Screen Print Sketch -- Borderlands (a new series)
I have been invited to participate in the exhibition Street Smart at the Visual Arts Gallery in Chelsea. Please join me for the opening reception on November 30th at 6:00.
I am humbled that Ella Mudie writes about "Scheduled implosions" in her moving article, "This World is Fragile," published in the Australian art magazine, Fine Print. Mudie considers warfare and ruins by examining new works made by New York and Beirut artists. See asjacent link:

I am honored to have several pieces on view this Summer in UICA's exhibition, The Jump Off, which is open to the public June 2nd through August 26.
From the UICA website:
"UICA celebrates 40 years of experimentation and growth with The Jump Off, a group exhibition that features multiple works by local, regional, and national artists. The artists included in the exhibition reveal the evolution within the creative process by presenting artwork that defines their current practice paired with earlier works - specifically, exposing the piece or pieces that served as the clear turning point; catalyzing the spark for their new work’s materials, visual or conceptual content."
The exhibition opens on June 2nd in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Click here for details.
The Scheduled Implosions Artist Book is featured in 10x10's Awake reading room at the Carnagie Museum of Art as part of the PGH Photo Fair. The 10×10 AWAKE Reading Room is an evolving library of books, zines and photography-related materials that responds to issues of liberty, resistance and social protest.
Seven Images from Scheduled Implosions are included in the Fall/Winter issue of Afterimage: The Journal of Media Arts and Cultural Criticism.
