The Arts Council of Greater Lansing offers members the opportunity to showcase artwork in the contemporary setting at 1208 Turner Street. Exhibits run for one month (as assigned by the Arts Council). An open call to dues-paying Arts Council members is announced twice per year.

* Opportunity includes an artist-hosted opening reception held at the Arts Council (artists are responsible for providing light refreshments). Receptions are typically held on Fridays (some are on Arts Night Out).

* Chosen artist's deliver and install their own work using the Arts Council's Walker Display system, which runs approximately 20 feet and holds up to 300 pounds of weight in total (50 pounds per hanging mechanism). See what the system looks like.

I have been using light and color on the human form since the age of 14 and have worked intensively with film cameras for four years. A favorite method is using long exposure photography while shining colored light onto and around models, but he also photographs models painted using conventional, metallic, or UV fluorescent paint, and has added color in post-processing. The goal of Bodies of Light is to use the techniques of photography to marry the beauty and grace of the human form with innovative textures and lighting to create beauty that has meaning to people in a way that is not erotic.

I am a sculptor; however, I enjoy painting inside through the winter months when the studio becomes too cold for my hands to sculpt. While transitioning back and forth, I find that painting and sculpture complement one another. In both, the materials are central in my works because the materials suggest ideas and guide my thoughts. Rather than controlling the process of creating, I revel in the uncertainty of art and ideas as the materials unfold and reveal their potential. I embrace the risks, the complexities, the chaos, and the spontaneity of making art. I like to play and learn from my mistakes as I tackle them as opportunities. Art seems to undo me and take me apart.
