Over the years, I have had shows at Artists Space in New York and the Architecture+Design Museum in Los Angeles. In both cases, I exhibited about 20 prints and a few sculpture pieces.

Now the Aldrich Contemporary Art Musuem has invited me to create a major show for 2009-2010. I will have lots of space, including the museum's 1.5 acre sculpture garden for ten months. I'm delighted for this inspiring opportunity.

Here are the dates:

Opening reception: Sunday June 21, 2009, 3.00-5.00pm.

Exhibits in the galleries and on the Main Street frontage: June 21, 2009 to August 30, 2009.

Exhibits in the Aldrich Sculpture Garden: June 21, 2009 to April, 2010.


Here's a description of the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, from their website:

The Aldrich is one of the few non-collecting contemporary art museums in the United States. Founded on Ridgefield's historic Main Street in 1964, the Museum enjoys the curatorial independence of an alternative space while maintaining the registrarial and art- handling standards of a national institution. Exhibitions feature work by emerging and mid-career artists, and education programs help adults and children to connect to today's world through contemporary art. The Museum is located at 258 Main Street, Ridgefield, CT 06877. For more information call 203.438.4519.

The eighteenth-century "Old Hundred" building appealed to Mr. Aldrich because of its high-ceiling rooms and the extensive backyard that would be suitable for the year-round sculpture garden he envisioned. The Larry Aldrich Museum was incorporated as a nonprofit and opened in November 1964 as one of the country's first museums devoted exclusively to the exhibition of contemporary art.

In 1967, the Museum was renamed The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, with an original Board of Trustees that included Alfred Barr, Joseph Hirshhorn, Philip Johnson, and Vera List. Foremost in Mr. Aldrich's vision was that the Museum should make contemporary art accessible to a variety of audiences. Over the course of its forty-year history, The Aldrich has become renowned as a national leader for its presentation of outstanding new art, the cultivation of emerging artists, and its innovation in museum education.
