Small World....even in Kinetic Sculpture


The Internet and social media regularly remind us how small our world has become.  I received an interesting email this past week which circled it all back home.  It came from another kinetic sculptor, Chris Fitch from the Boston, MA area. He first found out about my work from Idea Factory in New Orleans and recently discovered that we are in neighboring states. We also learned that we come from the same home town and attended the same high school although at different times. Yes, it is a small, small world. 

Here are some examples of some of Chris' kinetic sculptures and, (because what is a kinetic piece without motion), a YouTube video of one of them.

Chris also shared that he, along with Arthur Ganson and Tom Haney, both noted kinetic sculptors, are part of a group show "Moves Me" opening April 28th at the Axiom Gallery in Boston. The gallery has limited hours so check the website before planning a visit. Below is the announcement for the show from their website.  Should be a great show and an opening worth attending. Marji and I are looking forward to seeing what is new in kinetic sculpture in New England.

The Axiom Gallery is located at the corner of Green and Armory Streets in Jamaica Plain. It is on the ground floor level of the Green Street train stop on the Orange line. 141 Green Street. Jamaica Plain, MA.
