This semitransparent painting experiment I’ve had in progress for a while is taking shape, and I’m finally putting my foot down, applying for window display opportunities, and forcing myself to figure out how to actually hang it. Feeling optimistic. I ordered some earth magnets this week! Here’s the beginnings of a hypothetical installation arrangement, missing a few more blobby droplet thingies that have yet to be added (can you tell they’re painted on the BACK? So fun!), along with more painting segments (or a separate grouping maybe?).
It’s sounding likely that I’ll be doing a window display for Susan Hensel Gallery sometime next year, and some other exhibition ideas/opportunities are in the works. I also recently confirmed an exhibition at One Yoga in Uptown, Minneapolis next February and March. When I stopped by to check out the wall space Claudia Poser‘s work was there! I love her stuff and she and her husband own one of my paintings. Yay for good vibes. My little seedlings, podlings, bubbles and ladder thingies are ready to get their Namaste on. I’m considering titling the show Vrksasana (tree pose).
In the more immediate future though, The Land of Parcheesopoly will be back at Open Streets in Saint Paul at University Ave & Hamline with ARTIFY on September 15th AND in North Minneapolis on Lowry on September 21st! Come roll the dice with me and see what happens! Also, I need volunteers for both those days! Hit me up. It is seriously a kick in the pants watching & helping people play and make up rules.
