Show in Sight May 17, 2010

Posted by cbuchanan in Uncategorized.

I’m beginning to breathe a sigh of relief. I’m nearly done with my pieces for the long-awaited WPA show!

In fact, I delivered most of the pieces to Naked Art last weekend. You’ll be able to see them when the show opens on the evening of June 11. The full title is “Signs for Our Time: A Modern Take on the WPA,” and it features WPA-inspired “posters” with current messages created by a plethora of artists–including some who have never shown their work at Naked Art before. I’ll have two posters for sure–and maybe more because I keep thinking of new ones I just have to add–and I have created more than 30 pieces of functional art, ranging from clocks to wearable items. I’m very excited for everyone to see the art for this show, because the artists have outdone themselves. The show will run to June 30, and you’ll see some promos for it soon on Facebook.

Also, the Birmingham Printmakers is hosting its second meeting/print swap on June 2 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Forest Perk Coffee in the Piggly Wiggly shopping center on Clairmont Ave. If you’re a printmaker of any type, I invite you to stop by and meet other printmakers, show your work, and bring extra prints if you’d like to swap. If you’re not a printmaker, feel free to stop by to see the art and learn more about the medium. It’s possible that I might have some big printmaking-related news to share at that meeting. Stay tuned!

Once I’m completely finished with my contributions to the WPA show, I’ll resume regular blogging, and I already have some ideas for posts. Several great Birmingham-centric blogs have popped up while I’ve been absent, and they’re all worthy reads. (I referenced most of them in a previous post.) Be sure to check them out and join the conversations.
