Salem Art Works

I did a two-part residency at Salem Art Works in Salem, NY this summer. The first part was broken into short visits every couple of weeks as I tilled, planted, and then tended an 82-foot diameter labyrinth of sunflowers and morning glories. The second part was an intense week of work on their 77-foot gallery wall. Both are on view through the 2008 season, which ends on October 1.

All Points West

I was fortunate and grateful to be invited to build a commissioned piece at the All Points West music and arts festival in Liberty State Park, NJ. The piece- "Spire"- was a 17 foot high octagonal pyramid, painted and then covered with the spheres I have used in previous installations. It was up on the hill in the VIP area, and was well received. I hope to be able to do future installations at this and other festivals.
