The Opening Reception for "The Shape of Things"

Earlier tonight, my boys and I went to the opening reception for "The Shape of Things:" an international juried exhibition at the Praxis Photo Arts Center. I have a piece in that exhibition that can be seen in the last 2 photos here:

The last time I was there, there was talk of developing this space as an
extended exhibition space, but this was the first I saw it used. Nicely done!

The exhibition is up through October 2nd if you want to see it for yourself.

One Week Down at the U!

My first classes in the University of Minnesota's "College of Design" went well this past week! I taught in the Art Department on the Minneapolis campus from 2005-2011, and now I have a class on the St. Paul campus. My classroom has a ton of whiteboard space and 21 (yes, I counted) whiteboard markers:

Happy to be back at the U! (Even if it might just be for a semester.)

Two Photographs in "Out Of The Frame" at the Glasgow Gallery of Photography

I'm happy to share that I have 2 pieces at the Glasgow Gallery of Photography in Scotland in their "Out of the Frame" exhibition. The website for the show is a play on using the frame:

Not a mistake.

Here are my 2 images as they appear on their website:

"Labor Camp" at MIA

Last month, I took my boys to the MIA, and I was excited to see the Piotr Szyhalski exhibition "Labor Camp Report." I've admired Szyhalski's work for nearly 20 years, and we were teaching at MCAD at the same time 15 years ago or so.

I watched him create this series on Instagram. Here's a bit about it from the MIA website:

On March 24, 2020, Minneapolis-based artist Piotr Szyhalski embarked on a daily drawing practice responding to the COVID-19 pandemic as it unfolded in real time. What began as a way for the artist to share observations of life in lockdown and the pain caused by the pandemic quickly became a daily exercise of chronicling his thoughts and feelings and reconciling them with the changes being wrought in the world.

COVID-19: Labor Camp Report consists of 225 drawings created over eight months that fall under Szyhalski’s ongoing artistic framework, Labor Camp. New drawings were posted daily on Instagram, serving as a witness to the unfolding crisis and a record of time, both labored and lost.

Here's what my boys and I saw last month:

Entering the space was overwhelming.

You can see more of his pieces on the MIA website, and check out the exhibition before September 19.
