The BEST news!! 🙂 Our group show Chapter 237 at Index Art Cnter received a FEATURE in the front of the NJ Star-Ledger newspaper. I was honored to be one of 8 artists selected to create an installation at Index Art Space for the show. I created a large painting on several windows, then projected my film Burning In Water, Drowning In Flame http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ER36-GJjBeU onto the painted windows. It was an honor to be included. Thanks to writer Dan Bischoff for covering the exhibition, which was the first in the non-profit’s newest location, following a fire in their previous location. The opening was a huge success, and we were able to help raise money to get the wonderful space and all connected with it back on their feet.
