JRR Up+Coming, Fall 2015

This latter half of 2015 has been super busy, of which I am grateful for. From late June to mid-August, I spent 7 weeks at a residency at The Chautauqua Institution in upstate New York - the longest period of uninterrupted time I've had to spend on my work, ever. It was transformational. Coming back with a new body of work and into the fall, there are a couple exciting things to mention right now:

For one, if you happen to find yourselves in New York on October 17th and 18th, I encourage  all to stop by the ICPNY Printfest - of which I will I have some work included with several other current Rutgers peeps + alums. I am aiming to get there myself on Saturday from DC, so I will look forward to seeing you if you stop on by. 

(With many thanks to Maximiliano Ferro, Barb Madsen and Randy Hemminghaus for organizing this for Rutgers!)

Similarly, I have another large show coming up in coordination with the post-MFA residency I completed at the Torpedo Factory Art Center earlier this year. This year's residents - Stephanie BoothSteve SkowronJenny Wu and myself - will be showcasing the work we did while there in an exhibition starting October 24th and running through November 29th. 

An opening reception for this show will be Thursday, November 12th from 6-8pm at the Torpedo Factory's Target Gallery. 

For those outside of the DC area, if you happen to find yourselves in the DMV, I'd love for you to stop on by during the run of the show (and please let me know, I'd also love to walk you through it!). And for those of us around the beltway, I sincerely hope to see you all on November 12th!
