art on the left and the right
coasts that is.
tomorrow i leave for LA. i'm in a show with freddy chandra and jil weinstock that opens
THIS Saturday :: June 28th :: 6-8pm at Walter Maciel Gallery . if you are in town please come say hello. you can see a few doily toxin drawings and a new tank piece. freddy and jil are great artists - i think it will be interesting to see our respective takes on pattern, color and the domestic.
and.... on the other coast - tomorrow a show called small wonders opens at garson baker fine art . this is my first real show [besides art fairs] in new york, so i'm a bit excited. i wish i could go to see it, but seems that isn't in the cards. if anyone makes it to the show, will you let me know??? other doily toxin drawings will be on view. although i'm really sad that they won't be paired with their original partners .
this morning i had the pure pleasure of meeting andrea - and her two most perfect kids [and i waved to ward]. there are some people you just feel like you've known for a very very long time. she falls - actually glides - into that category. there was no picture snapping, but she is the physical embodiment of her photos . i don't really think i can find the words - so go look at her pictures. i can not wait until we meet again.
the other really nice thing about this weekend is that i get to see some good friends [including a new little one] AND celebrate my dad's birthday with him [and my mom and grandma]. my dad is a really unassuming, gentle soul. he doesn't like to call too much attention to himself [unless there's a camera on him - then he always makes a goofy face. wait. i do that too]. if you are in a room full of people and someone calls out - pick the guy who's dependable, trustworthy, and kind the room would point to him.
not sure if i'll be posting while in la-la land but... remember you can enter the little give away if you are so inclined.
happy rest of the week!
