Update on Kickstarter project launch

I recently announced that I was approved for a Kickstarter project for my debut solo exhibition in New York.

Here are some updates in regards to launching the Kickstarter. I am adding images that I will use in the
project launch. Please stay tuned for the actual launch and details! Thank you!

Here are some highlights of rewards for funding this Kickstarter project…

Corn Seed Packets

As part of the Overflow site specific installation, there will be empty seed packets printed on the front with
image of the work and the back will have information about the work the exhibition and sponsor. Below is
concept images of the front and back of seed packet. I foresee the empty seed packets being mailed out as
postcards announcing the exhibition, and inviting the viewer to come see the show and take a few seeds.
This will also be a reward for pledging on Kickstarter.

These seed packets will also be at the gallery and available to use to pick up a few seeds from the exhibition.

Bear Heart T-Shirt

I have had requests to make T-Shirts of my work in the past, but never had the right opportunity. My brother
and I used to own a clothing company, and screened many shirts in my day! The Winged Wonder was one
of my designs. I should dig one up sometime and show you. hmmm

Darin M. White, Concept image for Bear Heart Sketch T-Shirt

I surveyed a few people and they seem to think that a simplified version of the actual Bear Heart
concept image was preferred to the simple line drawing above. Here is what it will probably look
like.

Here is what the Bear Heart will look like on a t-shirt. Most likely soft ringspun, per Lisa Lala’s request.
They will come in a variety of colors. It is a fun grab bag.

Exhibition Catalog

I have been waiting for a while to print a catalog of my work, and now it is time!
This catalog will most likely be a softcover, saddle stitched, unless I go beyond funding a way!
Below is my concept image.

Pencil Drawings

Below are a couple of pencil drawings of the Appropriate Attire works. I am thinking about including a print
of these for one of the rewards.

Change Forward Conceptual Rendering

There are a number of renderings I am going to offer as various sizes and levels of prints. Here is one…

Surprise Quick Sketch

One of the rewards I am going to offer is a quick sketch of whatever is
on my mind at the moment (I know scary thought), but hopefully interesting.
It might be a cartoon, or naturalistic sketch, stylized, etc. Surprise!

Arrow Antler T-Shirt or Sketch

Below is another ink drawing that I am considering offering as a T-Shirt
or sketch reward. What do you think? It would probably be printed on a random colored shirt.

Overflow Card Concept Image

Another option for cards is the “Bear Heart” image:

Of course my family is putting up with me, with all of the work I am putting into this project

I am so thankful for them! Here is a photo from Fall 2011.

see how fast Claire is growing up!

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!

Booking It To Brooklyn: A Library of Texas Contemporary Art (With Some Friends Who’ve Joined Us Along the Way)

Booking It To Brooklyn:
A Library of Texas Contemporary Art
(With Some Friends Who’ve Joined Us Along the Way)

Curated by Darin M. White

June 24th-July 8th, 2011

Produced and Directed by Rex Hausmann and Hausmann Millworks
operating in conjunction with
CENTRAL BOOKING Art Space
111 Front Street
Gallery 210
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Closing reception: July 7th, 2011 as part of “First Thursday” art walk
http://www.brooklynartproject.com/page/1st-thursdays-dumbo-galleryA collection of contemporary works from San Antonio, Los Angeles, New York, Kansas City & Philadelphia.
Organized like any good collection: varied tastes, materials & subjects form prose of an odd exotic sort.
Please enjoy the chapters enclosed. Happy reading.
Rex Hausmann
Producer/DirectorIn an exhibition that was curated in around a week, we find a story of Rex Hausmann
of Hausmann Millworks: A Creative Community. The-GO-man, the get-it-done-guy,
the-too-many-irons-in-the-fire-but-making-it-all-work. 1/4 Italian, 1/4 Mexican,
1/2 German and all San Antonian, Hausmann has a new story for everyday
of the week and they are all good. Hausmann Millworks is a 44,000 square foot millwork
manufacturing building in San Antonio Texas, that has been transformed into
“A Creative Community” of artist studios, galleries and provides opportunities and real life,
art and business education to its artists. This exhibition includes mostly San Antonio
artists and tells the story of how they and other friends have come into the conversation
and are now Booking It To Brooklyn. From Marilyn Lanfear and Larry Graeber who’s work
spans five decades, to LA artist Kiel Johnson who is showing in various museums to
Mel Latimer and Casey Ruiz who are just getting their feet wet, the list of artists and
artwork are as varied as America itself. Exhibited in Brooklyn’s Central Booking Art Space
in Dumbo. The show revolves around the galleries theme of art books, prints and works
on paper with some more conceptual notions. Don’t be surprised if this list of artists
changes before the opening, it is par for the course. The show may end up in Tunisia
for all we know…with bells on.
