Renegade Craft Fair 2012



Hull-House and Watie White Deinstall

Last Thursday night was big.  I attended the book release party/presentations and discussions surrounding the recent release, Art and Social Justice Education:  Culture as Commons.  It was an exciting evening filled with friends, colleagues, and inspiration at the Hull-House.  I have been watching episodes of the Pinky Show ever since.

After the event at the Hull-House it was off to the Co-Prosperity Sphere in Bridgeport to assist in the deinstallation of Watie White‘s exhibition, The Chicago Project.  On the way I spotted one of Watie’s posters on the door at Maria’s.

Animal as Metaphor

AnimalAsMetaphorBrochureFinalI have been trying to access the photos from our recent trip to Wisconsin to see my latest exhibition, Animal as Metaphor- however, i uploaded them and iphoto isn’t displaying them for some strange reason.  I should reboot-it is always the reboot.  Anyway, here is the flyer of the show and I will post some pics of our adventures and my work very soon.  I am now working on two embroidered pieces.  One of a famous racehorse, Black Gold.  Who was forced to race beyond his capacity and broke his leg-the injury left the horse destined for the business end of a shotgun in front of mourning fans.  The fans lined up and snipped pieces of the dead celebrities mane and tail.  His hometown was so devastated that school was cancelled on his behalf.

The other piece is about consumption and it involves a deconstructed fox fur that my friend, Ryan recently gave me.  It is on the drawing board but I envision threads hanging out of the foxes mouth and dead bird hanging from the other end.  Still in the works- but I am excited.
