hi, wow it has been a long time. in fact it has been a long few months and i have a lot to share. but the most pressing to share is that i have my first solo show ever, and it is up right now!! i will be sharing some of the artwork from that show over the next few weeks. but here are the details:
Legends of Paul Bunyan, Lumberjack and Stacey Malasky: Cut Paper
I have two new series of paper-cuts on display at the gallery. the first one explores the life john chapman who later came to be known as johnny appleseed. the second is called ‘home economics’ and is centered around hands making things. There will be a closing reception on Friday, September 23, 2011 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm. The artists will discuss their work at a gallery talk on Saturday, September 24 at 2:00 pm. The exhibit and gallery talk are free and open to the public. The show is located at Paint Creek Center for the Arts at 407 Pine Street Rochester, MI. The show runs through September 24th.
in addition to my show there is a group show in the upstairs gallery that is all about paul bunyan, and worth checking out!!
