I think they call that a CONVOY

Charlotte Schulz, An insufficiency in our screens: our hurt sang back to mlk when the
incompossible appeared. 2006 charcoal on paper 29” x 80”

Among the current offerings at the Aldrich Museum in Ridgefield CT. is an exhibit of Charlotte Schulz's work. The exhibit titled "An Insufficiency in Our Screens" opened at the museum on August 25 and will be continue through June 2008.
An opening reception will be held on Sunday, Sept 16 from 3 to 5 pm.

From the press releas for the exhibit:

This exhibition will feature a collection of two- and
three-dimensional charcoal drawings that invite the viewer to explore strange
composite architectural spaces in which dreams blend with memory and reality.
Fragments of buildings are tethered together, and interior unfolds into exterior
and back again. Thespaces she renders appear to be unpopulated, allowing the
viewer to easily step in as protagonist.
Charlotte's exhibit "Object Lesson: Drawings & Notebooks" at Parasite in December of 2005 is among my favorite installations ever. There are pictures of the installation on Charlotte's website here. Included with some full scale drawings, was a mass of of sketchbook pages, books and writings in a sort of invocation of Charlotte's working process. I distinctly remember how tiny and dense her writing was. Now that I'm thinking of it. I'm really kicking myself for not buying one of the digital repros of the working sketches and notes. I had intended to do so and didn't - damn it. Unfortunately, it seems that I did not take any photos of the exhibit

It seems we'll be organizing a small regatta of vehicles to head out to the opening. If you're interested in carpooling, shoot me an email and we'll make arrangements.
