Recent shows | Late Winter, Early Spring 2013

A few new shows and events that I am involved with right now:

I'm in a show at Texas Women's University Gallery of Art is a show Seductive Alchemy: Books by Artists Curated by: Ruth R. Rogers / Curator of Special Collections at the Margaret Clapp Library / Wellesley College. The show is from January 21 to February 15, with a Lecture and Reception: January 22, 4-6pm    

The new book I just finished called Paradise Lost: An Allegory will be in a show at Seager Gray Gallery, in Mill Valley, CA. It opens on Saturday, February 9th. The show is called Ideation by Chance and is a celebration of both the 100th anniversary of the birthday of John Cage (last year) and the opening of CODEX, the largest Art of the Book Fair in the world. The show was curated by Barb Tetenbaum and Julie Chen.    


There is a reception for The Physical Photograph on Saturday night at Art Intersection in Gilbert AZ, a suburb of Phoenix. The reception is from 6 to 8 pm on January 19th. The Physical Photograph, in the North and South Galleries, explores the inherent physicality of object based photographic art. Included in the exhibition are mixed media/sculptural objects and book arts. I have two books in this show.

I'm in a show at the gallery space of the Purchase College Library, State University of NY in Purchase NY, called P is for Performance: Artists' Books on Shelves and in Public Spaces which takes place from February 6th to April 24th. This show was curated by Tennae Maki.

A little later in the Spring I will have two pieces in a show in Las Cruces, NM at Unsettled Gallery in a show called Crossroads: Book Arts on the Border. The show will run April 13th to May 4th.

And lastly, two lectures/visiting artist gigs: during the week of February 18th I will be doing a visiting artist visit at MICA in Baltimore, then in March giving a lecture/paper on teaching photo artists' book-making in the university. This will be at the 50th anniversary national conference of SPE (the Society for Photographic Education) in Chicago, IL.
