I'm excited to announce that two of my automata have been chosen for Bedford Gallery's Sweet n Low: An International Juried Show of Cute. Many thanks to Jurors Evan Pricco, editor of Juxtapoz Magazine, and artists Susannah Kelly & Neil Perry of Antler Gallery, Portland OR, for selecting me.
The two pieces selected are A Wounded Child and The Four Humors.
This will be the very first time I will have shown my sculptural work outside of the Midwest, and I am thrilled. I will be present at the opening reception to demonstrate my automata and look forward to meeting the other artists and attendees.
From the Bedford Gallery Website: The artists selected for Sweet n Low will extend the genre of cute from cuddly and precious to creepy and ironic. From kitsch and Margaret Keane’s Big Eyes, to Japanese anime and the contemporary Pop Art work of Takashi Murakami, we’re looking to unleash the roly-poly, goofily-gamboling, saccharine-honeyed creatures on this earth and beyond!
The opening reception is June 22, 2017 from 6-8 pm.
The show will run from June 22 to September 3, 2017.
