Last weekend I finished all the work for my upcoming show:
Arizona Commission on the Arts Awards: 2009 Prescott Project Grant Recipients -May 21-June 25, 2010, Yavapai College Art Gallery.
Outside my studio is a covered patio, where I assembled my Mariposa Grove 3 to see what it would look like once it was in the gallery. I had been over the ideas for installation with the powers that be in the gallery. To make a long story short ( and not to sound like I am complaining) it didn’t work out the way it was planned, so today I took the strands apart and right now they are laying on the gallery floor till tomorrow, when I will reassemble it in another way to hang on the wall, flat and not the way it was intended.
Hopefully this will have a happy ending. The show opens Friday night this week and after 3 months of work it would be great to hang this piece. Stay tuned and we will see what happens. Until then here are some pictures of the piece 10 feet long and 42 inches across the circle.
