"Diapositive" group show at Cassilhaus by Daniella Trask

Collector and curator Frank Konhaus found my “Strange Histories” series online while researching the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players. A few conversations later and he asked to include some of my slide viewers in a show he was putting together at his gallery Cassilhaus in Durham, NC. “Diapositive” is a show featuring the work of 6 artists who’s work incorporates 35mm slides. If you find yourself down that way, the exhibition runs from July 26 - October 28.

Ian’s first solo show since moving back to Maine was at the Frank Brockman Gallery in Brunswick, ME. “Trash Planet” presented a brand-new, 50’ long spore installation, as well as an assortment of other work. The opening was hella fun and well attended. Thanks to everyone that came out.
