"The utilitarian device known as a “String Holder” has been around since the invention of string, yarn and hemp dating back centuries. Over time, string holders evolved into bizarre folk art objects that abandoned the principle of “form follows function” in favor of novel caricatures and strange contraptions that have no practical purpose – i.e. art.” I am going to have a couple of my sculptures in this show curated by Dean Nimmer & Bruce Fowler. The exhibit promises to be inventive, surreal, and FUN, so you know the opening is going to be a great party!
What a great turn out at yesterday's reception! Plus an impromptu artist's talk. Many thanks to the students, staff, faculty and administration at STCC for this opportunity to share my work. My show will remain on view until Oct. 6th Amy H. Carberry Fine Arts Gallery Springfifeld Technical Community College
Thanks to everyone who came out to see our group show at the Sprinkler Factory! We all had such a great time from opening till closing. It all came down last Sunday night. Now I am just weeks away from installing my solo show at Oxbow. I will keep you posted on my progress. There will be a reception on July 14, if you want to mark the date now!
Gearing up to install this show! I am super excited because I adore this space and love these artists. It is always an exciting day when we all show up, nerves tingling, with our current works, ready to make magic happen.
I will be showing (have I mentioned this already?) my two largest paintings, ever.
May the gods of all things level and square be with me (not my natural forte) as I attempt to hang a nine panel painting.
Please come join us for our opening celebration on Saturday, May 13, 2017 6-9 p.m.
I want to thanks the brave folks. new friends and old, who braved the cold and snow to come to my opening last Friday.
It was great to be able to talk with everyone and hear their thoughts on this project.
Next Saturday, February 18th from 4-6 p.m. we will host a public discussion on this series, I will read some passages from the found journal, and several Anchor House poets will share their words as well.
Now, if only the gods of weather will cooperate!
Anchor House of Artists, 518 Pleasant St., Northampton, MA
Gallery Hours: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday 1-6 p.m.
Gallery Director, Michael Tillyer, persuaded me to have the found journal pages on display along with the art. I have always been protective of them, so I initially felt uncomfortable, but now I see how powerful it is to include them.
Please come join us at the opening on Friday night Northampton’s Arts Night Out
