22 Berwyn art show

Modular22, the art/design hybrid collaborative show is still going on through December 22nd at Studio 22 Berwyn. Saturday’s opening was fun, and it was great to see what the whole thing looked like once it was together. This assemblage of laser-cut panels was the brainchild of Jessica Calek and Dan Streeting, who run 22. If you live near the Berwyn area, you really should put it on your to-do list to pay this gallery a visit.

Over the past seven months I’ve been working on and off on a series of small 6×6 inch deconstructed corpse-paint face paintings, experimenting with variations of  woodburning and painting techniques.  I have five completed so far, I plan to do up to seven. I first debuted these at the Constructor Craft Fair, and I’ll have five of them complete and shown all together on September 15th at the Cigars and Stripes September art show.

I’ve also begun listing them in my Etsy shop. I’ll probably be adding one every few days.

50/50 Pilsen Art Show

The past two weekends I’ve been participating in the 50/50 Pilsen show.   Last weekend we had a craft fair, where I sold one of the boxes I had promised to provide a picture of–without having taken a picture of it.  So, for the rest of my life, I’ll have to just tell the story of the Red Riding Hood box I woodburned, with each side telling a little bit more of the story, including a wolf trap at the end.

I still do have the octopus box, just no picture yet. Waiting on the best possible light.

But, here are some pictures of the art I’ve got hanging in the art show, which we started Friday night, coinciding with “Second Fridays” in the Pilsen neighborhood, when galleries open their doors to the public.

This one here’s the newest piece, just finished last Friday the morning before the show, called “Egghead”.

This one’s called “Birdcage.”

Here’s the rest of the pieces I hung.  I had a lot of space to work with, so rather than bring in all wood-pieces, I set up sort of a chronology of work I’d done the past five years, earliest to latest.  Before I was into wood-burning I was all about pen and ink on paper.
