Place: The Diver Studio 424 S. Commerce, Wichita, KS 67202
Date: April 27- May 10, 2012
Opening Reception: April 27, 2012 5:00pm - 10:00pm
Recently, I joined Sculpture Guild and am going to show my installation art piece in their annual show at the Diver Studio in downtown Wichita for this coming Final Friday.
The idea developed while I was working at the site. With the help of Guild members and the staffs and house artists at the Diver studio, I was able to tackle this space with 14' high ceiling.
Because the theme of the show is 'touchable arts' and the title is 'Fondle, Please.", I came up with the idea of this kind of 'feather balls'.
Trying different light settings
This is the first time to show my work at S. Commerce Street which is known as Wichita's art district.
The Entrance of the Diver Studio
There is a bus like this on the street.
Several galleries, artists' studios, and art related companies and stores are located on this street. It is just south of an arena where big sport games and concerts are held. Actually, when the planning for this arena was happening, there was a word that this Commerce Street district could be demolished and become a parking lot for this new arena. The Commerce Street Art District Association tried to make it politically impossible by having as many art events possible. They survived and now the Commerce Street is a thriving art district. In evenings of Final Friday event, this street gets packed with many art gallery crawlers. My work is going to be a part of it this time. I am very excited!
