Three years ago I started this blog to showcase artists who do fantastic work and who I felt were underrepresented. I wanted to show work that deserved to be seen. I chose artwork from several different social media outlets, though mostly from Facebook. Through this venture I got to know other artists; kindred spirits who were working primarily in abstraction and who were from all over the world as well as in my backyard.
One of those people I met was the artist Susan Carr. She was doing work I was intensely drawn to. Over numerous conversations I let her in on the secret that ArtOrbiter.com was my blog. Eventually I asked her to curate the blog for a week, then several times afterwards.
Now she and Betty Carrol Fuller have curated an exhibit, using social media and online connections between artists as the theme. I’m incredibly proud of being included in this exhibit and I can say with all honesty that it is by far the best large group show I have ever been in. Many of the artist included I’ve gotten to know through social media. Some of them I know in person, others only by their work.
I normally wouldn’t post about a show I’m in, but the quality of the work was exceptional throughout. So here’s a selection of work from the Lost Cat exhibit at The Cape Cod Museum of Art through January 17th, 2016.
As Betty Carol Fuller said in the introduction to the show, “Making art is like looking for a lost cat.”
