My First Video.
As a way to promote “40 Under 40,” the Renwick Gallery asked each of the participating artists to create a 1 minute video about their work and how they felt about being included in the upcoming show.
Since I am a sculptor and not a filmmaker I had the opportunity to work with some one who is, Tobin Herringshaw. Through his vision and willingness to film over 3 and a half hours of continuous carving, we were able to give a sense of the actual process behind some of my carved pieces. It only took speeding me up over 10 thousand times.
The “40 Under 40” show opens Friday, July 20th at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in downtown Washington, D.C. A gallery talk will be held at 12:00 p.m. by the curator Nicholas Bell and a “meet the artists” and book signing will follow.
Everyone is welcome to this event, so if you are in the area, please feel free to come by. The show will be up until February 2013.
