Here are some snaps from my installation titled "Landline" at Maine Farmland Trust Gallery in Belfast, Maine. It is made from mixed media and recycled rotary phones. The receiver plays an audio track as well (you can't hear it in the photos). This is a great looking show featuring work by Lucinda Bliss, Kenny Cole, Avy Claire, Robert Shetterly, Susan Camp, and myself. More info at the Maine Art Scene blog.

In June I attended the "Contemporary Art World in Context" CIEE International Faculty Development Seminar in Mexico. The majority of our time was spent in Guanajuato, with trips to San Miguel de Allende, Toluca, and a few days in Mexico City. It was an incredible trip visiting museums, galleries, universities, and historical sites.

Maine Home + Design magazine. Curator and writer Britta Konau put this year's feature together, and it was focused on artists who work in a variety of media. The quotation in my profile reads:
"Everything starts with drawing, but I’ve never felt the need to be tied to one medium. Rather, I think of myself as a story teller, and discovering what medium will best tell the story is part of my process. I like to explore the variety of experiences a viewer might have with an intimate drawing versus, say, an environment."

Here are a few pictures of last night's performance of Drawn and Cornered, a project presented last night at the Portland Museum of Art by me and Harold Philbrook, with assistance from Ted Hummel. The performance was one of fourteen installations and happenings that made up Nightlight, an artist "intervention" organized by Kimberly Convery.
With assistance from Ted Hummel, patrons made drawings on sticky notes in the Great Hall and brought them up the stairs to the first floor landing, where Harold and I - wearing clinical/pod-men costumes with luminous helmets - were inside two drawing labs/pods built into the bay windows of the museum. Patrons inserted their drawings into a slot in the middle of the pod, and the drawings were stuck up on the clear walls of the pod from the inside. Harold and I also created our own drawings while inside the pods. Over the course of the two-hour event the walls of the pod were eventually obscured by the drawings on both sides, viewable from the inside and the outside of the museum.
These are just a few snapshots from the night. If anyone else out there in Internetland has good pictures of the performance I would appreciate getting a chance to see them! Please email me at email@example.com.
