Cascadia // Collar Works Gallery, Troy, NY // Opening May 31st
Cascadia explores the current artistic climate of the Pacific Northwest, specifically: Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. A geographic area that has several times proposed to become its own independent nation, this North American stretch has always stood uniquely against its adjacent states and provinces. Captivating with its distinctly coastal landscape that contain natural wonders such as sea stacks, volcanoes and rain forests, it is easy to see how folklore of mythological creatures such as the Sasquatch dwell in its territories.
Exhibition Dates: Friday May 31st, 2013 - Friday June 21st, 2013
Opening Reception: Friday May 31st, 2013 from 5 to 9 pm

Wheaton Biennial: Drawing Out of Bounds // Beard & Weil Galleries, Norton, MA // February 27th - April 13, 2013
Judith Tannenbaum selected 54 artists for this years Biennial from nearly 700 hundred entries. The 2013 Wheaton Biennial sought work that pushes the boundaries of drawing into territories associated with other artistic practices, including sculpture, film, sound, and more. Drawings that employ the traditional tools of pen, pencil, and paper were chosen based on critical reflection of the medium and/or a fresh use of the materials.

Social Interventions // Garage 4141, San Diego, CA // April 6, 2013 - TBA
In contrast to this classification (art) the term social sculpture (Joseph Beuys) itself already contains the idea that the different spheres are mingled, as they have common denominators. Social Interventions looks at artists using video/performace that reflect situational work in respect of détournement.
