Saturday Is For Art: New Life For An Old Piece
Last night I attended the Holiday Art Show at the Collector's Art Group in downtown Cincinnati. As one of 16 local artists in the show, I thought I should be there as a show of support and to answer any questions about my work if anyone had one. Believe it or not, I actually had a couple of people that wanted to know what I had in mind when I painted two pieces from The Envelope Collection. I also met the chief curator of the Taft Museum of Art at the show, and I told her about the piece I created out of styrofoam, cardboard, cereal boxes, gesso and acrylic paint that was inspired by a piece in the Taft Museum. So, today I am going to put up a few photos of the piece, and on Monday I will email a few images of my work over to the Taft. While I think it would be nice if the Taft gave me a show of all my art work, the Taft is still just a bit too conservative for embracing my work, in my opinion.
