press, commissions and remaining shows of the year

 PRESS:

The Oregonian’s Home & Garden section wrote a piece on the Local 14 art show last September. In the article they featured a photograph of my work with small mention. OregonLive’s coverage was more in depth about the show. It included extended copy with additional photographs of my and other participants work.

COMISSIONS:

PROVIDENCE FESTIVAL OF THE TREES
This is the first year a non-living tree will be exhibited and auctioned for the Providence Festival of the Trees this year. It will benefit the hospital’s cancer research and services. I built an 8’H steel art deco tree sculpture for the event. As part of the theme all the elements in the 10×10 booth will be gold, silver and bronze with iconography from the 20’s. That aspect will be designed by my partner on the project, Sam Hull, who runs the non-profit ARTemis. It’s a group that seeks to promote female artists. Here’s a video about their mission.

I am supplying 10 FREE TICKETS TO THE EVENT. Feel free to contact me and I’ll send one or a pair. Please get in touch soon as I’m not sure how long they’ll last.

IRVINGTON TRELLIS SYSTEM
I designed, built and installed a set of four trellises for a beautiful historic Irvington residence. I was inspired by the home’s layered roofline and designed the trellises to capture that 20’s style. Pictured is the clematis and the hydrangea trellis. The clematis is an L-shape to hug the exterior wall of the porch. 4’H x 2’W and 4’H x 9’W. The hydrangea trellis is 4’H x 5’W. They are all powder coated in a neutral grey.
