Coming in September...

This coming fall is already shaping up to be a very busy and exciting one. I am working on brand new pieces that will be shown in some very dynamic exhibitions - including a wonderful group show organized by the very energetic Sophia Louisa Lee of Sophia Louisa Projects:

September 11 - November 6, 2010
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 11, 6:00–9:00 pm

Sophia Louisa Projects
5412 Wilshire Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90036
Gallery hours: Thursday-Saturday, 12-5 pm

39NOW unites thirty-nine exceptional artists, from the emerging to the well-established, living in and around Los Angeles. Each has been asked to create a new and individual piece expressly for this show. Curated by Sophia Louisa Lee, the exhibition is inspired in part by Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party, which included the same number of artists. 39NOW contemplates how “now” is different than “then,” how art embraces the evolution of technology and how it survives the impact of the economy. Ultimately, this exhibition explores a compelling segment of the explosive Los Angeles contemporary art scene.

Lee reached out to artists she knew and to those she wanted to know: Abbey Dubin, Alexandra Grant, Andrea Bowers, Anne Martens, Carol Powell, Daena Title, Fumiko Amano, Gina Stepaniuk, Glynnis Reed, Gul Cagin, Heather Cantrell, Jennifer Celio, Joyce Aiken, Katy Unger, Kim Abeles, Kimber Berry, Kristina Faragher, Lacey Terrell, Leigh Salgado, Leora Lutz, Lita Albuquerque, Marnie Weber, Marika Krissman Tsircou, Mary Heebner, Nancy Braver, Nancy Buchanan, Nikki Nash, Paige Wery, Patssi Valdez, Rebecca Lowry, Rebecca Niederlander, Sandy Rodriguez, Simone Gad, Snezana Petrovic, Sophia Allison, Tulsa Kinney, Vivian Flynn, YaYa Chou, and Yun Bai.

A series of programming will be held in conjunction with 39NOW, including an open forum discussion on Saturday, October 16th at 7:00 pm during the Miracle Mile Art Walk, scheduled performance art, and panel discussions. For more information, please contact Sophia Louisa Lee at 310.773.1460, or visit

Sophia Louisa Lee opened Sophia Louisa Projects in October 2009 on a “temporarily permanent” basis, in association with Phantom Galleries LA (PGLA) which places temporary art installations in vacant storefront windows throughout Los Angeles County. PGLA transforms un-utilized space into 24/7 public art galleries.

I am working on a new sculpture for this show and will post images as the work develops!
