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.

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.

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.

With thankfulness… Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

I am going to have a piece shown in a local show called “clouds are easy to love” as well as a piece shannon produced on site, as i was tacking mine to the ceiling. the concept is to have the interpretation of clouds on the ceiling as the other artists work about clouds is shown in the rest of the space. A few people involved in b.a.l.m. are going to have work shown on the ceiling at the Alley Gallery a Percolator Project during the new show.

KT, (who ran the Lawrence Social Service League Store when Brian and I started Cheeseball Clothing Company and was instrumental in providing our recycled pants for the TRI-COLORED PASTA’s, TWO TONES with RACING STRIPES, and was a great encouragement) is going to have the rooftop space for her cloud installation.
