It’s been a year since our gallery show in Palm Desert, California, and the past year has brought many, many changes to the The Suboken Project.
The first half of 2014 sustained a strong interest for the In A Place project. We sold quite a few limited edition prints from Series Two and Series Three. We were also able to get the In A Place photography/essay book into more peoples hands in search of support to finally get the book published.
2014 has gifted The Suboken Project with some new developments and opportunities.
One such opportunity is the consolidation the Suboken.com portfolio website with the Suboken Project blog into a single web destination. As the saying goes, please excuse our dust while this transition is in progress.
Another timely announcement for you is that In A Place: Series 2 prints will be on sale this Friday, 4th of April at the Venus Studios Art Walk and Bazaar. We’re offering a Mother’s Day special on the prints if you’re looking to buy something extra special for Mom. Speaking of mothers, Calista and I will be bringing our special little guest with us on Friday as well and would love for you to stop by and say hello. The art walk runs from 2:00 to 7:00.
Venus Studios is located at 41801 Corporate Way, Palm Desert, CA 92260
Today was the second day hanging the show. I knew I had dropped off a good number of art pieces for the exhibit, forty-two pieces to be exact. (I’ll steal a smile with Douglas fans, and don’t forget to bring a towel.) But walking into the space this afternoon with almost everything now hung on the walls made this whole adventure all the more real.
The moment that shifted my perspective was when these letters were revealed on the wall.
The show opens tomorrow, but here’s a sneak peek at some of the work featured in the exhibit.
If you noticed that The Cartographer’s Dilemma is mysteriously absent from this post, there’s a reason. It’s in the show, but there’s something additional involved in its presentation. I’ll leave you with a coy hint, an update is long over due for The Cartographer’s Dilemma page on the website.
The Suboken Project has been producing in full force over the past couple months. An eagerness to get things back on track after the loss of the Drobo hard drives has fueled my efforts in finishing up current projects as well as creating new work. So, shall we visit with an update on what Suboken has been doing?
The November gallery show at the Palm Desert City Hall is right around the corner. There’s a healthy amount of work left to get ready for the show, but I’m on schedule, and that’s a huge comfort for Calista and me. The show will feature pieces from The Cartographer’s Dilemma sculpture series, as well as the entire collection from In A Place: Series Two. Continue reading →
