It seems like I have all sorts of shows coming up, all over the country! Between looking forward to my next firing, and planning my trip to Japan, it’s looking like it’s going to be some very busy months. I’ll also be heading to NCECA in April, which should be a lot of fun. I’m really looking forward to tracking down ceramics friends from across the country, and some even from around the world!
The first show to open is “Endangered“, at the Gloria Kennedy Gallery in Brooklyn. It was an international juried show, and is viewable as of today, but the opening reception will be on February 5th, as part of a First Thursday art walk. I will actually be flying out to NYC to attend it, along with taking some time to catch up with my New York friends. I will also be working on a collaboration sculpture with Dan Funderburgh, my brother, who’s also in NYC. I’m going to bring bisque fired critters out to him to do underglaze designs on. I’m pretty excited about it.
The day after I return from NYC, I’ll be heading across Puguet Sound to Bremerton, WA, to attend an artists’ reception for CVG 2009. CVG 2009 is a juried show that collected submissions from more than 260 artists, mostly across the state of Washington. The show will opening on Feb 1st, and run through the end of the month, at the Bremerton Collectives Visions Gallery. The show will also be open late on Thursday, Feb 5th, for the local art walk. I’ll unfortunately still be in NYC that evening.
Also in Washington state, I’ve been invited to a show in Tacoma. “The Path of the Flame” is a show of Pacific Northwest woodfire artists at Gallery Madera from Feb 19th to April 4th. The opening reception will be on Feb 21st. I’ll have more information about this as it gets closer. So far it looks like really great list of folks, including Terry Inokuma, Hiroshi Ogawa, and John Benn.
The last show is also far enough away that precise information will have to wait. Jamie Adams, a cool print artist in Pittsburgh, who I really respect, has asked for me to be part of a show tentatively titled “The day before yesterday/ The day after tomorrow”. It will be going on in March, in Pennsylvania. I will put up some more information about its post-apocalyptic goodness once March gets a bit closer.
