More small drawings

From time to time I have been working on the series of small charcoal landscapes I began in August. I now have around thirty of these pieces. About halfway through the series, I reoriented the format from horizontal to vertical and began to explore a shaft of light or emanation rather than the nighttime sky. Here are a few more from the series.  The rest are uploaded under the portfolio "firmament series 2010".

Paper exhibition

The graduate works on paper exhibition closes today in New Bedford, MA. The show was a success. We displayed a good mix of what the department as a whole is doing with the medium. Below are some photos of the exhibition for those of you who can't make it out in person.

Paper exhibition

los gemelos; 18 x 18"; mixed media on paper

  This Wednesday I will be installing an exhibition of work from the University of Massachusetts graduate department in Gallery 244 at the Star Store in New Bedford, MA.  The theme is paper - not just works on paper either, but anything on, of, or about paper.  The show will feature work from three fine arts disciplines, painting, printmaking, and drawing.

  Opening reception for the exhibition is Thursday, December 9th from 5 - 7 pm.  The work will only be up for a short while -  one week - so don't miss it.  Click here for more information.
