I write a regular column called “Design Culture” in Communication Arts magazine. Here’s a link to the January/February 2019 issue, in which I spoke with my fellow MacDowell Fellow Nene Humphrey about the process of creation when facing a loss.
Susan Hodara and I are teaching our weekend workshop: "Writing About Your Photographs for Grant Proposals, Exhibition Catalogues, Artist Statements or Public Presentations” at the International Center of Photography in Manhattan on Feb. 2 and 3, 2019.

October 1 – November 19, 2018
Jefferson Market Library
425 6th Avenue, New York, NY 10011
From October 1 through November 19, in conjunction with the city-wide festival “Reimagine,” my solo exhibition “Check out this sculpture!” will be on view at the Jefferson Market Library.
For the past 4 years, I have been developing a sculptural work titled “Like the Back of My Hand.” It has encompassed illness, loss, and solace. I wanted to encourage interaction with the sculpture, and found the ideal place: Jefferson Market Library. We invite you to check out a hand sculpture—take it home, hold it, and perhaps you will find your own story of loss and creativity. And, if you like, share a photo on Instagram, with the hashtag #checkoutthissculpture. When you return the piece, I will use it to create new artwork, continuing its lifecycle.
On Monday, October 29, at noon, I will present a panel discussion for “Reimagine” titled "Good Grief: artists and writers share stories of loss and creativity." Come and contribute your story to the conversation! Jefferson Market Library, Willa Cather Room, first floor.
