The Gang of Five Reconnected at the University of Oklahoma where we went to school 40 years ago. The exhibit was in the Lightwell Gallery where we first exhibited way back then.
Honestly, I expected only a handful of folks. It was Thanksgiving holiday. The big football game was going on, who would go to hear an artists' talk? Packed. We were so excited. Caroline Farris is at the lectern, I'm on the left then Ying Kit Chan, Laura Warriner and David Hailey.
Old friends, new connections. Stories. New work to talk about. Driving the cities to see new museums and discovered that this time around I could find vegetarian food! Just wonderful. November 2022
Welcome to Nina’s Blog. I am quickly classified as a public artist, generally meaning art for the public realm. It is different than a gallery/museum way of thinking. My way of making public art has manifested more traditionally as a site specific sculpture for a fire station. It encompasses some gorilla installations, some home and environmental designs and most recently many apartment developments. Usually having a theme, like; solar powered, low income, green, and educational. Apartment complex art is not interior design. The viewing audience is a hybrid of the general public and private art in a public space. I enjoy the variety.
