"Beam Me Up" at Gallery 110
I have a painting included in Gallery 110's 6th Annual Juried Exhibit, which will be on view for the month of February. The exhibit was curated by Melissa Feldman, a faculty member of Cornish College of the Arts. After choosing from over 1,500 submitted works from around the nation (they used the Call for Entry online submission system), she titled the exhibit "Beam Me Up" and noted the process was "like receiving messages from sentient life on other planets." I imagine sorting through that many entries would be fascinating but exhausting. Trends she recognized included the "zen aesthetics of minimalism", which I would say my piece, Murmur and Sigh, represents.
Gallery 110 is an artist-run, nonprofit space in Pioneer Square's Toshiro Kaplan building, one of the best places to find a full gamut of art in Seattle. The gallery has just been remodeled and will be fresh and bright for the installation of the new show. I look forward to seeing the other works in the exhibit. Other than regular hours, Gallery 110 will be open for the First Thursday Artwalk this week (Feb. 4) and there will be a reception and awards presentation on Saturday, February 6, from 5 to 7, to which the public is also invited. For more information, go to Gallery 110.
Here I will keep you up to date on my exhibits and other artistic endeavors.
