrea Silver & Karen Tribul for making the book. Thanks to the Universe and Andrea Zimon for connecting the lost wishing palette to this dreamer.

The Art of Yes

specimen

At the Mansfield Music & Arts Society’s Morini Gallery, 377 N. Main Street, Mansfield, MA. On display from September 3, 2015 through October 16, 2015. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 to 4pm, or by appointment with MMAS. The gallery is open during the Mansfield Mural Dedication festival on 9/19/15 and also (1) hour before all scheduled theater performances.

This show unveils the artistic process, inviting visitors to both witness and touch the work. An activity area is presented to encourage self-expression upon interaction with the exhibit. Consider that creativity exists as an essential organ in everyone. Each inspired effort that falls within the spectrum of building a sandcastle to painting the ceiling of a great cathedral matters. Creative endeavors mirror human responses to internal imaginative forces and external life experiences. Art is simply the tangible by-product of these influences.
