Terrain Biennial 2021
It's been great participating in the Terrain Biennial this year! If you're in Louisville, stop by 505 W. Ormsby to see my installation on the front porch of the Speed Mansion.
My work "American Shadows" will be part of the online exhibition 'Decahedron,' organized by curator Jenny Lam to celebrate ten years of wonderfully surprising shows. Participating in Jenny Lam's curatorial project 'Lexicon' back in 2016 was very exciting- it was shown at Zhou B Art Center in Chicago, and visitors were welcomed to write their thoughts about the work on post its and put the sticky notes up and around the artwork. See the current show in the online gallery here: https://www.artistsonthelam.com/decahedron
