Winter 2011 at 100 Market

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.
