Update Fall 2013 —
What’s Coming Up?

Large Spool with Knitted Material
This fall I am working intensively toward a large installation project at the Nicolaysen Art Museum as part of a review of regional installation work. The exhibit entitled The Nature of Things, will showcase three artists whose work communicates via the installation form.

I will construct a Wyoming metaphorical landscape, in a 30'x60' space entitled Place/Displace. Using found objects and invented forms, the piece will cross boundaries and invite questions about ease and dis-ease. I am pleased to announce that Wyoming's well known dance troupe Contemporary Dance Wyoming will be performing an interpretative response to my installation at the opening reception at the museum on January 24, 2014. The exhibition will be up through April 26, 2014.

Also this fall, I will be a participant in the Wyoming Art Council's Biennial Fellowship Exhibition held at the Nicolaysen Art Museum. This biennial exhibition showcases the winners of fellowships and honorable mentions. I was the recipient of a honorable mention in 2012 and 2013. The exhibition will open on September 24th with a grand opening on Friday, November 8, 2013.

As I reviewed the photos I’ve taken seems as if this time also meant meeting in small groups to talk about details, enjoy the company of others sans needles and lot of figuring.  …and there's more »
