Wearable Sculptures by Darin

I have been interested in sustainability and in this case sustaining both the time I get to work on art as well as providing for my family.  So…that being said, here are some wearable sculptures that I have been producing which are cut off sections from the Dry Bones|Bone Boat Sculpture that I produced last month.  This is just a small sampling and also I can custom produce almost any shape required, so let me know what you want.  Pricing will be on a per price basis, and will depend on what type of clasp etc, however the general pricing which includes a basic ball chain length and shipping to the 48 contiguous States (Hawaii and Alaska $4 more) is in the pull down PayPal button at the bottom of this post.

balm Dry Bones Exhibition, curating, sculpture and press

As I mentioned previously, I have been curating a “Flash Space” at 739 Mass Street in Lawrence, KS.  This current show called b.a.l.m. Dry Bones which opened on Friday October, 29th and was going to run until around December, 23rd 2010, however we helped lease the space by coming in and setting up this temporary gallery and bringing in traffic and awareness, so the show ended early.  I haven’t included my work in any of these shows, but I had a piece I really wanted to produce for this show and thankfully was able to accomplish.  We had a very good turn out with around 750-1000 attendees estimated.  We sold a painting of one of the artists as well which was encouraging.

The rathaus, a local art blog has been doing a great job of keeping up on local art news. Click on the logo to see the post for the b.a.l.m. Dry Bones show.  The Rathaus

Rex Hausmann who is an artist and director of the Hausmann Millworks came up to Lawrence with painter Duane Hilburn and they both had work in the balm Dry Bones show.  Rex Hausmann shown below with Ryan LaFerney in front of Hausman’s work and installation.

The first show curated was the b.a.l.m. TRANS•parent TRANS•lucent exhibition that had fabulous review called Seeing Through by Ryan LaFerney in Review Magazine.  The image below is from the opening with Shannon’s painting in the background and our friend Emily and her daughter at the right.

During the hubbub of getting ready for the balm Dry Bones show we were asked along with some other local art collectives to produce a piece for Lawrence Magazine called Collective Creations.  There was a quick little video piece done as well about the theme Love in the Time of Beer Bellies … a Mass. St. Romance.  I have gotten to do a little radio lately for the promotion of the Downtown Lawrence Art Districts Final Friday’s on 1320 AM which has been a fun experience.  If you have a moment take some time to check out some other reviews and press on the balm site.

Keep a look out for my next post about wearable sculptures.
