Here Comes Peter Papertail

My student Laura from Studio 700 created this beautiful three-dimensional bunny out of construction paper today, all on her own without any instruction. I’m so proud of her!

One Piece Show this Weekend at Sol Collective

After burning down two years ago, Sol Collective is back in a new location with a new show entitled, “One Piece,” featuring a single piece of art from a wide variety of artists. The opening is Saturday, March 20, from 7-11pm, with a $5 suggested donation. Beside the art there will be food, wine and entertainment. I’ll be there with a new piece along with old friends like show organizer Adam Saake, Clave Fourie, John Stuart Berger, Aaron Winters and Phil Alstatt, plus new friends like most of the teaching staff at Studio 700. There should be something to satisfy…
