Upcoming exhibits

This summer, you can see my work in two exciting exhibitions.

Danfoth Art's Community of Artists exhibit will feature my piece, Sprung.


Room83, a wonderful new space that has recently opened in Watertown at 83 Spring Street, will be showing another piece from the series "Passing Strange" in the Work for Food fundraiser and sale. 50% of the sale price will go to the Watertown Food Pantry, and 50% will go to the artist.

I will again be part of the annual Exposed exhibition in Stowe VT sponsored by the Helen Day Art Center. My piece, Meander, a collaboration with poet Lizzy Fox, will be on view outside for three months on the bike path in Stowe. It will be similar to, but not exactly like, Approach.

Approach will also be part of  Figment Boston on the Rose Kennedy Greenway this July!

Approach at Art Rocks Menotomy

My big project this spring has been curating Art Rocks Menotomy, an exhibit of temporary sculpture and installation at Menotomy Rocks Park in my hometown of Arlington, MA. I am enamored of public art. I love coming upon art in unexpected places, and have wanted to place sculptures at this little jewel of a local park for many years.

My piece, Approach, is a collaboration with Arlington-based poet Jessie Brown, and it is take on the lowly yard sign, a ubiquitous marketing tool that pops up like dandelions in the cityscape. I always thought that they should be put to a better use - after all, they withstand the elements, and they are flat like a painting surface.

I've started another blog that documents this project and the ones that will follow in its footsteps, namely Meander, coming to Exposed in Stowe VT this summer.
