I Quit My Day Job To Make Work

Yeah I did, but it was a cheapo part-time thing, and thisahere show might be more important than that, so...you know...

I've been working on weekends for the past three weeks to come up with things.  "Things" are going well, but I am continually reminding myself not to get too confident, as I still believe some aspects of my work need tweaking.

Here are some previews of parts to the whole:

 And here is about 1/3 of the space to be reckoned with: yikes.


My goal is to not only make nice, fabric-y pieces, but to do so in such a way that they could be stand alone sculptures or spread out for an installation effect. Yeah, my work goes both ways.

I found out that the whole thing will be funded though the center, including travel and installation costs. This is a huge step up for me.  I feel like it is a precursor to the big time and even if it isn't, I think some amazing opportunities can arise from this experience.

My art is getting better every week.  I anticipate having strong body of work by the Aug. 22 deadline.

PS The info on the show is Sept. 2, 2011 - Jan. 7, 2012 at the McColl Center for Visual Art, 721 N. Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC.

  2. When is your opening? We'd love to go! Please remember the little people when you are rich and famous.

  3. Thank you! I doubt that I will ever be well-known or rich, but I'd sure settle for being well-regarding and not-living-week-to-week. Hello normalcy!
    Anyway, the show runs Sept. 2, 2011 thru Jan. 7, 2012 in Charlotte, NC.
    Please come visit me! : )
