Corners, Joints, Seams, Edges.

The last 1% of a project........always a challenge. For some -- the unglamorous part of the process for architects and artists. For me, the design is never done until the last nail is in.....or in this case the last stitch.

I'm still working away (despite being under the weather).......a labor of love -- A right brain, left brain challenge.

A few glimpses follow:

What a great concept for an exhibit!

I am still working on the last 1% of the commissioned work. It's been slow going, I've been under the weather, but I will be making a post soon.

So -- in the meantime, if you live in the Tallahassee Area hope you can see my work along with that of 2 other architects. Visit the
Humidity Gallery blog for additional information.

Here is an excerpt from the gallery's newsletter.

We're also aware of the tremendous contribution architectural designers make to the built environment. It is they who bring design, artfulness and scientific know-how to creating human spaces.
What happens when an architect turns to creating fine art? This is a question we are exploring by inviting Tampa Bay architect, Rick Rados, AIA, and Tallahassee architect, Valerie Goodwin,RA, to exhibit their work side by side throughout Humidity Gallery.

We are including the prints of Mary Jo Spector in the 'Architects-As-Artist' exhibit. Her economy of curve and line express the essence of her subject: usually local aquatic species. They satisfy our quest for contemporary expression of the natural world of the 'humid zone' in tandem with the sensibility of an architectural designer. These accessible small works are found as matted prints and on notecards in the gallery.
