I hope you can come to the closing party for my latest show of The Manual Project at Ironworks Gallery in The Valley Arts District of Orange and West Orange this Saturday January 21st from 6 to 9 pm. It is a two man show titled “Image/Identity: Looking For Who We Are” including the work of acclaimed sculptor Larry Dell.
Never satisfied to have the usual gallery party we are adding some special events:
I will be doing hand portraits of everyone using a digital photo-booth. The images will be posted on a special website and available for downloading.
Also on hand will be Gerard Amsellem and Mikel Frank who are working on a video installation piece about the nature of love. They’ll be videotaping interviews for part of an installation they’re doing entitled: Visual Heat: On Love. It will be installed in 1978 Maplewood Arts Center on Springfield Ave in Maplewood some time in the summer.
Ironworks Gallery is located at 406 Tompkins Street between Freeman and Forest Streets (Click here for a map)
This is the closing party for the gallery as well. This is your last chance to see a show at the Ironworks Gallery. Come to say ciao to the gallery and Valley Arts Director Lorena LaGrassa who is moving on to bigger and better things in our community.
I hope to see you on Saturday- please come by to say hello, have a glass of wine, feel the excitement of the Valley Arts District and have your hand photographed ! I also will be signing my book MANUAL The Personalities of Hands .
