Going forward I have a new project and a new show coming up at Tipping Paint Gallery, 428 S. McDowell Street, Raleigh, NC. The show, entitled What’s the Story?, is a show of narrative work where I envision the viewer seeing story in the work. Some of the works are inspired by poem, phrase, lyric, or family. Others are inspired by imagination. All mean something to me. The hope it will find a connection to something from the viewer. Works inspired by words will have the inspiration nearby. As a bonus,viewers can become participants by leaving reactions, interpretations and stories at the scene or in The Note-book giving another dimension to the narrative. I want this to be a fun show :-).
As to the Mystery Build. I bought a kit a while back and was so excited, but I never completed a work. I did, however, play with all the wonderful materials located inside. I also used some of the “canned” goods to complete a few projects that I started even before that. Now I get to try again and for a good cause. Mystery Build is preparing 50 build kits specifically for Artspace. Artists are asked to use the kits to create up to two works of art following the rules of Mystery Build. Artists will have two months to construct their work. At the end of the two months, Artspace will auction the works off in thier first online auction! During the construction process, both Artspace and Mystery Build will work together to document and promote this project.
