New work - printing on steel

I'm printing on steel as I prepare for my fall shows. This is one of my new works, which is a highly-magnified image of a crinoid's exoskeleton on sheet metal.

Installation view of WVSA exhibit:

My first show is Strata Displaced, a solo show partly funded by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (DCCAH), an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. Please join me at the opening on September 17, 2009, at the ARTiculate Gallery in Washington, DC, from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm.

The DCCAH grant will help bring this new body of work to a wider audience. The pieces also incorporate some of the ideas I started to develop at last July's residency at Rocky Mountain Recycling, a metal scrap yard in Denver. The show runs until September 25 and 30% of all sales will support WVSA, a non-profit that provides arts-infused programs to children and adults.
