I have been a slacker in the media updates on this page, Instagram and Facebook I update more often so if you want more consistency in that department tis better to fallow me there but I digress…
Over the summer I was in two group shows the Fitchburg Art Museum’s 84th Regional Exhibition with Tea 4 Two wining the Sculpture Award and the Davis Art Gallery Unconventional : exploring unusual materials and process in Worcester MA. Also to get ahead of it I will be group show in November at the Sprinkler Factory in Worcester MA (more details coming soon). There are still select works available for purchase TheStore@decordova in Lincoln MA please contact them for more information and I will be replenishing stock there soon.
On the creative front…
I am trying to push myself creatively by trying new materials and exploring new mediums, I’ve been learning Stained Glass over the last six months which I enjoy and see a great deal of potential in taking my work into a new direction. That being said my work is getting larger and more complex … not a good thing, not a bad thing, its the work taking it’s natural course by evolving.

This is just a sample of some of the work that will be at the market.
I haven’t done an Offering in sometime. But fall has inspired me, the season signifying change and things coming to an end. A lot has happened this past year ; the death of loved ones, I moved , my sister moved, I walked away from a job that I had been in for seven years and a line of work I had been in for fifteen, unsure were to go artistically or to continue at all frankly. I am still undecided on that last note. So on to this mini offering, this is a slight departure as that four roses have dropped in the same area ( I the artist so can change anything I damn well please), the materials for the most part have stayed the same with the addition of a taxidermy eyes (if you would like more details about the project as a whole please go to the page “The Offering Project” on this blog for more information) were harvested* from a sculpture that was removed from the park to be recycle (It was falling apart from being exposed the elements and it was becoming a hazard). So I felt it was appropriate to give some of them back to the park. I decided to mark the places of my favorite sculptures (whether they are still there or not) at deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum in Lincoln MA.
* I got the okay to harvest the eyes, I don’t just go willy-nilly to sculpture parks taking apart works of art without clearing if first.

A special thank you Juror Francine Weiss, Senior Curator at the Newport Art Museum and to Nick Capasso, director of the Fitchburg Art Museum, and congratulations to all the winners and exhibiting artists for making 83rd Regional show the best yet.
