“The square show offered me an opportunity to really question traditional approaches to painting and to experiment with new ones.

I see the three works on canvas as studies for larger pieces, and therefore representing the beginning of a new and uniquely engaging series. In some ways this marks a departure from old approaches but in many ways they are a testament to the exploration and experimentation that defined earlier works.

I am very happy to have been invited to participate in this show and I invite you to take a look at the three works I’ve created especially for the square show.”

This is what Gallery Z has to say about the Show “”The Square Show”, a popular new type of gallery exhibition style from across the pond is about to pop up at Gallery Z!

This upcoming trend in Europe has spiked our interest, and we cannot wait to see how our artists and gallery goers react to this style of showing art.

As always, we have a very diverse collection of artists, but this time they all have the same guidelines. Each artist that has chosen to participate in this show has been given three canvases. One is 12x12in, one is 16x16in, and one is 20x20in. Each of the artists’ three canvases reflects their styles and chosen mediums. One of the most exciting details of this show is that the price points are very fair; $250(small), $450(medium), and $650(large). “

Exhibits at Gallery Z

 

One of my resolutions for 2013 is to “make more art” and another is to increase community involvement in the art making process so that through involvement with art people will connect more and share more about their life experiences. Families become closer; and friends, both old and new, grow closer as they share their experiences. And as a result the history of community will be preserved, not just in books, films and other media, but also in people’s hearts and minds.

Three works of a new major community involvement project called “From Where We Come” are now showing at Gallery Z in Providence, Rhode Island. Displayed in Gallery Z’s Special Collections, the works are part of the series of sewn and framed figures decorated with beads, coins, nails, pins, hair and fabric.

Click on any of the thumbnails below to see a full size picture and treat yourself to a visit to the gallery to see the three works in person where you will be able to more easily see and appreciate the ethereal, spiritual, and intriguing physical qualities of the works which are meant to reflect the improvisational element of African-American life and lifestyles.
