The Perils have been Postponed!

December 1, 2006Exhibitions

The opening of The Perils of PaMdora has been postponed until next Friday because a big ice storm the size of three states hit yesterday.

Installation Blues (and Pinks)

November 30, 2006Drawings, Exhibitions

Today has been a crazy day! There’s a big snow and ice storm hovering over several states in the Midwest, and everything in our city has come to a standstill as ice rains from the sky, and people are high-tailing it home to hibernate from the weather. It’s put me in a bit of a … Read More

Positronic Neural Net

May 13, 2006Exhibitions, Sculpture

This interactive installation is called Positronic Neural Net by Russ RuBert. The frames are fabricated aluminum filled with fragments of found neon that are wired to motion sensors, so that different segments of neon light up in response to people walking around them.

Museum Installation

April 23, 2006Exhibitions

I couldn’t stand it and had to sneak over to the museum to see Jim and Gregory hanging the Uncommon Threads show. I love these big portable walls that stand in the middle of the main gallery.

“Throw away the box, I’m wearing those red cowboots out of here.” And so I left Dudes Boutique and went directly to a packed house at the Art Quilts at the Sedgwick reception (which wasn’t at the Sedgwick, but at the Philadelphia Arts Alliance). I was actually color-coordinated with my best black suit, red blouse, … Read More
