The Calm Before

It is just over a week until we unveil the new TBD show, and I have not reached the "stressed" moment yet. Hooray! While I am sure that will change in the coming days, I take this calm with arms wide open.
The process of installation is much like that of painting itself. It is the organization of creating an environment that entices the viewer to continue. To follow a pace and complete a journey you have mapped out for the viewer's amusement. Everyone takes that journey through a gallery differently. Some never start at the first piece upon entering a the doors. Some ignore the piece directly to the right, while others are blind to the fourth sculpture above "that one painting." So maybe that's the true challenge: keeping the viewer's attention even when they start in the middle. Grabbing their attention enough that if they were to view the ending first, they will want to go back through and start from the beginning.

While you may want to know what to expect from the show I can say the following: The works involved in the show so far seem to convey sense of "comfort."

This Friday I will be releasing the names of the artists involved in the TBD: Artist exhibit.
Thank you for all of your support, and per usual any question please direct them to:
