Untitled: I'm Afraid

Thanks to Jessica generously assuming the role of "artist's assistant" during her pseudo-vacation, I've been able to finish at least five prints since the last time I posted about my studio work. Thanks Jessica. Since I haven't scanned any of those prints yet I'm just going to include a poorly digitized picture of a poorly exposed negative I shot at the county fair a few months ago. Check it out below. In other news, Rhiannon Sallas is the Captive Werewolf for the second half of March and I'm doing my part to promote a national juried show being held at my gallery this summer:

The Intellectual Life Committee and the College of Arts and Sciences at Governors State University present A Whole New Mind 2010 – Brainstorm, a national juried art competition inspired by Daniel Pink’s book "A Whole New Mind – Why Right Brainers will Rule the Future." Art work documenting, analyzing and/or inspired by the intellectual activity, thought processes, dysfunctions, and/or problem solving capabilities of the human mind will be favored.

Susan Aurinko is a photographer, curator and gallerist for Coalition Gallery, Kemper Gallery IIT, and Prudential Plaza. In addition, Aurinko served as owner and curator of Chicago's FLATFILE galleries for ten years. An exhibition exhibition of her photography, entitled STILL POINT, INDIA, will open at Kriti Gallery in Varanasi, in 2010, and will tour India over the next two years.

Tricia Van Eck is Associate Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Art. This past year she co-curated the Chicago presentation of Buckminster Fuller: Starting with the Universe and coordinated the Jeff Koons retrospective. She has curated and coordinated numerous other exhibitions for the MCA including Mapping the Self and Kerry James Marshall: One True Thing - Meditations on Black Aesthetics.

Submissions for this unique exhibition are being accepted from now through April 23. More information on A Whole New Mind, a prospectus and entry form are all available at
