Two Together: Craig Kane and Timon Meyer @ Mount Airy Contemporary Fair

I wish I could see that show! Last time I saw Craig's work was at Keller Gallery in 2008. The same year in San Diego, he participated in the show "Cocked!" at Seminal Projects, and had a solo show "New Installation" at Spacecraft Gallery in North Park.

(From the press release)

Two Together
Craig Kane and Timon Meyer

September 4th - October 16th, 2009
Opening: September 4th, from 6 to 9 pm.

Gallery hours: Saturdays 12 - 4 pm.
And by appointment

In both Kane's and Meyer's work there is a sense of an internal narrative, a story told to oneself, that interfaces with a public narrative - how the world sees us. Both artists also incorporate materials and processes that reflect narrative's patchwork nature - improvisation, revision and the sense of a protagonist are ongoing subthemes. Two Together allows for a dialogue between Kane's and Meyer's work that plays off their shared interest in storytelling and personal mythologies.

Mount Airy Contemporary Artists Space is an artist-run exhibition space in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Philadelphia PA. We mount shows that emphasize connections between art communities and networks among artists.

"Welcome back!"

I am back from my trip to France. For the first time I went through the customs as an American citizen. But when I arrived at Houston airport with my American passport in my hand, I could not help being nervous, still thinking about my last trip to France two years ago, when things went really bad with Immigration and I could not come back to San Diego for 4 months... It was about a missing paper, a sand grain in the machine.

So Wednesday afternoon in Houston airport, when a smiling custom officer said joyfully: "welcome back!" as I passed the control with my children, I froze for a second - was he really talking to me?
