Come Sit a While

Come Sit a While poster

My grandmother used to pat the seat beside her and say “Come, sit a while”. It was a time to set everything else aside while you took notice of your place in the big wide world  and watched the grass blow in the breeze, the tide come in and out.  Those moments sparked the idea for this show, a closer look at the local flora and wild landscapes thriving just outside the city.

 Ive been writing  press releases about slowing down and taking time to really notice things around you, while at the same time letting my own life nearly bubble over.  This month I officially filled up the calendar for 2012, with a mix of art shows,  projects, and commission work that came from the “say yes to everything” mantra of 2011. It seems impossible that I have gone so fast from a few black scraps of paper on the work table, to work scheduled a year in advance, but it has.

With that realization comes a strong wish for me to take my own advice, to slow down and look carefully, at my own place, my own impact, and my own direction.

And I did take on one more  little extra project, but its also deeply rooted in slowing down and simplifying. Check out one simple question , and stay tuned to see what I come up with for them.

Below are a few previews from the upcoming show. For more details and to attend the  artist program on April 17th see the news page.
