I have so much to tell you about. But first, It is Open Studio in Abiquiu, NM October 7 and 8. I am flying back from Brooklyn to participate. Stonetrigger Press will be open, to the public with a huge sale on prints and drawings.
I will also have loads of one of a kind journals, but it is only for these two days. For more about the AST, maps, times and artists, you can check the website by clicking here. There are 31 stops but multiple artists at each stop. Make sure to come to stop 4!
The Studio Tour is from 10am to 5pm. My studio is at 5 Trigger Drive. From 84, take NM554 (The El Rito Road) 1/2 mile, turn right on CR 142, drive 1 mile to Trigger Drive. It is on your left. There will be signs!
I have two exhibitions happening simultaneously. On September 10th, the exhibition, “Call and Response” Wave Hill, Bronx, NY opened. Wave Hill’s curatorial team invited artists who have shown in the Sunroom over the last ten years to return and present new responses, encompassing an exhilarating reexamination of the site, 50 artists, including myself, created work for the show. The exhibition runs through December 3 and it is amazing!
My work is installed in Wave Hill’s Sunroom Gallery with it’s beautiful arched windows. and incredible light. The piece is hand cast flax pots, filed with laser cut plants and tiny rocks hung to form a 7 x 7 grid of 49 pots. This work is my reflection of the tiny plants in Wave Hill’s Alpine House.
Next the Moth Migration Project website went live! The MMP is an on-going multi-venue international project that engages communities in both science and art through the crowd-sourcing of handmade paper moths. In the first 6 months I collected, almost 15,000 moths from 24 countries.
The premier exhibition is currently on view at 516Arts in Albuquerque, NM. The exhibition opened August 19, 2017 and will run through Nov 11, 2017. This exhibition shows close to 4,000 of the 15,000 moths collected.
This project will continue. I have a commitment letter from the Bundaberg Regional Galleries, Bundaberg, Australia to show the project April to June 2019. This exhibition will focus primary on Australian moths, so I highly encourage all Australian’s of all ages and profession, you do not need to be an artist, to check the instructions and send moths to the project.

In addition I have proposals to two Canadian Art Centers and US Galleries. It does not matter where you live, I really want to hear from you. Please consider being a part of this amazing international group. We also have a FB group, click here for the link.
After Open Studio I will get to work on my on a project for next summer. I was selected a 2018 artist for the Chilkoot Trail Artist Residency Program by Parks Canada, US Parks Service and The Yukon Arts Center for my project “Trail Magic.” “Trail Magic” engaged other backpackers along the trail with a barters system I devised based on hand printed cards of hiking equipment. I get to spend time backpacking and making art in both Alaska and British Columbia. I may never come back to Brooklyn.
It is an extraordinary fall with lots of exhibitions, open studio, and projects underway for the next two years. I hope you can join me along the way.
