In the Atrium Gallery at the Galleries at Takoma Park, 21 of my Celestial Bodies and all four Pseudomorphs will be on display until July 5. The show is called “STEAM…when science intersects art.” STEAM refers to “Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics.” In a review in the Washington Post of the show “Beyond Layers” at Hillyer Artspace, Mark Jenkins called the Celestial Bodies “striking” and continues: “Whether they’re glimpses of worlds too vast or too tiny for human apprehension, these ‘Celestial Bodies’ fascinate.” I plan to finish all 26 in the series soon and I am looking for a good place to show the complete series. Until then, you can see what I have so far at 7500 Maple Ave, Takoma Park, MD. You can also check out some pictures here on this website. All are for sale (to order) at my public studio, Black Lab, on the Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market, 716 Monroe Street NE, Studio 16, Washington DC. They are $350, plus tax, each with a 10% discount for four or more. You can also email me here to place an order and pay via Paypal. Let me know what you think!
