For those of you NOT out in Sacramento, this is the image that's in the big 24 x 24" light box - "Classic Power with Man and Birdcage".   I shot a photo of it before I sent it off to Lumens.

Back in the Saddle

The strangest thing has happened - my blog just disappeared from cyberspace last week!  Now it's back with no explanation or reasons or anything.  I wonder if it had anything to do with blogger changing it's look over the past two weeks. 

I'm finishing up work on the lightboxes getting ready to ship them to Sacramento, where they will be on display at Lumens Gallery thanks to the good folks at the Center for Contemporary Art Sacramento and the marvelous intern Diana Bowers who will be installing the show.

Also looking forward to getting together with good friends and family, now that my brother and his wife are in town now along with my niece Sara. 

One of the light boxes I'll be exhibiting is part of my motel series that I created for the 2009 Greeting from NadaDada Motel show at the Barrick Museum in Las Vegas.

Occupied October

Classical Power 1

Not that September was not busy, getting work ready for the Windows show at the E Street Gallery in Sacramento.  But I knew I had to hustle as I needed to get back to work on the art for the Lumens show in November so I could ship it slow train and have it not cost a fortune.  This is one of the big concerns about showing work cross country like this - getting it there.  One always hopes that there will be enough sales to more than cover it, but any chance I get to ship long before the due date I will.

The image above is the newest edition to the Power Series based on photos taken here and in a special photo shoot at my friend George Streng's studio in Woodland - Photogenics.  What will be interesting about the show at Lumens is that I'll be exhibiting one of the very first pieces I made for the Barrick Museum show in Las Vegas along with new work like the piece above.

As soon as the work gets printed and I can put it into the light boxes, off it goes to Sacramento and on I go to two other projects I have in the hamper, both commissions.  In between all this, we have 3 sets of company coming to "peep the leaves".  Our friends from PA, Bob and June are here now.  I'm glad they're making dinner tonight.  A day after they leave, my sister comes to town for 5 days and then we have another day off and then Cherie Hacker, my artist friend arrives for a few days.  Then about a week and a half later, I'm off for 8 days in Sacto for the closing of one show and the opening of another!
