Creighton Michael is featured in the four-artist exhibition "Dimensions Variable" at Waterhouse & Dodd, New York. The other artists are Jae Ko, Derrick Velasquez, and Golnar Adili.

From curator Dr. Maxim Weintraub's (Dept. of Art, Hunter College, CUNY) essay that accompanies the exhibition:
"Dimensions Variable brings together four artists who radically reconsider, recast, and re-present the sculptural object. [...] The works assembled in this exhibition push the boundaries of sculpture into new and variable directions, allowing us to appreciate how the sculpted form, and our relationship to it, continues to be nomadic and unsettled."

The exhibit runs from March 28 - April 27, 2012 with an opening reception Wednesday, March 28, from 6 - 8 p.m. Waterhouse & Dodd is located at 104 Greene St. (Bet. Prince and Spring Streets), NY, NY.

Andrew Buck: "Rockface" at Real Art Ways in Hartford

Photographer and client Andrew Buck's show Rockface opens Thursday April 21, 2011 at Real Art Ways, 56 Arbor St., Hartford, CT. The show runs until June 10, 2011. From the press release: "Rockface is the result of the artist's three-year examination of the exposed and blasted rock created by mining and road development" which Buck photographed in Connecticut and Maine

From Buck's artist's statement: "This series links the two themes in my work: landscape and abstraction. All of the rock faces I have photographed were created by blasting through hills for construction or for granite and trap rock quarrying. The images are abstract, but they are also concerned with how our impact on the natural landscape creates an entirely new landscape."

The black and white archival carbon pigment prints are velvety and three-dimensional looking.

Also opening there is Zbigniew Grzyb: New Works: Branch/Sky Series

The opening is running during Real Art Ways' third-Thursday Creative Cocktail Hour, Thurs., Apr. 21, 6—8 p.m., $10/$5 Real Art Ways members.
