Eccentric Portraits

2011, Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild, Woodstock, New York

Curated with Nancy Azara and Sylvia Leonard Wolfe. Eccentric Portraits is not your usual portrait show. It honors the artist’s license to interpret their subject rather than render it conventionally. The results are images that range from humorous, to weird, to perplexing, although all are unorthodox and unexpected.

Paths: Real and Imagined

2007, Woodstock Byrdcliffe Guild, Woodstock, New York

Sculptors mostly from the Catskill area were invited to design what they perceived to be a path of any kind, going up, across, around, or traversing through the grounds. Founded as an artists community in 1903, Byrdcliffe has open fields, manicured lawns, and some overgrown and untended winding paths, brambles and flowers. The sculpture ranges from park benches to foot paths, to painted rocks, to tall vertical works, to cut stone mazes, to signs, to iridescent tennis shoes climbing trees.

The Lily: Loosely Seen

2003, Woodstock Byrdcliff Guild, Woodstock, New York

Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition. In choosing the 20 sculptors in this exhibit, I had wanted to present a wide range of materials and visual concepts around the idea of the lily and the philosophy of Byrdcliffe.

Unbound: Reshaping Artists Books

2000, Henry Street Settlement, New York

Curated with Janet Goldner. This exhibition, composed of artists books made of unusual materials, such as steel, wood, fabric, ceramic, glass has grown out of a series of discussions between us about the nature of our work as sculptors and our exploration of the book as a three dimensional form. We intend to present materials other than the expected paper out of the range of the traditional bound book showing the work of materials other than the expected paper, out of the range of the traditional bound paper book.
