Tobey Albright and I have been collaborating on an exhibition, Privates, to share our personal art collections at Carthage College in Kenosha, WI (Sept 6 – Nov 4).

Please join us for our artist talk and catalogue release Saturday, October 28th, at 1 pm. We will discuss the concepts and motivations behind the exhibition with gallery director, Ryan Peter Miller. American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation is provided.

Saturday, October 14th, we worked with students and faculty at Carthage College to silk-screen six separate variations of a cover for an edition of 500 exhibition catalogues. These covers, along with the interiors, will be released as the final gesture of the exhibition at the H.F. Johnson Gallery of Art.

I have several paintings included in a group exhibition, ECHOES, in Berlin, Germany (Sept 12 – Nov 11). The exhibition is organized by curator Mirjam Casandra Wendt and artist Jonah Criswell to bridge the distance between Kansas City and Berlin. rK (or Ratskeller Galerie für zeitgenössische kunst) is located in the historic town hall on Möllendorffstraße 6, a beautifully renovated historic space in Berlin’s Lichtenberg neighborhood. rK is part of the Kommunale Gallien Berlin network (or Municipal Galleries Berlin are together the KGB) the working group municipal galleries Berlin. Luckily, I received a DCASE IAP grant to travel to Berlin and attend our opening! It was phenomenal to meet truly amazing artists and curators during Berlin’s Art Week. The exhibition will travel to Kansas City, Missouri. http://www.echoes.international/Kansas-City

FLATFILES (May 23, 2012)

I am thrilled to be participating in the 2012 Kansas City Flatfiles exhibition at H&R Block Artspace. This invitational biennial exhibition provides visitors with a unique and intimate art viewing experience, encouraging viewers to browse through individual artist portfolios stored within flatfile cabinets, or select video works to screen in the “Videofile.” June 2 – September 29, 2012.

NEUTRAL SPACE at SBG ()

I will be participating in, Neutral Space, a group exhibition opening June 1st, 2012, at Spray Booth Gallery. Check out the exhibition essay here. It seems author, Neil Thurn, is throwing down the gauntlet for Kansas City, “We need to engage ideologically with and against our peers and do so more actively than Halley has… Otherwise we will be stuck making neutral spaces, work that is ideologically empty and without consequence, while drinking free alcohol and half-heartedly congratulating each other. Artists need to re-engage with ideology and therefore each other. And this is true for not only geometric artists but all artists in general.” Hope to see you to the opening, 6pm-10pm.

BAD AT SPORTS / ART PRACTICAL (May 17, 2012)

Kansas City had the pleasure of hosting writers and editors from the San Francisco-based online publication Art Practical. You can listen to some fantastic interviews between AP and Plug Projects, an artist-run gallery, on Bad At Sports. Through this exchange, I also wrote and published a “Shotgun Review” for Art Practical online: Subterranean Gallery’s Hot Tub Dialogues.
