If you’re in the NYC area…

I will have 6 pieces hanging in this show in Woodstock, NY -May 4- June 17. The show is an interesting collection of work by myself and five other artists working in a variety of media who all are somehow inspired by microscopic imagery. Please come if you’re nearby and let me know what you thought of the show!

Here is the press release with more info:

The Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild is pleased to announce the upcoming exhibition, Micromorphic, scheduled to be shown at the Kleinert / James Center for the Arts, 36 Tinker Street, Woodstock, May 4, 2012 through June 17, 2012. An opening reception will be held at the Kleinert on Saturday, May 5 – 4 to 6 pm.

Laura Gurton of Woodstock, curator of the all female artist show, paints biomorphic shapes that are reminiscent of life on a molecular level.  Gurton began to seek out other artists, “whose work explores similar shapes and subject matter, wondering what it is that draws them to use and create biomorphic forms.”  Having worked with many mediums and techniques, Gurton is also drawn to investigating how each artist uses her various materials to represent the meeting of art and science in a unique way.  The representation of nature’s beauty in its primary elements can be seen in paint, fabric, digital manipulations, recycled materials, and welded steel.

Participants in the exhibition, which includes Gurton, are: Jen Bradford a painter from Beacon, NY; Jodi Colella, a sculptor from Somerville, MA; Constance Jacobson, a painter and printmaker from Boston, MA; Karen Kamenetzky, a fabric artist from Brattleboro, VT; and Susan Spencer Crowe, a sculptor from Kingston, NY.

Laura Gurton explains, “For each of us, the finished pieces are our own personal statements about our relationships to our materials, our processes and to what we find beautiful and important.  The works of these artists will stir the soul and make us yearn to touch and be part of their work.”
