I am putting the final touches on my first solo show in NY. It will be taking place at the Greenwich House Pottery’s Storefront Gallery. On March 1st from 6-8pm. I will be creating a small scale site specific installation; somewhere between altar, “tomb”, street scene/urban landscape, place of worship or reflection, and sculpture. I hope you can join me March 1st, if not i will post pictures.

On February 13th I will be heading to Hawaii to participate in Pow Wow Hawaii 2012: POW WOW IS A GATHERING OF CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS THAT ENGAGES WITH THE BROADER COMMUNITY IN THE PROCESS AND CREATION OF ART. From February 13 to 18, 2012, Honolulu will host over thirty artists from around the world. Opening and closing events will be held at Loft in Space, with the production of art being done all over the streets of Kaka’ako. During Pow Wow, the community is encouraged to interact with visiting artists in a creative environment. I am honored and excited to be participating in this amazing event, with amazing artists, organizers and sponsors. I will be working, live, on a 300 lb sculpture, which will exist only for the week of Pow Wow.
