Hey, creative friend here’s another chance to see my work in person. An exploration of texture — a powerful element found in many artforms is the focus of this upcoming exhibition “See Me, Feel Me”, at Spectrum Gallery. It’s a newer gallery and I showed my work in their space the very first year they got into business.
Barbar Nair, the wonderful art director at Spectrum, contacted me to ask me to submit work for this show and I did. Barbara is great to work with and I like the fact that she’s not only interested in my work but also works to build a good relationship with the artists who exhibit in her gallery.
Three of my pieces have been accepted to be shown in this upcoming exhibit – “See Me, Feel Me“. And they are:
Lemonade Makers #2
Bread & Butter
The thing about Barbara is that as the art director, she curates the exhibitions before they are installed. She invites artists she knows and works with them by email to determine the pieces which will work together to create a cohesive show, long before drop off date comes.
So when it’s time for pieces to be dropped off she already has a sense of how the show is going to come together. I’ve talked about the importance of curating an art show in advance and it’s nice to see how Barbara uses the same principles.
I know that she chose to show these 3 pieces of my work because they have something in common – food/tea. She truly puts a lot of effort in getting the right pieces together for a cohesive exhibition as well as working with artists she feels comfortable with.
I know “See Me, Feel Me” is going to be a good show. She has a good mix of artworks [(more fiber from other artists -which I helped her get), paintings, photography, mixed media and more].
Below are the details. Also, you can read the press release. Finally, if you can, go see this exhibit.
