Your neighbors, out in the world

Ok, let's start playing a bit of catch up here.

Early Warning repeat (digitally printed wallpaper)
Alison Moritsugu's work is included in the group exhibit American Story at the Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan MI. which will remain on view through January 2010.
I missed posting about Steve Rossi's participation in the Lilliput exhibit at Seton Hall which ended on July 23.  Steve was represented in the exhibit in which no work was larger by 1.5" in dimension by two of his miniature chewing gum camouflage modules. A pdf version of the exhibition catalogue of the exhibition contains images of the work.
Shawn Trail and Jennifer Trail will be setting up house in Copenhagen for the coming year.  Shawn has received a Fulbright Scholarship with which he plans, according to a story in LoHud.com, " to design and develop an electro-acoustic, midi-equipped zylophone."
The working portion of my Summer vacation, had me assisting my own little piece of Germany, Angelika Rinnhofer, with the installation of her two person exhibit with Beatrice Haverich at the Museum Industrie Kultur in Nuernberg, Germany.  PDN Magazine sported one of Ms. Rinnhofer's images on the cover of July's "Fine Art" issue.  The cover story covers the role of non profit galleries in the world of photography and includes some words of wisdom from CPW director Arial Shanberg.
 
Above and below, Angelika's collaboration with her seamstress mother.
 
Peter Iannarelli is one of the artists selected to participate in the 2009 Mohawk-Hudson Regional Exhibition  by this year's juror Matthew Higgs.  The exhibit will remain on view at the University of Albany's University Art Museum through August 8.
I'm taking part in the 10x10x10 exhibit in Ellenville this year.  Instead of a singular installation in my given storefront location, I'm doing a series of consecutive projects through the run of the show which ends in October.  The first installation TORRENT or FORRENT which will be on view for another week or so includes For Rent signs created by Todd Sargood, Erica Hauser, Heather Sardanopoli, Franc Palaia.
If you're a Beacon area artist and you've got something going on anywhere, send me the info, and if I can, I'll share it with your neighbors.  Also if there's a postcard or other printed paraphernalia that accompanies any of your activities, please reserve a copy for the Beacon Art Postcard Archive.
