Okanagan Print Triennial 2015

I am one of 23 artists accepted into this year’s Okanagan Print Triennial. I decided to make my way out to Vernon for the exhibition opening and it was great to see the stunning range of works as well as a large and enthusiastic crowd. The Vernon Public Art Gallery rented some shipping containers to set up an off-site gallery a few blocks away as they couldn’t fit everything into the gallery. Here are some photo highlights from the exhibition. Congratulations to Sean Caulfield who won the grand prize.

 

2014 Southern Printmaking Biennale

I am pleased to have one of my recent etchings included in the 2014 Southern Printmaking Biennale, juried by Ericka Walker (an amazing Canadian lithographer based on the East Coast). The show runs from November 10 to December 12th at the Bob Owens Gallery at the University of North Georgia.

Shift | SNAP Gallery

I just returned from Edmonton where I opened my latest exhibition, Shift, at SNAP Gallery. Three of the works in the exhibition are large plexiglass works, 6′ x 4′, and ended up having to be driven up in a motorhome making for the craziest delivery of works I’ve ever participated in. The exhibition is up until May 31st.

Installing works at SNAP

Installing works at SNAP

I spent most of Wednesday installing works and tweaking some of my code – a beefier motor on one of the houses required an adjustment to some of my coding for the Arduino. Four of the houses in the exhibition respond to the viewers presence and cause an action within the house such as a door opening and closing or a light turning on.

The day of the opening the weather was cold but the window looked hot. Despite several other events on the same day, my opening and artist- talk were well attended. The people at SNAP make for some great hosts!

An installation shot of the works in the show. Two bodies of work were installed – the larger plexiglass works reflect the small plexiglass prints inside of each of the houses. Two of the large plexiglass works are brand-new and have never been exhibited before.
