Hi Folks! It's been a very busy Spring so far. I have been hard at work planning and producing two upcoming exhibitions. The first exhibition is this month at the Grimsby Public Art Gallery in Grimsby, ON. This exhibition involves the largest steel bead sculpture I have produced to date. I am trying to scale up my practice to be truly architectural, and this will be the closest it has come. I will keep you updated on the opening.
In September 2023 I will be part of an exhibition at the Canadian Clay and Glass Museum in Waterloo, ON. This will be the first exhibition exclusively on beadwork in the institution’s 30-year history! The show will include multiple large-scale steel beaded sculptures, including one installed outdoors in front of the museum. The exhibition will also include my first sculpture using blown glass beads made by Tara Marsh. I am very excited about that.
All of these works have been made possible by the generous support of grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Waterloo Region Arts Fund.
My sculpture, Value Shift (inflection points), that has been at Kitchener City Hall in the Rotunda since February is making its way home. A huge shoutout to the folks at Kitchener City Hall for their support and for hosting this work. It has been a pleasure to work with you.
On May 12th, I will be featured in the May issue of Globe and Mail Style Advisor, in the opening Omnibus section. Keep an eye out for that!
