REWIND is OPEN - NEW YEAR - Gratitude

Dear Friends,
 
Hope all are well.
 
I’m really glad to start a new year. Many would agree there were several disturbing events that occurred in 2014. 2015 may give us additional opportunities to have the difficult conversations about the “elephants” that are increasing in size.
 
I really appreciated your support this past year—this goes out especially to those who attended and supported the Souper Fundraiser. I’m incredibly grateful for the support from the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, Maryland Institute College of Art, Creative Capital, Creative Alliance, and more recently from the MAP Fund.
 
I’m excited to announce that next week my new show REWIND opens in Baltimore at Creative Alliance where I’m also a resident artist. This show will include work from past years as well as a new large-scale installation, along with video, sculpture, animation, and new music composition. This new work is challenging me, taking me out of my own comfort zone. In addition to support from the organizations listed above, support for the creation of early work was also provided by Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, 4Culture, Conductive Garboil, and Artist Trust in Washington state.
 
During the course of the show there will be various opportunities for community interaction and engagement, including an improvisational cello recital during the Resident Open House on February 21, a conversation with the community led by MacArthur Award recipient Liz Lerman on February 21, yoga and guided meditation on February 14 and 28, and an Artist Talk on February 28.
 
Over the next several months, I have events in Baltimore and Seattle. Events are listed below. Attached is a press release with more specific details about REWIND.
Again, I’m grateful for all of your support.
 
Thank you, and Happy New Year!
 
Paul
