CO-LAB(ORATION): NANOTECTURE @ School 33 opens this Friday!


The past few months I've been taking a break from monsters to concentrate on a site-specific collaborative installation at School 33 Art Center in the Federal Hill, Baltimore. School 33 received a grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation to fund new renovations and art spaces throughout the interior and exterior of the building along with new collaborative works to bring together artists from a variety of disciplines. I was paired with sculptor Jonathan Latiano to create an installation in the building's back stairwell that once housed a telephone booth. Though our work and techniques are quite different, I think we managed to create something unique and cohesive that likely wouldn't have existed without out our joining forces!

The show opens this Friday September 6th, from 6-9pm (1427 Light Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21230 P: 443.263.4350) but will be on view during regular gallery hours for an entire year. If you happen to be in the Federal Hill neighborhood, please stop in and take a peek! It involves both movement and light that are hard to capture in photos, but I hope to be sharing shots of the finished piece sometime after the opening! The image above was a progress shot used for the postcard, just a teeny portion of the masses of soft units I sewed and stuffed for the project!

Summer Camp Revisited









Summer has flown by so fast and I've been neglecting the internet! Hello again!
Here are a few shots from my arts and crafts summer program that ended weeks ago. Luckily I had some amazing kiddos who were game to take on all the yarn crafts I know, along with sewing, painting, print-making and puppetry! We made this earth hand puppet stage (with moving eyes and mouth!) with a shadow puppet screen behind it. All the kids at camp had a hand in making it come together and it ended up being all about healthy eating/recycling/earth-loving good stuff!
