I can’t believe it’s May already…where has the time gone? Well, I know of a few places. March and April have been busy … I've been making art and picking up metal! And in May and June, my art is on display in both Vancouver, Washington and Beaverton, Oregon.
In downtown Vancouver, Washington, I am showing with fellow metal artist Wendy Armstrong at the Sixth Floor Gallery in the Clark County Public Service Center. For this show titled Wanderings, I created a few new wall pieces in my crop circle series, and added a few other wall sculptures too.
earth bound is the largest and is inspired by the earth bound by the sea. Or is the sea bound by the earth? I guess it depends on your perspective. Which is it for you?
my journey of change is inspired by the sometimes difficult, sometimes well done, journey we all travel. Our journeys are not independent, but stitched, or in this case welded, together.
In Beaverton, Oregon I am now represented at Art On Broadway! The artists at this gallery are quite talented, so I am definitely honored to be among them. I created a new table top triangle (or geometric) series to show in May and June. Machine shop remnants were the initial inspiration for these, but many of them also have a organic and earth feel to them. One of my favorites, fractured earth also has an earth and sea theme and is small enough for your desk or coffee table.
In addition to creating and showing art, I made a drive to Sacramento & Loomis, California in March to pick up some of my metal. Yes, I had, and still have, ‘raw material’ that has been rusting away on a farm in Loomis. Some of it made the trip up to Washington this time, and I will be back for more later.
As you see, it’s been a busy and productive couple of months. If you are in the greater Portland - Vancouver area, I invite you to visit my showings. And it would be awesome to see you at the receptions!
