My Solo Show at The Bing
|Material World, 2011, tacks boxes, book parts, printed corrugated, rubber, |
patinated aluminum and copper, record album parts, tacks and encaustic on panel.
This image will be on the postcard for the show.
I am getting ready for a very large solo show that starts February 3rd and runs to the beginning of April. It will be called GEOMETRIC BRICOLAGE: Found Materials Transformed. Believe it or not, there are more than 100 linear feet of lovely white walls for me to hang on at The Bing Arts Center in Springfield, Mass.

The Bing is a 1950s neighborhood theater that has been revived and reinvented as a non-profit "multi-use hub for community cultural activity." The prime mover of this endeavor, Brian Hale, had a vision for the Bing that is becoming reality through dedication, hard work and a terrific blend of alternative arts programming. I am pleased to have the opportunity to exhibit in this great space. I'll be posting much more about this later complete with images. Right now I'm making two bricolage works in my largest size ever - 4' x 6', each made as a diptych. The plan is that these will hang in the lobby entrance at The Bing.
