At long last I will be exhibiting a large number of my Divine Beauty series. It will take place as part of Beyond/In. I’m creating a specially constructed exhibition space on the second floor above Starlight Studio and Galleries and across from Hallwalls.

For the very first time, the Beyond/In Western New York biennial will present art by an invited selection of non-regional artists from the United States and abroad. Work from both regional and non-regional artists will be shown at eleven collaborating arts venues spanning Erie and Niagara Counties and at additional venues and public sites throughout the region. The expanded scope of the 2010 exhibition is expected to increase visitation and arts participation to well more than 60,000, the number of visitors to Beyond/In Western New York in 2007.

International biennial expert and consultant Bruce W. Ferguson said, “I have worked with many cities and arts communities across the globe, from Santa Fe to Istanbul, and it is unusual for a region to have this much talent and the collaborative spirit to bring it all together as a major exhibition that has such tremendous potential.” Ferguson was hired to bring a global perspective to the opportunity for Beyond/In Western New York to focus a world spotlight on the rich, vibrant regional arts scene that exists in Western New York and beyond. His participation in the project has been supported by a feasibility study grant from New York State through the Empire State Development Corporation.
