For the past few years Spaceworks has offered a Woolworth window to display the large steamroller prints created at the annual Wayzgoose Printmaking Festival.  This year, as curator, Jessica Spring organized the exhibit of these 10 large, bold, and spirited prints along with a large accordion book illustrated by Jeremy Gregory

My recent work has involved using found and altered objects to evoke a sense of performance, or implied theatrical narrative. By staging scenes from imagined productions, my attempt is to point to consciousness as the venue for all experience. Still life, experimental animation, rock opera and a healthy dose of childhood play all come to bear in these installations. “Atlantis, Full of Cheer” is a multi-phase installation with scenes from the psychedelic Rock Opera about a fisherman who, saved from drowning by a sympathetic fish, falls in love with the Princess of Atlantis.

." In ancient Greece, there were nine Muses that presided over the arts and sciences.  For my project, INVOKE THE MUSE, I photographed family and friends, people that I consider my muses. There are many more sources of inspiration in my life, including male muses and even my dogs!  But, I kept my number to nine, to honor the ancient, original ladies.
