gallery 555 - sculpture exhibit

i just found out that my sculpture entitled "modern plan of survival" will be included in the washington glass school student exhibit at gallery 555 starting in a couple of days, and i'm super excited for my first sculpture on exhibit in over a decade!

i had to weld a base for the piece specifically for this show, so it will be displayed as a free standing artwork even though it was originally designed to be mounted on the wall. the stand is not permanently attached, so it can now be displayed either way. :)

being the diligent photographer that i am, i forgot to bring a camera with me when i finished and dropped off the finished piece with stand, so i will have to take a photo when i visit the gallery to post at a later time. 

the details:

Exhibition dates June 1 - 30, 2011
Artists Reception: Saturday, June 4, 3-5pm


555 12th Street NW Lobby

Washington DC 20004

"The Washington Glass School is known for its excellent student program and the quality of creative work its students produce. I wanted to celebrate their 10th anniversary by giving students an opportunity to exhibit their work in Gallery 555dc. Running and managing a school takes hard work, long hours and dedication – then more hard work. To celebrate a 10th Anniversary in the art world is a rare thing and a tribute to the founders and teachers of the Washington Glass School.”

art in hand

4 of spades; holga image (erin antognoli)

late last year i was alerted to a very unique and fun artist opportunity by friend and fellow dc metro artist michael auger - the "art in hand" project.  the project features a fully functional deck of cards each designed by a different local artist in their signature style.  other cities have gone before us, but most recently finished is the washington dc deck, which is currently available now for purchase HERE - you can check out the linked page for a preview of all the wonderful cards created by many of my friends and fellow dc artists.  i can't wait to see the deck in person!

and as if that opportunity wasn't enough, i have now found that there will be a brick and mortar exhibit of most of the artworks that are featured in the deck this summer at touchstone gallery in dc.  this is a huge collaboration of sorts, and will be so fun to be a part of. i hope you are able to check it out. details are below:
