Two of the four exhibitions I'm in are opening this weekend. Tonight, the Greenville Museum of Art Jurried Exhibition will open with a reception from 5:30-7. I got a brief sneak peak when I went to pick up my rejected piece and it looks like a great show, representing many different media by many talented locals.
If you're close to Catskill NY, check out the Masters on Main Round 3 opening tomorrow afternoon. It starts at 4pm, and will be followed with a booty shaking party at a local hang out, with live music by the resident didgeridoo player. There will be 12 installations, including my own. I really wish I could go to this opening, not only to see the awesome work, but because it sounds like such a fun time. Here's an except from the press release:
"With a focus on site specific sculptures, exhibitors’ projects include a fiber installation addressing themes of chance, order, and chaos by Eunjeong Lee from the SUNY New Paltz MFA program; an atmospheric sculptural video installation work by Seo Jo from New York University’s MFA program; an interactive mini-opera by San Francisco Art Institute’s Brad Messenger; a site specific installation from University of Massachusetts Amherst MFA candidate Ariel Lavery creating work based on the recent flooding from Tropical Storm Irene; an apocalyptic photography series by Matthew Cetta and mysterious composite portraits by Justin Bitely both from School of Visual Arts BFA Photography program; a series of exhibitions by 2011 summer residents of the Byrdcliffe Art Colony featuring work in
ceramics, sculpture, painting, and installation; one-night-only sculptural installations responding to the town’s Main Street created by collaborative groups from the SUNY New Paltz MFA and BFA programs; one-of-a-kind necklaces and broaches made from rocks, gold leaf and silk thread, both wearable and conceptual by East Carolina University’s Liz Steiner; and Kathleen Faught’s photographic explorations of meditative waterscapes."
If you can't make it to either of these openings, I hope you venture out to see the art in your area! Happy weekend!
