Return to Blog @ Studio Cray

It’s been a little over three months since my last blog post.   Lately I have been measuring time by the works that I have created and the shows that I have participated in during a given stretch.  Specifically, since my last post in August:

 

  • Reworked and completed the Fiberglass Menagerie Dome
  • Repurposed a shortboard/surfboard (currently at Nalu SUP and Surf in Rocky River)
  • Created my first skateboard (for The Boardroom Show at e11even2 Gallery in Cleveland, January 2017)
  • Started a second skateboard (for The Boardroom Show)
  • Finished four new mini paintings (currently at Verite Glass in Oberlin)
  • Started a new fiberglass wave sculpture on canvas (for the Surfin CLE Show at Canopy in Cleveland, February 2017)
  • Started a second wave sculpture on canvas (for the DayGlo V show at Waterloo Arts in Cleveland, January 2017)
  • Started a series of miniature wood surfboards (Surfin CLE show)
  • Surface, Strata and Substance Exhibit (3 artists), Beachwood CCG
  • Tall Walls (Group Show), Canopy
  • Untitled Exhibit, Verite Glass, Oberlin
  • Planned and organized the Surfin CLE Show at Canopy in February
