I’m thrilled to have been accepted as one of 16 regional artists included in the “Winter 2011 at 100” in The Gallery at 100 Market (the Banana Republic/Springer’s/100 Club building)! Here is a sample of the work being placed….the pieces are tremendously huge, have gorgeous custom made cherry frames made by a local artist, and will of course be available for purchase. If you make it over, I’d love to hear what you think!
Regarding the show:
The opening will be tonight from 5pm – 7pm (Sadly, I won’t be able to join the fun)
100 Market Gallery will present “The Chairs of War,” a 21-piece series by Jocelyn Toffic, in its “Winter 2011 at 100,” “a true, win-win coup” for artist and gallery, says gallery benefactor Michael Simchik. The show also includes an additional 70 works by 16 regional artists.
“Curator Jeanne’ McCartin always works at bringing a broad variety of styles and statements; this show is incredibly successful. At the risk of repeating myself I must say this one is a stunner,” says Simchik. “ It is definitely reflective of our mission to bring quality, hard to place, noncommercial work to Portsmouth. “Winter 2011” has a lot to offer and a lot to say.”
I have two series in the show, the first series is “Above and Beyond”, with five images focusing on the industrial and natural elements of the world above us; the second series is “Immersed” with three images featuring the jellyfish of the Museum of Sciences in San Francisco. The featured images represent somewhat of a departure from my more typical work seen here at The Daily Portsmouth.
