have you seen tues-thurs?

Levy Gallery - install shot 8

i'm not sure where this week has gone. it just sort of went poof! i didn't get to participate in julie's week of color.... but had such a good time seeing everyones responses. sometimes photos speak volumes more than words could ever.

above is an install shot from the show at the richard levy gallery . i was so so so happy with how it turned out. i knew that they would do a good job as their vision is just so clear and lovely, but until you see something for yourself, you just never know, you know? kerri rosenstein and i had thought that it would be better to have our works sort of intermingle. her work and mine speak really well to one another. it was very clear that this was the work of two people and yet there were a few of her pieces i felt i could have made and visa versa. kerri was really a joy. i think she's coming through the bay area soon - so i'm hoping to spend a bit more time with her.

i was even OK with how the doilies on acetate looked. definitely not my favorite solution, but not absolutely horrid either.

all my shots of the show are here . as an aside - have you checked out the collections option at flickr? i'm loving it. i wish i had more time to organize stuff over there. i wish i had time to look at everyones photos.

today i am trying to clear the piles on my desk, finish grading, get some underdog stuff in order, finally unpack and do some laundry!! and i'm still trying to solve my glue problem. i'm hoping someone from here can give me the solution i need.... fingers crosssed.

have a lovely weekend and a great friday the 13th. i'm hoping to get back into the blog groove next week [but alas... no promises]

the photos of the show look really fabulous...your work is so delicate that I wish we could see it close-up!
I love how your work was paired with kerri's...they do seem like there is enough similarities and differences to make seeing the work together really interesting.
I hope you have a good weekend and take a bit of a breather as you catch up!

Congrats on the show, it looks wonderful and serene. I would love to lie on the floor of the gallery and have the installation on the ceiling like star constellations. Such a beautiful dream :) (By the way, I love the stuff in your shop)

i was thinking
the same thing...
there are
definitely
so of her work
that i could
see you
making...
it's so amazing
when the work
of 2 artists
joins
so seamlessly...
along
the same vein
yet
so uniquely
individual.
hope you had
a good weekend!
xoxo

tue-thurs is one thing, but I'm wanting to know where Jan-April went!? I can't believe May is nearly upon us already.

The show looks beautiful and delicate and oh-so peaceful. Definitely a space I could sit in for hours at a time just enjoying the tiny details, the colours, the threads and also the interplay between the two kinds of work. Congrats on such a successful show, and to those who installed it.
