Year in Review May 2015

May was riddled with excitement as Monica Uszerowicz and I curated and produced her first solo exhibition at Maggie Knox's pop up in the reception of MADE.

We marked the opening with a beautiful, intimate moon ritual and the next day invited the community to enjoy the show. At the same time, there was a Haitian first communion celebration and film screening upstairs, so the audience was a mixed bag - with kids sharing in the snacks, and adults in the drinks. It is always a pleasure to share art work with all people.

MADE kept me quite busy in May, while I was jump starting the programming and extending the network of the space. I was pleased to host 'Lust Futures' seedling workshop with Cassidy Fry and Nicole Salcedo, The Hongs for a special Happy Hour, and a collaborative evening at Miami Industrial Arts for a raku ceramic workshop.

A new arrival to the studio came with a huge bang! Maggie Knox HQ was pleased to receive Cristina Gonzalez and Ariella Mostkoff as residents (and printers).

I was invited to participate in Miami's first Adobe PhotoJam, an all day photography competition with the prompt (delivered at 7am) 'My Neighborhood'. I didn't win, but the pleasure of sharing work with the other 20 photographers, and the community, was amazing. Here are a few of my shots from the day.
