Big thanks to the fine folks at the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum's Corporate Art Loan Program for the opportunity of exhibiting the Trifecta Editions Forest Flag print series. I am amazed by the volume of art work the deCordova has on loan throughout the greater Boston area; a real win-win for artists and the museum's corporate funders.
Excited to continue my new year tradition of participating in the Boston Fun-A-Day project. This year's month-long series of daily creative output will be 31 study drawings inspired by the scientists, research and ecology of the Harvard Forest in Petersham, MA. Daily updates to be posted on my Instagram feed.

Camp Wood (wood and paper, 5'x2'x4') at Jackson Hole Arts Center, Jackson, WY. Big thanks to Carrie Richer, Meg Daly, Travis Walker and Scotty Craighead for helping realize this temporary installation at the Jackson Hole Center for the Arts. The installation will run in conjunction with the Greater Yellowstone exhibition at Daly Projects from October 8th to 31st.
I'm excited to present my Greater Yellowstone exhibition from October 8th to 31st, 2015 at Daly Projects in Jackson, WY.
In January 2015 I was awarded the Teton ArtLab Artist Residency in Jackson, Wyoming. I used the month-long residency to investigate ecological and cultural forces at play within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. My research-driven artwork promotes ecological awareness by highlighting environmental management, cultural attitudes, and land-use practices found throughout the iconic ecosystem.
The year-long project culminates with a multi-disciplinary immersive installation featuring silkscreen prints, mixed media drawings, maps and installations in and outside the galleries at Daly Projects in Jackson, Wyoming. In conjunction with exhibition, I will realize several temporary installations throughout Teton County.
Opening reception is on Thursday, October 8th from 5 to 7PM.
I am honored to be giving a talk on Friday at Harvard University's Research Forest in Petersham, Mass. I'll be presenting recent work to demonstrate the power of combining multiple disciplines (art, design, and science) to spotlight pressing environmental issues and everyday ecological phenomena. Harvard Forest Seminars are free and open to the public; no pre-registration is required. For more info including webstreaming details visit: http://harvardforest.fas.harvard.edu/seminars
I'm concentrating the next couple of months on the upcoming Greater Yellowstone exhibition at Daly Projects in Jackson, Wyoming. The multi-disciplinary installation stems from my Teton ArtLab experience this past January. The work, ranging from silkscreen prints to landscape installations is based on research into cultural and environmental forces at play within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Place-based experience, secondary research and over 36 informational interviews enable me to reflect a range of attitudes, conditions, and practices found throughout the region’s cultural landscape. Exhibition runs from October 8th to October 31st at Daly Projects and beyond.
Due to the overwhelmingly positive response from gallery visitors, the greater Boston creative community, local press and Innovation and Design Building tenants alike, Trifecta Editions and the Innovation and Design Building have extended the Hibernaculum exhibition through the month of July. Gallery Hours for July are Tuesday through Thursday, 12-3PM or by appointment. Learn more about the Hibernaculum here.
My Hibernaculum opening reception is this Friday, June 5th, 4-9PM, at the Innovation and Design Building in Boston (21 Drydock Ave). I look forward to an engaging evening of sharing artwork with folks. Please visit Trifecta Editions Hibernaculum page for reception details and full list of exhibition programming throughout the month of June. Thanks to everyone for making the installation such a pride and joy, especially all my art and design collaborators and the all important sponsors: The Innovation and Design Building, Polar Seltzer, A Street Frames and Artist and Craftsman Supply.

Jackson was wonderful, but I'm relieved to be back in Cambridge. As a wrap up to the Teton ArtLab artist residency, I've published 31 field reports on the project webpage here. These field reports document my Teton ArtLab residency, including research, landscape exploration and creative development of the project. Field reports take the form of mixed media drawings, maps, educational diagrams, photography and one-page proposals. Each field report image is coupled with a few lines of text for context.
Breaking it down. Analysis of Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and related cultural landscape has begun.
