I hope you are enjoying this spring as much as I am! Things have been excitingly busy here including the opening of a brand new studio space, several international exhibitions, acquisitions, reviews, and publications. A few of the highlights are listed below. Thank you so much for following along this journey with me!
Removed Self-Portrait, TEDx Bend in The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Collection
The photograph made during my presentation at TEDxBend was acquired by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. This happened a while ago however, I only recently saw that they had updated the acquisition on the MFAH website. Thanks to Anne Wilkes Tucker, Joan Morgenstern, and Clinton T. Willour for making the purchase of this work in honor of Rick Wester.
Removed living in Hong Kong
Install photographs by Michael Pascual
It’s difficult to explain the feeling when you put your heart into your work and then someone who truly appreciates it builds a relationship with you and then makes the leap to live with your art. It’s like a part of you and that person merge and you know both of you will never be the same. Thanks Michael Pascual for making my work and life a permanent fixture of your home in Hong Kong.
New Studio Space!
Eric Pickersgill Studio
After 20 years of dreaming and 2 years of searching I finally landed my own studio space! The studio is located in the Elizabeth Neighborhood in Charlotte, North Carolina about half a mile from our house. I’m so excited to get started on some new projects. I will have a studio welcoming party in the next few weeks.
Exhibitions – Current and Past
The Space Between Julie Saul Gallery
New York, NY
“Angie and Me” was included in the group exhibition The Space Between curated by Edna Cardinale at Julie Saul Gallery. The show included some of my favorite artists, many of them I studied for years and it was an honor to have my work in conversation with theirs. It was also so fun to see my NYC friends and I can’t thank you all enough for showing up in numbers.

I am honored that Maude Arsenault curated Removed into this years Art Souterrain Festival. The festival is a main attraction for Montreal each March and I was so excited to participate. This is one of the most public displays of my work which was said to have been viewed in person by over 150,000 people!

New Blood: Recent Discoveries from the Cassilhaus Collection
CASSILHAUS, Chapel Hill, NC
“Angie Snappin Pics” will be included in the exhibition New Blood: Recent Discoveries from the Cassilhaus Collection
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 9th, 7pm at Cassilhaus
The Cassilhaus Collection continues to grow and evolve in a very organic way as we meet and experience new art and artists along our path. New Blood looks at new work that has entered the collection in roughly the past 5 years since our last new acquisition survey exhibition, Glimpse, in 2013. More than 70 works by 60+ artists are represented with nearly 40 of the artists completely new to the collection. A special section of the exhibition includes a group of photographers from the prestigious Magnum Photo Agency. Although primarily photo-based artwork, work in 10 different media are represented including bronze sculpture, wood block prints, stoneware, photogravure, lithography, prisma color and ballpoint drawing, and steel reinforced earthcast concrete.
We hope you’ll join us for the opening reception on May 9th at Cassilhaus! Directions will be forwarded upon RSVP.
