PIECES OF TIME at Foundations Gallery

Foundations Gallery at Columbia Greene Communitiy College will host
Pieces of Time
an exhibit of drawings, installation and sculpture from October 21 to November 23, 2010. The opening reception is on Thursday October 21 12:30-1:30.
Columbia Greene Community College is located at 4400 Route 23 in Hudson, NY.

I am very excited about this exhibit. It is giving me the opportunity to freely explore some ideas I have been playing with in my studio. It is a large space which affords plenty of room for hanging installation. There are also glass showcases which will be a perfect environment for small maquettes and miniature sculpture.

This image is a detail of the installation Pieces of Time (Found object on vellum).
