On Site construction has begun for "Job Site", at BCA center, Burlington City arts

Bill Ferehawk, my collaborator , arrived late Tuesday evening. We completed documenting works on Wednesday, loaded the car and by Thursday we were at Burlington City Arts. For two days we constructed the framed walls assembly;lage that will incorporate two video projections. With the help of my husband, Danny Sagan, and with an extra hand from BCA staff, we lifted the walls into place. Monday , June 17th, we resume our installation process and will be hanging the “Studfinder Drawings” as well as prepping the wall for the Frottage drawings of tools. Below some images of the Tool Drawings framed and a few process images.

Interdependence reflects a form of symbiosis, the interaction between two or more elements for the benefit of all. Interdependency is a state of mutual support. 

The concept of interdependence can serve as a lens to understand the relationships within natural systems and between people, industries, nation-states, structural components and abstract forms. The modern era is defined, in part, by an increase in interdependency. As our technologies, economies, and cultures have evolved they are more apt to be tied to complex systems of mutual reliance. We have always been in a state of interdependence with our natural systems. Within many fields of study, we examine the interdependence of factors that drive outcomes.

Within the field of art and the practice of art it is useful to ask in what ways our practices are dependent on the work of other artists or other works of art. How are we influenced and inspired by fellow artists? How do we in turn support others? What other systems of mutual support drive creativity? Nothing we achieve is accomplished alone.

The Carving Studio and Sculpture Center occupies a site shaped by an industry’s need for the marble below the surface. The transformation of this defunct quarry into a thriving art center reflects a web of supporting relationships, not least that between the art exhibited and the site. How does the site impact the art made and exhibited here and how does this art shape the way we understand, move through and experience this place? 

Drawings in the Main Street Museum 25th anniversary exhibit opening December 8

Having been one of the community of artist's exhibiting during the Main Street museum's first year I am honored to show here again. The energy and creativity that surrounded David Ford's unique art venue in the 1990's anchored my sense of being part of a larger vibrant arts community in Vermont. May this worth institution endure another 25 years!

My Drawings at Bennington Museum November 24 -December 28, 2017

I have been invited to create a work that responds to a Nicols Goddard early 19th century clock in the Bennington Museum Collection. This work will be exhibited in a group show titled "Time for the Holidays" and is for sale, a silent auction and fundraiser for the Museum.

My artist's statement for the exhibit: 

For this set of drawings I hammered a gear similar in age and form to a component in the Nichols Goddard Clock. I placed the gear in the center of each square of paper (with graphite transfer paper in between) and struck the gear repeatedly. Each time I hit the gear with the hammer it moved. I used time as a parameter for the work; viewing these series in a clockwise direction from the upper right quadrant drawings were made in 15, 30, 45 and 60 second intervals. These time frames reference the markings on the face of the Nichols Goddard clock. While this work is silent and static as displayed, the process of making the drawings encompasses sound and movement, resonating with like qualities of the Goddard clock as it works to keep time.
