My latest exhibit, "The Willing Suspension of Disbelief", opened on April 25 in the big, sunlit upstairs gallery space at R. Michelson Galleries in Northampton, MA. This was my 9th solo show at the gallery. Over the course of the next two weeks, as more space opened up in the gallery, my show expanded. By May 10, the opening reception, it was complete. The exhibition was extended twice, finally coming down on May 26.
Four of my paintings were displayed in the center of the street-level gallery. Ascending the staircase, "Beach and Disco" on the landing directed visitors to the main upstairs gallery. The long anteroom held two large-scale paintings, "Sirens" and "Birdwatchers of Chappaquiddick". In addition to the nine paintings in the main exhibition space, I mounted the series of blog posts about the central piece, "The Willing Suspension of Disbelief".
The gallery also produced a video (below). It really gives insight into my thoughts and process over the ten years working on this series.
