In one week I will be in Peoria, Illinois installing a solo show at Backspace Gallery. I will be making one large site specific installation using materials that my parents have been collecting for me. I will also be showing some brand new paintings and sculptures. I am so excited about this show and to be back in my homeland. The night before the opening, I will be giving an artist talk at Knox College (Galesburg, IL) where I will be talking about the progression of my work and practice since graduating Knox in 2008. The artist talk will be on Thursday Nov. 1st at 5pm in the Round Room at CFA and the opening of my show will be Friday Nov. 2nd from 5 to 9pm in Peoria. I will post images on the blog next week of the installation progress!
