2017

  • Freedom From Fear/The Yellow Bowl Project, MCLA Gallery 51, North Adams, MA - The photographs depict this journey of 120 tea bowls along with the artist Setsuko Winchester to the remote and still rural reaches of the American West. At each site the bowls are arranged in conversation with the landscape. Framed to emphasize the simple structures, fenced areas, and desolation, each bowl then becomes a yellow beacon. Together these groupings, snaking along gravel roads or forming nested rectangles, are placed to reinforce the separation and unity inherent to this conversation. And there is a haunted beauty to these images. Viewing the series as a whole we see the conversation occurring between artist and place, between histories. Traveling through the exhibition one sees reproduced bowls in small groups placed alongside these images which travel from the not so distant past to the present, as further work in the series brings the bowls into the modern day – with displays at monumental places including the U.S. Supreme Court and the FDR Presidential Library & Museum.

2016

  •  Co-curator, everything i never told you; a secret to beautiful to keep, MCLA Gallery 51, North Adams, MA   An interdisciplinary exhibition of new work exploring the intersectionalities common to the artistic practices of two artists developed over an almost 15 year long friendship. Exploring themes of vulnerability, emotional aesthetic, metaphor, absurdist humor, and personal history. Including work in a variety of media including - installation, drawing, painting,printmaking and mixed media work.
  • Polyvalent Spaces - Donna Cleary and Kathline Carr, exPRESS Gallery, North Adams, MA                                                          The dialectical relationship between art and inhabited space, between embodied and embedded knowledge, and the tension between the familiar and the strange are all prevalent in the work included in this exhibition. Polyvalent Spaces grounds this relational exploration into the place where it was created - North Adams, MA - but invites a multiplicity of associations as you weave together the threads of the exhibition.
