Smash, shatter, break, crack and destroy dishes for art and catharsis! Come and break dishes with me! I’m creating the "Dining Room" and I need your help to create a huge pile of broken tableware.
The "Dining Room" begins with a cathartic gathering, where people come together to shatter crockery. These pieces are gathered and incorporated, including the expended energy and revealed memory, to create a tableau of domesticity, exploring the hidden language of family and our oft-volatile relationship with kinship.
Donuts and refreshments provided to fuel your smashing arm. Safety goggles provided – but if you have eye protection or glasses, do bring them.
* Got some crockery or dishes to break? More the merrier! I'm collecting as many as I can so please bring them. If you don't have them, we'll have plenty too!
Entry: A dish! Bring a dish, cup, saucer or something made of stoneware, crockery or porcelain to break. (No glass please!) No dishes? No worries! Dishes await you at the door for $5 minimum donation. The donation goes to buying all those dishes, donuts and making this piece possible.
I’m also looking to collect attendee video footage and commentary, so if you can come and capture that with your phone, I’d be grateful!
For those of you who can’t join me, I promise to post pix and vids of the mayhem in my social media. I also plan to do a live Periscope session of this.
The exhibition officially opens on Wednesday, February 10th. The opening reception is February 13th. I'll be there as a digital Skype head. Come on back and see what we created together!
Please help share this info
Looking forward to seeing you!

Artists have long embraced the themes of memory, recollection, the passing of time. Their art may be a memorial to a person or event, a way to cope with trauma, a way to remember a place or experience or a way to challenge perceptions of what may have taken place versus what exists of the experience now.
"What Is, Was" brings together eleven Bay Area artists who examine these themes, creating artworks that explore concepts of the past, of memory and recollection. In this day of digital, fast-food media and a transient sense of time, the exhibition presents a realm of unhurried, subtle art processes, where artists might bring their pasts forward for us to view in the present and others may question notions of past and present. The exhibit includes performance art, installation, sculpture, book art, photography, paintings and drawings to show the range of media used to explore the theme.
