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."

A pdf of the exhibition may be viewed here.

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.

James Grashow's Corrugated Fountain at Allan Stone Gallery, NYC

James Grashow’s sculpture,  Corrugated Fountain, will be exhibited from March 3-April 23, 2011, at Allan Stone Gallery, 113 East 90th St., New York, NY. There will be an opening reception with the artist on Saturday, March 12, from 4-6 pm. 

Grashow works in cardboard. That sounds like it might look blocky until you see the result. The sculpture, inspired by Rome's Trevi Fountain, looks incredibly fluid, full of graceful curves and sea creatures, at the center of which is a very mighty-looking Poseidon. The cardboard looks hardly monochromatic—the dimensionality enhances the rich, brown tones of the paperboard. 

The gallery will also be screening excerpts from The Cardboard Bernini, a documentary on James Grashow by Olympia Stone. A fully-illustrated book of his work will be available.
