We were happy to receive to notifications from two artists that were included in National Small Works about their ongoing projects, which we wanted to share here.
First, you may remember our post about Funding for Artists, and we mentioned Scott Barnes’ Kickstarter project, which was used to fund the creation of his Grand Canyon Suite. We’re happy to report that Scott received full funding (and more!) for that project.
Second, we just received an invitation to Curtis Bartone’s ongoing exhibition “Reclamation: Etchings and Lithographs” at the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (Calgary, Alberta). This exhibition is comprised of 18 etchings and lithographs that place some of nature’s “undesirables” (such as the grub in “Turf,” in or on “desireable” human landscapes (such as the suburban neighborhood in “Turf.” If you’re in the area this weekend, the opening reception for this show is TONIGHT at 5:30 pm, and Curtis will give an artist demonstration TOMORROW at 1 pm. If you’re going to be in the Alberta area sometime in the next few weeks, the exhibition will be on view through October 13.
