Kickstarter Update #4: 27%! Creeping Up!

Wow, this is a wild ride and a ton of work. I really, truly appreciate all of your support! It is what is keeping me going right now. It’s a marathon…keep on running… Well it feels like it, but really 25 days is going to be over in a snap. So we are currently creeping up at 27% with 14 days remaining!

I am still hopeful that we can hit 40% by March 25th! The trajectory is a little low for that right now, so any additional help would be a great boost! (Read more here…)

Kickstarter Update #3: First Goal $1,000/20%!

THANK YOU!


With your pledges we have hit the first goal –

$1,000 and 20%!

I am very grateful for your encouragement, support, sharing this with your
friends, family and creative/art lovers.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

WE ARE ON OUR WAY to the $5,000 goal. Remember, if we don’t hit that goal in 17 days,
this project will not get funded.
I can tell you don’t want that…I don’t want that either!

As you know we are all busy, if you would be willing to follow up on that email
you sent, facebook post, tweet, or text, phone call, whatever, I think we can really
help this project get wings! If we get enough traffic and pledges to the site, it will
catch the attention of the Kickstarter Staff again and this will help this project
even more!

If you have thoughts about how I could make this Kickstarter project even better?
…please let me know. If there are specific rewards that you feel would help make this happen,
please let me know, I am game! Remember you can always add to your pledge at any time
till April 7th.
How about a pack of six of the Bear Heart thank you cards (shown below)
by adding $20 to your pledge? The front of the card has Bear Heart image on the front, is blank inside,
and has information about the artist and the artwork on the back.

Bear Heart Greeting Card

I think our NEXT GOAL should be DOUBLING this $1,000 to $2,000!
What do you think? Can we do this in 4 days? This would get us back on track
for the $200 a day that is needed to fund this project in time. I am nervous, but
excited too. If these projects were easy EVERYONE would be doing them!
I have put myself out there and you all have been such a great support!
THANK YOU AGAIN!

Brooklyn Solo Exhibition April 13-26th, 2012

I have a solo exhibition April 13-26th, 2012 at the Soapbox Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. I am very excited about this project.

As an artist and arts advocate my wife and I help produce and curate art exhibitions, provide opportunities and encourage artists through b.a.l.m. | beauty, art and life movement. I was offered a personal solo art show at an alternative gallery space in Brooklyn, NY from April 13-26, 2012. The space is all that is provided, and the artist acts as the janitor, gallerist, host and receptionist. To be able to produce the large conceptual based installation and object artwork that I make, as well as be in New York for 2-3 weeks during the exhibition, I am looking to raise funds to help make this project a reality. If more funds are raised than required for the project, any extra will go to producing and printing catalogs of the exhibit. I am hoping to pre-sell work for the exhibition. Below are some conceptual images and renderings that show what I am producing. If you are interested, or know of someone who would be interested in this work, please contact me to discuss. Please help me get out the word about this project! Thank you!

Bear Heart

A naturally peaceful bear protrudes from the wall with arms extended in a kind gesture, paws touching.
The negative shape of the arms creates a simple but powerful message, and encourages the viewer to wrestle with larger issues of life.

Darin M. White, Overflow, Reclaimed wood, seeds, 2012

Overflow conjures thoughts of farmland, barns and brimming silos. Seeds are important and are traded as a
commodity. Cycles of life happen whether we understand the process or choose to bury our head. Our land,
resources and life are laid out in front of us, one moment at a time. What will we do with what we are given?

Darin M. White, Appropriate Attire: Burlap and Earth, Transfer print on copper, 2012

A men’s suit made from the same material to hold potatoes or coffee is buried to its knees in soil. Out of the
earth emerges a single seedling. Appropriate Attire: Burlap and Earth wrestles with issues of power and
humility, struggle, toil, life cycle, memento mori, forward movement and growth.

Darin M. White, Appropriate Attire: Ashes and Burlap, Transfer print on copper, 2012

Appropriate Attire:Burlap and Ashes

A burlap sack becomes a women’s dress that either is rising out of or sinking into ashes which create the
outline. From the ashes, new growth begins to form. In nature when fire burns the forest decimating it,
eventually out of this process emerges life and the chance to begin again.

Once the Kickstarter project is launched I will post a link so you can check it out!
