Delivered and dissected…

"Overlooked Artifacts" Opening Reception 10.25 

In the spirit of collage, all paper has possibilities... so I often incorporate bits and pieces of the mail into my work. Lately it's become something of a compulsion! For my next exhibition, I've made collages from whatever was delivered in the mail each day during a three month period. 

The collages are small works on paper, of paper: little jewels from the remnants of discarded and unanticipated imagery that mark the passage of time. They've been a challenge to work on—some days the pickings were slim, other days the potential ingredients were abundant, and on a few sad days (and Sundays), there was nothing in the mailbox. 

Hope you can come by and see the results of this postal project! "Overlooked Artifacts" at Spark Gallery runs October 24th through November 17th. Special events include:

Opening Reception on Friday, October 25th, 6-9pm
First Friday on November 1st, 5-9pm
Last Look on Sunday, November 17th, 1-4pm

SparkGallery is located at 900 Santa Fe Drive in Denver's Art District on Santa Fe. Hours are Thursdays 12-5pm, Fridays 12-9pm, Saturdays 12-5pm, Sundays 1-4pm. 

Also showing: Barbara Carpenter and in the North Gallery, the Rocky Mountain Collage Society presents "Inside the Box: Work inspired by Joseph Cornell."

National Collage Society
29th Annual Juried Exhibition
My collage, "Syncopation," has been juried into this show which will be available to view online later this year.

Commission in progress
I'm in the midst of working on a series of five collages of abstract vistas for a new office building. I'll be writing more about the project, which includes enlarging the collages into "wallpaper" for an interior stairwell, soon on my blog.
