This doe was with two others - but this was the better photo.

I'm clearing some storage room, so I put seven paintings on Etsy tonight for just fifty bucks each (including shipping to anywhere in the US). These were from my "Grisaille" show last February. They were made using spray painted stencils and a little acrylic paint. They're 12x12" and would look nice as a quiet accent in a modern interior. Hand made, signed and ready to hang. Visit my Etsy site here (or click on the above image).
edit: after posting them late last night - there are only six left this morning.
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

After months of installation - the Denver Art Museum will unveil Embrace! this Saturday night. The show is made up of site-specific works by 17 different artists. I've posted about some of the progress and artists in the past - and I'm looking forward to seeing how it all comes together. Some of the artists like Denver-based Rick Dula have been there for weeks (probably months) working on huge murals, while others have installed works seemingly overnight. The museum will be putting out a two-volume publication about the exhibition and the history of installation art. This will be a good resource for those of you not able to see the works in person, but as with most art - it is much better experienced in person.
The Denver Art Museum has shown numerous exceptional shows since we have moved here (Radar and Daniel Richter were two of my favorites). While I don't exactly know what to expect tomorrow, one thing is for sure - this will be a exhibition that you won't see anywhere else. I think this show is a great way to make use of some of the really unconventional spaces in the Hamilton Building.
There will be never-before-seen works from: El Anatsui (Nigeria/Ghana), Kristin Baker (U.S.), Matthew Brannon (U.S.), Rick Dula (U.S., Denver), Katharina Grosse - pictured above -(Germany), Christian Hahn (Germany), Nicola López (U.S.), John McEnroe (U.S., Denver), Rupprecht Matthies (Germany), Tobias Rehberger (Germany), Charles Sandison (Finland/U.K.), Dasha Shishkin (U.S./Russia), Shinique Smith (U.S.), Jessica Stockholder (U.S.), Timothy Weaver + eMAD (U.S., Denver), Lawrence Weiner (U.S.) and Zhong Biao (China).

Our Art Appreciation guest artist this week was my friend Rachel Hawthorn who gave us a lot of interesting background and insight into her work in regard to the nature of memory and the conceptual framework that informs her multi-disciplinary art. I recommend taking some time to look through her website and explore her quiet photographs as well as web-based content and video.
