Installation at the Wiseman Gallery

Last week I took a drive out to Grants Pass, Oregon to install You, Me, and the Rest of the World.

I can't believe this project has come full circle. It feels so great to have the work out in the world in the very way I want it to be out in the world.

Installation art is a labor of love. It always comes with its challenges because every gallery space is different. But, in the end, it's always worth it. I'm so excited to hear reactions from viewers of this exhibition.

Wiseman Gallery is beautiful. It is smack dab in the middle of a walkway in a building at the Rogue Community College. I love this gallery because the space could be wasted. It could just be a bunch of white walls. Instead, it gets filled with art every few months. And, for the next two months, it will be filled with my art!

I am lucky to have Katrina Henry as one of my best friends. She, along with her go with any flow daughter, Elsa, came with me on my installation adventure and helped in so many ways. I would not have been able to install the show without them.

Here are a few images during the installation process.

This is the interactive aspect to this art installation. Gallery viewers will be asked to add to the "TODAY I ..." chalkboard wall.

I'm headed up to the gallery once again in a few weeks to take more photographs of this art installation. If you're in the Grants Pass, Oregon area from now until August 28, 2014 check out the Wiseman Gallery and take part in this interactive art exhibit!
