MICA and opening pictures

Just got back from a lecture / workshop at MICA. I had a blast seeing the school and meeting the folks in Baltimore. The student wok is amazing! What a great community for art making. They invited me back to work on an artist book with the students.

matt shlian update

I'm super busy setting up 2 shows opening this Friday! - First, A two person show at the Ann Arbor Art center and a group show at the Gallery project right around the corner.

Some pictures:

My work was included in a group show at the Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston. The show dealt with architecture and structure in contemporary craft.

Its time to get familiar with my favorite artist, MFA candidate and sole member of the University of Michigan's polar research team Thea Eck. Her big big show "It is Never Tomorrow" is coming up in March and it is going to blow minds. Show details are on the final image in the series.

show images will be posted soon

i promise
