Hosted in Phoenix’s Bragg’s Pie Factory, Dangerous and Hard to See is a juried group exhibition featuring work of all media, from artists throughout the United States. Curated by Ryan Peter Miller, work in the exhibition questions traditional modes of presentation and function. Through videos, conceptual work, installations, fibers, sculpture and more, participating artists challenge the tropes of gallery exhibition. The exhibition’s aim is to undermine the platitudes of display while acknowledging the system through which commercial art is exhibited.
Artists in the exhibition include William Andrews, Janet Braun-Reinitz, Peter Bugg, Robert Derr, Peter Emerick, Gratuitous Art Productions, Dana Hemenway, Elizabeth Morisette, Aaron Nicholson, Laura Pawson, Evan Pomerantz, Marco Rosichelli, Thomas Sturgill, Dan Szymanowski, Matthew Wilson, and Katherine Worel.
Bragg's Pie Factory is located at 1301 N.W. Grand Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85007. For more information, become friends with Bragg’s Pie Factory on Facebook.
Starting January 19 I will be part of a three person Exhibition, Over the River and Through the Wood, that will be up at
Paradise Valley Community College.

Arizona State University Art Museum
Open for Business
October 9, 2010 – January 29, 2011
Opening reception: Friday, October 8, 7-9pm
Arizona State University Art Museum & Downtown Tempe Businesses
What do the ASU Art Museum, Tempe Chamber of Commerce, Tempe Convention and Visitors Bureau, Downtown Tempe Community (DTC), Local First Arizona, Create Connect, *Scottsdale Public Art and Volunteer Legal Assistance for Artists (VLAA) have in common? They engage, educate, raise awareness and connect communities. In a collaborative effort to create increased understanding and dialogue about local community, these organizations will join forces with local business owners and artists for Open for Business, an exhibition which will take place jointly at businesses of downtown Tempe and an interrelated exhibition in galleries of the ASU Art Museum. The exhibition will involve sixteen Arizona artists exploring, and allowing the audience to explore, businesses of the Tempe community with onsite installations and projects. The work created for the exhibition will address the purpose of each business, challenging the audience to interact with the physical space and purpose of each business. Guide maps to the locations will be produced and available throughout downtown Tempe, Scottsdale and the ASU Art Museum.
The projects intention is to connect local contemporary artists with local businesses in hopes of a mutually beneficial art/business related outcome. The projects will be respectful, relevant and engaged with the actual purpose of that individual business. The projects may have fun with the business and/or its customer, but will not make fun of that business and/or its customer.
