Networks RI

I'm spring cleaning around here! Richard Goulis, longtime AS220 denizen,  performance- and- other- forms art guy, and gallery director back when I had a studio at AS220, is coming Wednesday to film me in my studio here in Middlebridge. I'm also psyched for the arrival this week of a huge oak table that Alan Bradbury is helping me salvage- it was a throw-away with a broken leg from Hope High School, and was covered in PINK LATEX.  Restored to its former semi-glory after a date with the stripper, it's going into my studio shed sometime this week. It's going to really help me make those large stone rubbings I have been interested in lately.

I've been so fortunate to have been selected to be one of the Networks RI artists for 2011.  The program was started by Dr. Joseph Chazan, and pioneered at AS220. Each Rhode Island artist selected has a video and a portrait made, and is invited to participate in a range of shows around the state, most especially a Museum show. Last year the artists had a phenomenal show at the Newport Art Museum.  Here's a link for that show-  and info from Malcolm Grear's blog on the topic:

Wish me luck with the mess! I will have it all sorted out by Wednesday AM....I hope!

Internet for Artists

Greetings everyone! After attending a Creative Capital seminar at RISD, Internet for Artists, I decided to start a blog. I'm hoping this will be a fun and easy way to stay in touch with my students, friends and other artists and a place to post my work in sculpture. I'm looking forward to posting more soon. Hope you'll be able to stop by!

Meanwhile head over to my regular web site, where you'll find some work, some classes and so on.

Thanks for reading!
