I am happy to report on the upcoming show of our fellow collagist Steven Specht! The very guest writer of this blog is having a show of his collage work from September 11 - October 11 at the Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts (which btw, has recently updated their website!)
Besides assisting me in keeping this blog afloat, Steven has a juicy list of credentials...
"Steven Specht is Professor of Psychology at Utica College. Dr. Specht has exhibited works at a number of venues in Central New York State including the Salmon River Fine Arts Gallery (at which he won “Popular Best in Show”), Kirkland Arts Center, Mohawk Valley Center for the Arts (at which he won the “Solo Exhibition Award”) and the juried Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute Sidewalk Show. He has also shown works nationally at the juried exhibit of the National Collage Society (NCS) and won a cash award in 2009 for his work at the NCS annual “Wish You Were Here” postcard show. He recently had work on exhibit at the Climate Gallery in New York City and at the 17th Annual International Salon of Contemporary Collage in Paris, France."
I love knowing that there are other creatives living nearby. I am glad this show is close to home and look forward to going to this show. Good luck on the show Steven!
