fresh spaces in braddock
For the past 4 months or so I have been meeting with a group of artists in discussion lead by my former instructor Maura Doern Danko. Typically our discussions were about observing the broad spectrum of art through the ages and attempting to overlap ideas rooted in extracting meaning. The meeting have come to a head and we are embarking on a show based in Braddock, PA at a place called Unsmoke Systems. On Monday Andre, Nick and I traveled up to Braddock to check out the space, meet with the gallery managers, and discuss possibilities for the interior. Upon inspection of this amazing gallery I have a strong desire to do some on-site painting along with some installations utilizing the space's unique architectural and accidental features. I can't wait to coop up in that building in December and really explore those walls. The show will be in January and I believe it will run for the entire month. As always I will keep everyone updated with plenty of photographs when I get the time.
