georgetown glow

i am very excited to be participating in Georgetown GLOW this year. while not an official participant, the studio we work out of has submitted our entry to the Georgetown Business Improvement District.

GLOW is an annual event consisting of large outdoor light installations.

in collaboration with Klagsbrun Studios and the Tuesday Night Group (TNG), GreenMoonArt installed a 15 foot tall (4.6 meters) animated LED figure. since the TNG is a figure drawing collective, the figure is meant to evoke the idea of gesture drawing.

dubbed the "rainbow racer", the figure looks as if it is running uphill, through the trees.

GLOW runs from december 9 through january 6. come check it out! refreshments are provided on saturday, december 9 and thursday, december 14.  we're at #10 on the map.

Artomatice 2017 comes to a close - tomorrow!

Artomatic 2017 has been an amazing experience. this 6-week indoor art festival enabled 600+ visual artists, plus dozens of musicians and performing artists, to give a soul to a building that previously had been filled with government workers.

above is a shot of 4 of my 6 pieces. to those who stopped by, thank you. i enjoyed the thrill of putting together a themed exhibition especially for Artomatic. my work was done in both my crystal city studio (blue studio underground) and at TechShop.

if you haven't visited yet, you have two more days!

painting, arduino, and LEDs

i am pretty happy with this piece, currently at Artomatic. it is an oil painting on wood. once the painting was completed, i laser cut its outline, laser etched the New Colossus poem onto it, fitted it with an Ardruino controlling some NeoPixel LEDs, and made some wooden sides for it. i plan to do more pieces of this type.

Artomatic 2017!

i am looking forward to Artomatic 2017, DC's amazing semi-random arts festival.

approximately 700 visual artists, and many musicians and performing artists, will take over an old office building in Crystal City, Virginia (part of Arlington next to National Airport).

this year i am putting together a Liberty series, inspired by some signs i made for the Women's March. Here are some of those signs:

twitter art exhibit

just sent in my entry for the Twitter Art Exhibit.
it's an annual fundraiser using postcard-sized art.

it is an oil painting on cardboard. i scanned in another of my paintings and used it to laser etch the color off of the base painting.
