Trapper Keeper is a group exhibition featuring work by Tina Linville, Annelie McKenzie, Dakota Noot, and Don Porcella, four artists whose works display fresh takes on contemporary figuration. While varied in their explorations, these artists share connection through their vibrant use of color, energy and humor; creating a fantastical world rich with hearts, stars, and a myriad of characters and creatures. Wielding kitsch like a glorious weapon, these artists elevate every day materials like pipe cleaners, glitter, rhinestones, stickers and beads to the realm of fine art. These pieces, unencumbered by any ties to pragmatic realism, allow humans, animals, aliens and hybrid forms to co-exist in a space, resulting in an environment that is at once florid, energetic, and joyously bizarre.

I'm excited to have a sculpture included in "Diverge/Convene: Contemporary Mixed Media” at the San Diego Art Institute from April 1, 2017 through May 15.
The group exhibition “Diverge/Convene: Contemporary Mixed Media” highlights artists of all media working in the liminal spaces not easily defined by traditional collage or assemblage work. The artists in “Diverge/Convene” have all developed and share an understanding of contemporary collage as a medium and a genre, employing disparate elements through the use of materials and/or content. This exhibition celebrates artists both locally and nationally that are not only working in traditional 2D/3D mediums, but also in sound sculpture, video, photography, installation, and alternative processes. The exhibition is organized by Ginger Shulick Porcella, Exeuctive Director of SDAI, and Kate McNamara, Director of Galleries and Exhibitions for the Ben Maltz Gallery at Otis College of Art and Design.
Selected artists include: Wick Alexander, Elise Amour, Sean Capone, William Crump, Patrick Dintino, Aaron Garretson, Tara de la Garza, Marina Grize, Ivy Guild, Greg Haberny, Jodi Hays, John Brinton Hogan, Alan F. Jones & Lissa Corona, Robin Kang, Davin Kyle Knight, Angele Lebert, Tina Linville, Elena Lomakin, Jessica McCambly, Bhavna Mehta, Carmelo Midili, Joshua Moreno, Margaret Noble, Edwin Nutting, Brianna Ortega, Sara Parent-Ramos, Scott Polach, Ryder Richards, Gwen Samuels, Ali Silverstein, Josh Slater, Eva Struble, David Willburn, Ricardo Yanofsky.
