I am in a group show at Parentheses Gallery in Halifax which opened today 5/25/13, A show that celebrates the idea of misfits: misfit artists. Misfit musicians and misfit pieces of artwork. That one piece that sits outside of an artists usual practice or body of work. Be it part of a sculpture that was never used. A work in a medium they just had to try. Perhaps it was an experiment that opened up a new way of creating. Or not. Maybe it is a finished idea. Then again maybe not. But that piece sits on its own and is special.Go to link

An absolute surprise and incredible honor: I opened my mail last week to find an envelop containing a congratulatory letter informing me that I was a recipient of an Individual Grant from the Belle Foundation. This is an honor and grant that I did not apply for nor do I know anyone who nominated me or how I was even selected. The letter stated “You have been chosen for this award as an artist who is genuinely committed to his work, and as someone who demonstrates significant potential for continued growth and accomplishment in the field of the arts”
I am still in a slight state of shock and elation. THANK YOU Belle Foundation, for this honor and your support. . . . whoever you are!
The ability to translate your loves, fears, and emotions is a task that not everyone is up for; it is a task that Derek Weisberg has lovingly embraced for a better part of his life.Go to link
