There is a fabulous exhibit up at the Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art in Rancho Cucamonga, California. When I’m 64, curated by Rebecca Trawick, centers around aging in America. There are funny, melancholy, poignant, and absurd moments to discover in the images on display. The exhibit runs through November 21, 2012.
Five of my large-scale photographs from the Window Peeping series are included.
Art critic Stacy Davies deserves credit for recommending When I’m 64, and writing a great review in Visual Art Source (VAS). Aging is not sexy. We live in a youth obsessed world. Davies looked beyond the normal art hype to give Rebecca Trawick and the show the credit it deserves. Thanks, Stacy. I know I sound a little full of myself for blogging this because my work is included. However, my purpose is to bring attention to the topic of aging than to my work. In fact, there are seven other incredible artists in this show; Troy Adssey, Jeanne C. Finley, Jessica Ingram, Nancy Macko, Peter Riesett, Shari Wasson, and Martha Wilson. As someone who spent five years taking care of an elderly mother with dementia, I know our health care system needs revisions. I take every opportunity to spotlight their plight. After all, we will be there someday too.
