Harry & Gaye Pollitt standing among his wood sculptures at SOFA Chicago 2010

2010 SOFA Chicago. Our fifth consecutive year with del Mano

The excitement, honor and privilege never wane.  Once again I was very pleased to be invited by del Mano Gallery, Los Angeles, to exhibit works with them at SOFA Chicago 2010.  Gaye and I had our usual good time…can you tell?

Adding to the festivities on Opening Night, collectors from New York and Chicago both added a “Harry Pollitt” to their collections – Morph VIII and Morph XI.

Selected for special CWA exhibit during SOFA Chicago 2010.

Is Ornament A Crime?

A provocative question set the stage for a Collectors of Wood Art (CWA) special exhibit during SOFA CHICAGO 2010.  Is Ornament A Crime? Rethinking the Role of Decoration in Contemporary Wood.

My piece, Passages Into the Void, was included by Cindi Strauss, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Decorative Arts and Design, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. I was delighted for one of my works to help facilitate the discussion — and to have been in such notable company as pictured here.
