I’ve been fortunate enough to be asked to be a visiting artist next week at Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville GA, where we will be completing their first aluminum furnace! Fellow WVU graduate student and alum Matt Forrest is now faculty at GCSU, and I look forward to meeting the rest of the faculty and students and sharing what we’ve been up to at Fairmont State University.
O-6 was recently accepted to the Marshall University: School of Art & Design 6th Annual National Juried Exhibition titled “Give Me Some Space!”. This year’s exhibition was juried by Alison Helm, chair/coordinator of the WVU Visual Arts Department, and it sounds like a great show. If you are in the area, the exhibition opens January 16th at the Marshall VAC and runs through February 10th.
I am excited to have weighting accepted to the Western Cast Iron Conference show Concept to Completion in Scottsdale Arizona. The show had over 110 entries and was juried by Mary Bates Neubauer and Wendy Raisanen. This exhibition will take place during the 2016 5th Biennial Western Cast Iron Art Conference and will be on display in Scottsdale, Arizona in The Gallery@ the Civic Center Library. The show runs October 3rd-December 31, 2016.
A great cross-section of new work by the FSU Intro to Sculpture crew, especially considering I didn’t give them much time to get patterns made and molds packed up this fall. Another big thanks to the Shepherd U sculpture department for having us down to pour and the folks at Quikrete for generously supplying us with a great sand for molds-
I’m excited to bring two recent pieces to Ground Floor Gallery in Nashville for a 2 person exhibition later this month. RDML and O-6 will be paired up with some really great works on paper by Barbara Schreiber, including Small Ghosts, Crop Dusters, Deer Gate, Dog Gate, and The Road to Yakima. The show will be up April 4-30, If you are in the Nashville area, come check it out-
After the small works exhibition in Philly, this little guy will be heading to Denver. He was slated to meet his other two mates out there, but they will still be in TX at a show. Exciting to get these pieces out to the public, the feedback has been positive.
