I started teaching this year at University of Hartford’s Hartford Art School. I’m teaching Problem Solving to seniors in the Design program. Well, wouldn’t you know they have a Faculty Exhibition the second week I was there. I’ve got a wall of diptychs and one of the larger pieces under a beautiful skylight system. It’s great to be showing with truly talented people. Follow the gallery here.
Today, I took down the show at Theaterworks Gallery and got the pleasure of delivering prints to the “Photo Booth” collaborators I worked with at the opening. Thanks again to Freddie + Taneisha for making this such a pleasant experience. And thanks to the patrons of the arts in the city of Hartford (and surrounding towns) who come out to see and invest in the arts. Hear are some images from the event:
On May 24th, I’ll be showing work at Theaterworks Gallery in association with the opening performance of Tanya Saracho’s “Fade”. As I’ve been focused on other projects, this is the first exhibition of my work in a few years and I think it’s also first solo show. I spent the day on a ladder installing the pieces with a staple gun and many, many rolls of masking tape and white gaffers tape. The title wall will be installed tomorrow: “This Time is Kinda Like the Last Time.” You can see thoughts on this title on the Monologue page of this site.
A few years ago, as part of my exhibit at the 8×8 show in Simsbury, I had set up a “Photo Booth” in the closet. I captured several dozen portraits that night. I’ll be doing the same at the opening tomorrow. The difference is this: we’ll host a deinstallation reception for the Theaterworks show—if I took your portrait at the opening, come back to the deinstallation and receive a full-size printout of your image. So: come on over for art and stay for the experience.
