My painting professor Maja Godlewska always says, “you can do it,” with a nod of assurance in her Polish accent after every time she starts a class with, “I have a crazy idea.” Her crazy ideas usually entail one day impromptu exhibitions. Somehow it always works, sometimes even better than I could have imagined possible.
So with that said I just agreed to a commission of a large scale collage/assemblage piece for the lobby of the UNCC Uptown Gallery. It is going to be a challenge considering it needs to be completed by the 19th of this month. I literally have ten days from today to start and finish.
The work will be on display in the lobby the same day as the opening exhibition of, “Betwixt & Between,” a site specific installation by international artist, Anna von Gwinner.
