I received an email the other day from London based artist Chris Jones informing me about a two person show he's participating in with Fendry Ekel at the Ana Cristea Gallery in Chelsea in NYC. Chris was an artist in residence at HVCCA in 2008 where he turned the upstairs gallery into a mess of books and magazines from which he culls photographic imagery on which his paper sculptures rely for both their structure and their surface character.  Back in 2008 I made a couple of visits to Chris' studio bearing a pile of magazines from folks in Beacon to add to the stash from which his work is created.

The exhibit at Ana Cristea Gallery opens with a reception from 6-8pm on Thursday, Oct 14 and runs through Nov 13.
