out of the frying pan

and into the fire...

workAday

i'm back from LA. more on the show as soon as i can get all the photos organized and cropped but....

HUGE thanks to everyone who came out... it's such a joy to put faces with names and to see friends old and new. also thanks again to my very special assistants... and to all the folks involved with the little bird gallery . they made me feel so welcome, and went so out of their way.... high fives all around [even if you don't high five!]. i feel so lucky.

this week i'm installing a show i co-curated with lorene anderson entitled workAday.

after creating a drawing a day with thread for a year i was really curious what other artists would do if they had to create a complete work in a day. so we asked 10 others besides ourselves to give it a try for a minimum of three weeks. the results are actually really varied and really cool.

four weeks of my drawing a day series will be shown

the show is at BLANKSPACE GALLERY
6608 san pablo avenue, oakland, california 94608 • 510.547.6608

there's a reception this Saturday from 6-9pm and a reception on Friday Nov. 2 from 7-10pm. if you are in the Bay Area - come on by!

more info is available on blankspace gallery's website
