On Saturday I drove into Newark with a little trepidation to drop my work off at 77 Market Street for the Newark Open Doors 2012: Bushberg Project Submissions & Transmissions curated by Rupert Ravens. After navigating the one way system I eventually managed to find a parking place close to the gallery. A huge very raw space with a group of very friendly workmen but not too many signs that a huge art happening was about to happen. The workmen very kindly found Rupert Ravens for me, who put me at ease and I was able to deliver my work. Rupert assured me that the space would be totally transformed by Friday night, so after signing the paperwork, I left my work with him and headed home.
Today I received an e-mail from Rupert with a link to the page for theshow. I am now really excited about Friday and am a bit awed with the company I will be keeping. The huge space which on Saturday seemed impossible to fill by Friday I am quite sure is going to be quite a spectacle with installations by artists who have shown both nationally and internationally. Here is a sampling:
AK Airways will be there with a sculptural installation made from inflatable objects, their work has been presented at MOMA, underground raves and NASA…
Sculpture by Matt Stone of Brooklyn
Richard Wislocky, a West Orange Native and mega producer extraordinaire who has performed across the globe as well as “constructed a plethora of various multi-medium’ed” installations will also be represented.
Peter Schlangenbader a contemporary German Expressionist artist.
Beaded sculptures by A. Kimberlin Blackburn.
Newark born photographer Manuel Acevedo who has shown both nationally and internationally.
And many more…
Not to mention myself Ann Vollum!
Other South Orange artists inthe show include photographer Joy Yagid, installation artist Kate Dodd and painter and print maker Larry McKim who both teach at Columbia High School in Maplewood, NJ.
So don’t miss this show, it is sure to be fun.
