Haven?

This is the other piece I got into “Me Myself and I” at Some Things Looming Gallery in Reading. The opening is Saturday April 12, 1-4 PM, at 526 Washington St., Reading, PA 19601. Since the concept of the self portrait was a broad one, I submitted this work. I worked in the steel industry for a number of years, and can identify with the feeling of a house dwarfed by the mill. The city’s downtown as distant as Oz.

In the Morning I am So Tall

I was thrilled to learn I got two pieces in a show at Somethings Looming Gallery in Reading. The show, Me Myself and I opens April 12. Naturally with a title like that, they were looking for self portraits. But I balked – the closest I came was one called “In the Morning I am So Tall.” That showed my shadow!!

The other that was accepted is a portrait of my “interior life” at least when I lived in Pittsburgh. It is called “Haven?” I worked many years in the steel industry, and can identify with the feeling that the factory takes over your life. The bits of downtown that show look as far away and unattainable as Oz.

Edge of Morning

I just got this piece into an exhibit (Edge-to-Edge) of the Fiberarts Guild of Pittsburgh. It is called Edge of Morning, and is small, just 12 x 12 x 1.5. As I have been doing, it is inspired by walking the aging industrial streets of Pittsburgh, and picking up found objects as I go. The focal point is that line created by the rooflines as they march down the block.
The show opens Friday Feb. 21 at Borelli-Edwards Gallery, 3583 Butler Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15201 from 5-8 PM. See ya there!
