I am excited to invite my colleagues, friends and supporters to:
Spring Studio Residents Artist Talks and Open Studios
Gallery Aferro, New Media Room
73 Market Street, Newark, NJ, 07102
June 2, 2013, 2:00PM
At this event, I will be speaking about my work and practice along with my cohort of Gallery Aferro residents, which include Dara Alter, Patricia Dahlman, Anne Q. McKeown, and Vikki Michalios. Talks will commence at 2:00PM, to be followed by open studios.
As many of you know, my current work includes ceramic sculptural explorations of violence, trauma and hate crimes based on regulating difference. Dara Alter is using Google Street View to travel remotely, as a precursor to her paintings. Patricia Dahlman is making sculpture and two-dimensional works by cutting out forms in canvas, then stuffing and sewing the forms together. Anne Q. McKeown contrasts rational, conceptual processes with intuitive inquiry, researching, investigating, and shaping materials using chance, accident, and random samplings, as well as imagery from the canon of art history. Vikki Michalios is working with art and hydroponics technology to construct a viable off-grid ecologically sustainable garden in her studio.
If you are traveling from NYC by train, on the weekends it is often easier and quicker to travel via NJ Transit from Penn Station than the PATH Train.
