This exhibition "pays homage to the sky and all of its proponents."

My humorous attempt at invisibility, a dimensional work on paper, originally inspired by the watercolor paintings of Gladys Nilsson, is included in this group show. Curated by Jennifer Gill, a former Prague Studio Program student, "Big Sky" is an eclectic collection of works that all seem to be ... looking up.

Tues - Fri 12:30 - 5:30PM
(Sat. by appointment)

(Located in the Sharp building of SAIC.

A small collection of my video animations will be shown at DePaul University as part of the Experimenta 1 Video course this month. "Animated Pages" 2006, "Photo Double" 2005, and the stop-motion battle of a monstrous intruder, "A Knock at the Door" 2004-2005 will be shown by Susan Giles, in this introductory college video class.

I am pleased to have been invited to be a part of Giles' curriculum. In addition, she will present this blog, "Messy Desk" and my on-going virtual book, "Travel Journal 2007" to her students, as examples of new media and traditional forms working together in an artist's practice.
