Staff & Alumni Art Show @ BlackBird Frame
September 20 - October 31
Opening Reception on Friday, September 22nd, 6-8 pm
From September 20 – October 31, Blackbird Frame & Art will host its first-ever Staff (and Alumni) Art Show. Current staff members John Nelson (paintings), Natalie Hood (sculptural), Jesse Lee (metal/wood), R.A. Cooper (drawings & cut paper) and Georgia Harden (mixed media) will be featured, along with “The BlackBird Institute”, described as “the work of an elusive spirit that haunts the century-old building on Merrimon Ave.”
Former employees and current RAD artists Phil DeAngelo and Angela Cunningham will contribute paintings to the show, as will Linda Azar (jewelry), Carrie Helmkamp (sculpture), Laura Klein Tompkins (paintings), and Anabel Winitsky (prints).
Blackbird is also offering the tongue-in-cheek theme “Whither Banality: Daring to Defy Change” (“in hopes that someone attending will offer a cohesive explanation of the show in more intellectual terms”).
