Five Alive took place from May 20th through June 5th, 2010 at Monya Rowe Gallery in Chelsea. It was a group show with my four colleagues graduating from the MFA program at Purchase College. The show was curated by New York curator Omar Lopez-Chahoud, who selected a variety of work. (including a few remnants, sketches and experiments that he picked during his studio visits) Monya Rowe Gallery is a small 2nd story walk-up, but it is situated in a great location, and I like the raw look of the space. Fellow exhibiting artists included Neil Dvorak, Scott Daniel Ellison, Merav Ezer and Rachel Wiecking.
