Theme:
For the 10th anniversary of Philadelphia’s celebration of Jazz Appreciation Month, the Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative Economy (OACCE) is issuing a call for artists for works that incorporate or are inspired by instruments used in jazz. Although jazz can be played on any instrument, including the human voice, the most commonly used are saxophone, trumpet, trombone, piano, bass, drums, and guitar.

Artists are encouraged to use instrument parts or create new forms that draw from jazz instruments. Works can be either two or three-dimensional and include digital or sound art. Digital or sound elements must have proper equipment, including screen, speakers and headsets provided by the artist. All works must conform to the size limitations of the display case: 72″ height x 94″ length x 30″ depth.

Relationships
(I always say) are never easy:
especially those between
color, shape, texture, space . . .
and tension.
The relationship of the part to the part,
the part to the whole and the relationship
of the piece to the viewer . . . no matter
what materials I use is all important.
I use titles to emotionalize these abstract
pieces to help communicate a connection
between the individual and
the universal whole.

In the metal pieces I use recycled aluminum
printing press plates which I sand,
cut and glue onto wood panels, they are
about energy and light, patterns and
motion, all influenced by the microcosm
of life forms, biology, and a
hint of satire.
