Hello Friends,

moxie DaDA gallery is proud to host artist Connie Cantor’s second solo exhibition with us, “SCRIBBLING FOR DUMMIES”, JUNE 6 – 20, 2009. You are invited to a special opening reception this Saturday June 6, 2009 from 6:00-9:00pm. As always, this reception is free and open to the public. Connie has been exploring with lines and unconscious marks to produce a dialogue of which cannot be heard. Her new series challenges us to use our own intuition by offering an interactive “scribbling” – making our own marks and creating our own dialogues. These marks come from an inner dialogue and expression… uncovering patterns and conversations within our selves.

Connie Cantor's current work explores the freedom and fluidity of "not knowing." Working in dialogue with the intuitive mark, Cantor gives language to an alphabet of effortless line and form. The work is random, playful, obsessive, informed by the inherent fertility of movement stripped of plan. "I am drawn to the strength and validity of accident." says Cantor. "There is an intelligence here that cannot be preconceived—a wiser voice I have chosen to trust and honor. The deeper the surrender of outcome, the more vital the conversation."

Mark your calenders and start assembling your team for the scribbling event of the year, "Scribblefest" on Saturday June 20 at 7:00pm. Stay tuned for details, as follow-up e-mail will be sent again before the event. See you soon!
