Getting ready


With four more shows coming up in 2015 Tyler and I are constantly in a state of getting ready.

The next show, at the Thomas Cole House in Catskill, New York, will be part of "River Crossings," a major show of contemporary art  curated by Stephen Hannock and inspired by the Hudson River and its nineteenth century school of landscape painting.

My Map will "wallpaper" the second floor landing of the house. Shown above is the template I made this afternoon of the wall area to be covered. When I am showing something less than the complete Map such templates help me position the segment to be shown so that key elements fall in prime focal areas of the venue. This one will place the city of Ukrainia in a key spot on the landing wall.

The show opens May 3 and will run through November 1 of this year. I hope to see you there!

In the meantime please take a look at the Map selections for sale on Ebay. Every dollar we make from these sales goes back into the production of this Map and its public showings. Thanks!

Thanks!




A big thanks goes out to director Steve Brown at the Oliver Art Center in Frankfort for mounting a beautiful show. Steve is a brave soul who scrounged the studio so that we could display many artifacts from the Map's early days; including the very first panel, original map plans, my card system and a cityscape drawing I did when I was 14 years old. As a counterpoint to my Map, the show also features the exuberant work of Kristine Harvey's students from the Frankfort schools.

It was a pleasure to see all who came out to the opening. If you haven't seen the show its up until April 10th. If you aren't in the area, maybe you will have the opportunity to see the upcoming exhibition at the Thomas Cole House in Catskill, NY, opening May 3rd.

Progress from Paris




I'm writing from the studio here in Northern Michigan to report the latest from Jerry's exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. Jerry arrived late last week, and today began the process of installing the Map. The entire Map will be on display, so it looks like they have their work cut out for them this week! I know Jerry is very happy to have his family together to join him in Paris for this wonderful achievement. We will keep you updated!

You can read more about the show, titled, Le Bord Des Mondes (At the Edge of Worlds) at:
