New Year, New Work 
D E A R   C O L L E A G U E S  &   F R I E N D S, 
This past year has been full of new beginnings for my life and artwork. As I reflect on last year's projects I am excited to share news & updates! In the Charlotte Potter Studio we are developing cameo portraits in anticipation of an upcoming solo exhibition at Pier 94 in New York for the 37th edition of The Photography Show, presented by
AIPAD, (the Association of International Photography Art Dealers). Lisa Sette Gallery will feature two new installations titled, Capturing Light & Cameographic. The works will highlight 100 men & women artists that have shaped the history of photography. Click here for the official press release.

Reflecting on 2016...
Grand Point Weird 

The 4th Anniversary of the interactive exhibition space within Grand Point North, hosted by Grace Potter in Burlington Vermont.

Each year I identify an overarching theme and create interactive happenings through the grounds, which makes conceptual art accessible to the festival goer. This year using the Abenaki creation story of Lake Champlain as inspiration, painter Esteban del Valle constructed a mural (pictured above) and students from the Governor's School for the Arts created masks & performances to augment the live painting. 

To tell this history I invited Judy Dow, an Abenaki educator & Artist who consulted with elders, academics & geologists to create an accompanying audio piece which played throughout exhibition space.

Glass Armory 

Solo Exhibition at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. 

In the new works created for this exhibit, skin is used as a metaphor to discuss how one’s identity is affected through relationships. Employing traditional elements of armor, such as the chest plate, the physical characteristics of different people are overlaid to create ambiguous bodily forms that border on the uncanny.

The Glass Armor, investigates the skin as both a barrier and entryway, bringing the viewer into an intimate, yet universal, conversation about the fluidity of human bodies, identities, and the material world that surrounds them.

The Park School Residency

Bottled Emotion, in Baltimore, Maryland.  

This fall I was welcomed as the Park School 2016-17 Diana Lee Fox '75 Resident Artist. During the residency I invited students to participate in an interactive glass-blowing performance titled, Bottled Emotion. The resulting glass objects and documentation of the performance were displayed in the Richman Gallery on campus, exhibited alongside my new work honoring the life of Freddie Gray, from the series Lenticular America.
