The Start of a Busy Summer Schedule!

A rundown of our busy summer season!

Summer 2013 will be a very busy one for all of us at Preston Singletary Inc.!  

When Bears Could Talk, 2013 (Blue Rain Gallery)

We kicked off the summer with some new works at Blue Rain Gallery in their Group Glass Show, alongside Dante Marioni, Rik Allen, Shelley Muzylowski Allen, Nancy Callan, Sean O’Neill, Armelle Bouchet O’Neill, Benjamin Moore, Cassandria Blackmore, Sibylle Peretti, Jeremy Lepisto, and Elodie Holmes.  

Midway through June, Schantz Galleries unveiled some of Preston's new works for their summer season, and will release a catalog later in the summer.

In July, Preston will travel to Chicago to install the first of three monumental Family Story Totems.  The totem will travel from the Czech Republic with members of the crew that cast it to install it in a very unique place - on the 62nd floor of a high-rise overlooking Lake Michigan!  The installation promises to be interesting, and there will be a film-crew recording it and the beginning stages of a new totem for a documentary about Preston that starts production this summer.

Preston's installation at the Wing Luke Museum on display through September 18, 2011.

Earlier this year, Preston was invited to participate in an exciting exhibition at the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience, entitled Cultural Confluence - On display through September 18, 2011.

From the Wing Luke website: “The historic legacies and contemporary lives of people who are both Asian and Native American come together for the first time in this exhibition. Through a mix of contemporary art, new media and storytelling, Cultural Confluence explores what it means to be Native in the city at a time when nearly two thirds of Native Americans live away from their tribal reservations and ancestral homes.”

Inspired by curio shelves and collectors of Native Art from the early 20th Century, Preston created a unique installation of glass work, items from his personal collection of “Indian Kitsch,” hand tinted enlargements of vintage postcards, and a hand tinted portrait of Preston in Tlingit regalia by Russell Johnson.

Also included is the first proof-blanket off the loom from his collaboration with Pendleton Woolen Mills, which you can learn about in the next blog post!
