Exhibition Dates: January 28 – March 3, 2016

Ellien Laramee-Byers and I have co-curated a second sketchbook show, building on the successes of last year’s popular show. Once again, we have artists from around the country, as well as many from our own ‘hood here in Somerville. The show features sketchbooks, process drawings, and studies from artists, utilizing a broad range of materials and techniques.

Gary taping cat The work of poet and artist Gary Hawkins, who works with washi tape in his writing and sketch journals, inspired us to create a three-person collaborative wall drawing in the Nave Annex entry hallway. Gary was generous enough to join us from North Carolina and we had a blast further expanding our own notions of sketching.

On a personal note, creating the wall drawing for the Sketchbook Show 2016 was a fulfillment of a long-standing wish of mine. Working with Ellien and Gary just made it even better. As always, I am deeply indebted to the Nave Gallery and Susan Berstler for making shows like this possible in Somerville.

Multiple / Unique @ Washington Street Art Center

Friday, June 10 6pm to 9pm.

At Mastwood Press Ira Cummings, Rachel Silber, and I work independently in a collective environment that allows for interchange of resources and ideas. This show at the Washington Street Art Center highlights our separate, related viewpoints and approaches to printmaking.  I’ll be showing my newest series, Tool World in which I am animating hand-tools as a playful way to continue my explorations of the  man-made and natural worlds.

Ira Cummings uses form and color to invoke order and structure, balanced with chaos. Drawing on a vocabulary of techniques from both modern and traditional printmaking, his works are formal without being austere. Rachel Silber combines images in drypoint or woodblock with unrepeatable imagery directly from the monotype plate to elaborate on one central image through a series of prints.

Multiple/Unique runs from June 4 to June 25, with gallery hours
Saturdays from 12noon to 4pm.
