Take It or Lose It

My drawing Still is currently available as part of Collar Work’s online exhibition “Take It or Lose It” during its annual fundraiser (through July 17, 2021). All of the featured artworks are $500 and under and support both the exhibiting artists and the mission of Collar Works:

“Collar Works is a non-profit art space located at 621 River St. in Troy, NY dedicated to supporting emerging and underrepresented artists, working in any media, exhibiting challenging and culturally relevant contemporary artworks. Expanding the current art vernacular in New York’s capital region, Collar Works provides a venue for community dialogue focused on serious, provocative and spirited artworks.”

This drawing, finished in early 2020, is a predecessor of the colored pencil drawings I made this past winter. I enjoy the process of using line to create fields of color that fill a page; these pieces blur the lines between “painting thinking” (form and color relationships) and “drawing thinking” (line and mark-making) for me.

Ps. One of the other featured artists is Jane Kang Lawrence, who co-curated several of my drawings into the flat file program at PeepSpace.

Two of my meditation drawings are included in Deep Blue See, an exhibition curated by Krista Scenna of Ground Floor Gallery in Park Slope, Brooklyn in partnership with Prevent Child Abuse America to raise awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Month during the month of April. [edit to update: show has been extended through June 1, 2020] I appreciate the gallery pointing out how work toward preventing child abuse is more important than ever at a time when people are staying home — home is not safe for everyone.

10% of sales from this exhibition will directly benefit Prevent Child Abuse America.

An oil painting from all the way back in 2014 is included in the Spring Flash Showroom by the Equity Gallery in lower Manhattan. It takes imagery from the architecture along the canal that runs through downtown Indianapolis, IN during my time studying painting at the Herron School of Art + Design.

This online sale runs for one week from April 10 – 17th. [edit to update: show has been extended through April 30, 2020.]

You can view the exhibition on the NYAE website, or Artsy.
