Trees I Have Known

One of my new Z-Acryl pieces was accepted to a juried show in Kansas:
Trees I Have Known is a juried exhibition featuring artwork and ephemera made by and collected by a diverse group of artists, thinkers, and neighbors who have created work that reflects upon the tree as subject, metaphor, and inspiration.
The work for this exhibition was selected from submissions by 150 artists working in Lawrence and beyond. Over 30 artists working in a wide range of media will be featured:
Bobby Neel Adams (New York), Charles Boone (Illinois), Kyle Bravo & Jenny LeBlanc (Louisiana), Stacey Cluppert (Wisconsin), Eric Farnsworth (Lawrence), Jon Feinstein (New York), Jenny Lee Fowler (New York), Justin Guilbert (France), Mirka Hokkanen (Washington), Paul Hotvedt (Lawrence), Chancey Jahnig (Lawrence, currently), Lora Jost (Lawrence), Mindy Kober (Texas), Jeff Krolick (New York), Dave Loewenstein (Lawrence), George Lorio (Texas), Robin Masi (Massachusetts), Eleanor Matheis (Lawrence), Elaine McKay (New York), Michele Monseau (Texas), Melanie Mowinski (Massachusetts), Colleen Mullins (Minnesota), Tim Obrien (Lawrence), Erika Osborne (West Virginia), Sarah Nicole Phillips (New York), Katherine Sehr (New York), Erika Shearer (Lawrence), Matthew Szosz (California), Suzanne Szucs (New York), Jake Vail (Lawrence), Erika Villareal (Indiana), KT Walsh ( Lawrence), and Roscoe Wilson (Ohio)
The Percolator exhibition was borne from discussions with Stephen Goddard, curator of Trees & Other Ramifications: Branches in Nature & Culture. The Spencer Museum at the University of Kansas will be showing Trees & Other Ramifications: Branches in Nature & Culture during the course of this exhibition.

Spring Thing Reception

Of course I forgot my camera (2 times now!) as we were setting up the show this week. I also went to a cool letterpress artists printpalooza at the Kings Bookstore, with steamroller printing and everything, and of course did not have my camera with either. I think I need to strap it to me permanently or something.

I wanted to announce the reception for Spring Thing at the Grand Impromptu Gallery this friday March 6th from 5-8pm. We will also be open for the monthly art walk Thursday March 19th from 4-8pm.

I helped paint and hang some work this week. The show looks really nice, if you have a chance to stop by. We are featuring works from all the members, so there is a really nice variety of 2-d and 3-d pieces. I wont forget to take the camera with to the reception on friday and then I can finally post some photos.
