Sealing Place: Impressions of Rome OPENS

My latest solo exhibition, Sealing Place: Impressions of Rome opens today at George Mason University’s Fenwick Gallery, located at Fenwick Library across from the circulation desk. I am so pleased to have this collection of objects, catalog and maps on display in a center for research and scholarship. Near the installation is a shelf with numerous books that were referenced in the planning and creation of this project. I have many people to thank for supporting this research and look forward to giving an artist talk about the project in early June. Date for talk forthcoming.

Old Enough to Know Better Exhibition

Two looped pieces from my summer residency at the Craft Alliance were juried into a show organized by the Women’s Caucus for Art in Philadelphia. See the image of the two together below, followed by the display I designed as a wall mounted box, which is lined with linen fabric. The to works sit on custom-made metal mounts. I hope to see the exhibition when I am in town for Thanksgiving in a few weeks.

Urban Fragments #1 & 2 STL are constructed of brick fragments that were recovered in a parking lot in St. Louis. St. Louis has a history with a thriving brick industry. Evidence of the scale of the brick industry there is visible on just about every block. Today the scale of new brick fabrication is nothing like it once was in the city. However, a new industry is thriving in its place. New found appreciation for and heightened value of brick, illegally reclaimed from abandoned homes and buildings around town, is a growing problem. Brick fragments litter the city and are as common as grass growing between sidewalk pavers. Reclaiming broken, unrelated pieces and binding them together forms new relationships and implies new purposes, addressing a past and present where the value of a common brick can redefine a city.
