I am very excited to announce a new body of work beautifully framed, presented and up now at the Sawkille Co. Showroom in Rhinebeck, NY. I have admired Jonah Meyer's and Tara DeLisio's work for many years. I first came upon Jonah's work at The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art when Martin Puryear selected him as part of 'Out of the Studio: Hudson Valley Artists 2003'. Needless to say I was blown away and quickly sought out more. What I found was a hive of creativity and inspiration known as Servce Station, Jonah and Tara's original Hudson Valley outpost in Glenford, NY. I was inspired not only by the art, but by the faith they put in their ideas and in each other. In 2010 Jonah and Tara disbanded Servce Station and bravely stepped forward into the future with Sawkille Co. - a reimagined, redefined take on handmade american furniture and goods. I am grateful for their belief and support of my work.
A big thank you to Sue @ the Barking Dog and all the kind folks that came, talked, looked and especially to those that made a purchase. It is very much appreciated and does the heart good to connect with people that connect with the work. Thank You.
I'm excited to announce that I'll be doing a special ‘two-day show’ with friend and fellow artist, Vincent Pidone http://vincentpidone.tumblr.com/.
We’re calling it ’SLOW FIRES/PAPER ROADS’ - and it will take place in High Falls, NY over Columbus Day Weekend, Sat & Sun, Oct 10th & 11th, 9am-4pm each day. We’ll be setting up outside, Market style on the corner of Firehouse Rd (The Barking Dog) doing our very best to grab a bit of thunder from the Main Event in town, Field+Supply http://www.fieldandsupply.com/new-products-1/ (featuring Sawkille Co. YEAH!)
Vincent Pidone is one of my favorite artist’s, local or otherwise. He combines a never-ending curiosity for material and process with just the right amount of ‘let's see what happens’ and produces work of great beauty, invention and subtlety. Needless to say I’m a big fan and highly recommend catching it. Please swing by if your out and about - hope to see you.
