After my long public hiatus, I am very proud to be a part of the fundraising and awareness raising efforts of the Humane Society of Calvert County.
July, 2005: Whole Art Revolution - Group Art Exhibit, York College, York, Pennsylvania
A group exhibit with 6 people working in conjunction to create the exhibit proposal for the gallery management, as well as hanging paintings and advertising the event locally. Promoting the idea of Whole Art, the exhibit was aimed at spreading the philosophy of the artists' vision (see below for more information on the Whole Art philosophy).
March, 2005: Independent Art Exhibit, Borders Books and Music, York, Pennsylvania.
An exhibit of my artwork, arranged and hung by myself. There was much local interest in this small show and it was a featured story in the York Daily Record on March 19, March 17 and March 27, 2005 (due to some controversy over the mixed media piece American Politics).
Whole Art is a philosophy that believes and proposes that life and art are impossible to divide from one another. Art is neither stagnant or lifeless, but survives on its own without requiring a specific or concrete form. It can be seen, smelt, heard, tasted and felt in all aspects of life and living. Life and art are symbiotic - it is impossible for one to exist without the other. Whole Art goes beyond an appreciation for the aesthetic and raises art to a celebration of living. There are no limitations in art. Art is not concerned with age or gender, race, religion or labels that are commonly used to categorize and identify people in this world. Whole Art believes in making art a part of the entirety of life. Whole Art takes the painting off the wall above the living room sofa and brings it to the forefront of everything. The primary goal of the "Whole Art Revolution" is to change the way that every individual person thinks about art and its purpose.
