This table, “Acerframe”, created with Danny Sagan for the exhibit “Peace Love Harmony: 1960’s Vermont” at the Bennington Museum, 75 Main St, Bennington, VT 05201. A shout out to Paul Wallich for his help prototyping the laser cut nodes.
The theme of the exhibit is "Interdependence" . I have included a text description of my call to artists for this exhibit below. The opening of this exhibit is Saturday September 8th, 5-8 pm. open to the public. There will be a site specific performance/Installation by Amy Königbauer the evening of the opening. There will be a sound pice by Charles Hickey performed as well in one of the quarries. There will be refreshments and music. This event is open to the public.

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?

An example from a new series of drawings that I am making for the exhibit.
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!
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.
I am grateful to be invited to exhibit in my home town of Montpelier Vermont. thank you to the collective gallery members of "The Front" for inviting me to join you in October and November of 2017 as a visiting artist.
My exhibit opened at Cynthia Reeves with an artist's panel discussion. I am talking about my work in this exhibit joined by my talented fellow artists Anne Lindberg, Shona Macdonald and Gudrun Mertes- Frady . Exhibition closes January 28th-
