"The Hushed Beat of a Dark Forest Wing", 12 x 9in, graphite and colored pencil on Bristol
I was recently asked by the artists-extraordinaire-power-couple, Lauren Levato Coyne and Rory Coyne, to show a drawing at their gallery space, Sidetracked Studio, in the small-works invitational entitled, "Swarm". I was thrilled because not only am I a fan of their art, I am a fan of what they are doing at Sidetracked. And, I was to find that I will be hanging in great company, surrounded by some pretty spectacular works by some really fantastic artists!
Also, it didn't hurt that I was already in the sketching phase of a drawing that I thought would work well. Synchronicity!
Sidetracked Studio is proud to present “Swarm," a small works exhibition. The word can be defined in different ways - from an act of aggression/protection to simply a group of animals - and we thought it high time to mount our own swarm via artists interpreting the theme. This exhibit is a wonderful spectacle of highly crafted works that are mostly no larger than fifteen inches, and an installation made of smaller components by the artists to make one collaborative piece, or swarm.
Works by: Lauren Levato Coyne, Rory Coyne Jason McPhillips, Erin Gergen Halls, Anthony Cramer, Gail Potocki, John Walker, Erich J. Moffatt, Victoria Fuller, Renee McGinnis, Maike van Wijk, and Stephanie Inagaki.
OPENING RECEPTION Sat., June 4, 6 – 9 p.m; exhibition continues through July 2, 2016
Please check out the show online, if you cannot make it to the exhibition. Works are already selling, and they are really something to see!
