Great opening on Sunday, March 17th of "THIS IS | on the subject of art," curated by CCAD's own Julie Abijanac. What a fantastic turnout! We even had three intrepid students bike from CCAD--a good 45 minute ride each way--on that chilly day. The show will be up until April 12th, and the hours are 10:00am-4:00pm Monday through Friday. If you visit, you'll get to see great work by fellow CCAD faculty Shannon Benine, Matt Flegle, Michael Goodson, Danielle Julian-Norton, Kelly Malec-Kosak, Andrea Myers, Susan Li O'Connor, Tim Rietenbach, Mariana Smith, and Melissa Vogley-Woods.

I was pleased to install my 2012-2013 piece Divided Attention again; I last exhibited it at Oregon College of Art & Craft in a fantastic space that was a thoroughfare for college visitors. It was difficult to photograph it in that setting, so I relished the chance to get better images. The soft light of the gallery and Julie's generous placement helped it look its best. (Thanks Julie!) The new images, as well as an artist statement about the series, are on my website here under "works > studio works > pennant collages."
