New post coming soon! In the meantime, there are several current and upcoming events on the Events Calendar. If you’re in NYC you’re invited to this Friday’s opening reception for a group exhibition celebrating twelve years of regular weekly life drawing sessions at Randall Harris’ Figureworks in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I’ve been attending those sessions regularly almost since the beginning, and two of my drawings are on exhibit, one from 2002 and one from this year. The opening is Friday June 8 from 6-9 pm, and the work will be on view in the gallery until July 29. Other artists in the show include Raina Bajpai, Susan Berkowitz, Rodney Dickson, Howard Eisman, Susan Hamburger, Randall Harris, Elliot Lloyd, Karen Miles, Doug Safranek, K. Saito, and Samantha Smith, all my fellow regulars and semi-regulars from the Figureworks sessions – a really interesting and diverse community of artists!
A week later, on Saturday, July 16th, action painter Rie Nishimura is having an opening of her work at CRS, 123 Fourth Avenue in Manhattan. She’s doing a performance in collaboration with Chaz Ganster, and they’ve enlisted me to do body painting and light effects for it. The opening will be from 7:30-9:00 and the performance around 8 pm.
One of my drawings is also included in Naked, a group show at the Fuller Lodge Art Center in Los Alamos, New Mexico. And I’ll be teaching several workshops at this year’s Sirius Rising festival at the Brushwood Folklore Center in Sherman, New York, next month.
