This will be my second Other Art Fair (I did Brooklyn in Nov 2017) and my first time showing my work internationally! For comp tickets use this link: bristol.theotherartfair.com/comp and then all you have to do is get to Bristol July 26-29. The Passenger Shed is an historic venue and there will be about 100 artists. Very excited. I will have smaller paintings at the fair itself and larger ones will be available on my Saatchi Art page.
This petite painting 'Signal Pink', acrylic on 4"x4" wood panel, will be included in an upcoming show on color, 'Spectrum Gestalt 5' at bG Gallery in Santa Monica CA. Opens June 16. Through July 8.
UPDATE: This event has been postponed due to rain. A new date (another Saturday this summer) will be posted soon.
I will be leading a workshop on plant drawing this Sat May 12 at One Nature's garden center, at 321 Main St next to Binnacle Books. Stop by betw 3-7pm to enjoy their native habitat, drinks and snacks, live music, and community, or come draw plants with me 5-7pm. Free! Materials provided.
I will have some work at Catalyst Gallery, 137 Main, Beacon, for the 10th annual Beacon Open Studios weekend, April 28-29, 2018. There are 6 artists altogether, which means that Catalyst will be a must-see hot spot on the tour! Pick up a catalogue around town and see the BOS site for the artist list.
Hours are 12-6pm Sat and Sun. Stop by the kickoff party Fri April 27, 6-9pm at Oak Vino, 389 Main St.
Also in April is this Beacon Open Studios Alumni Show in which I have several new paintings, including the one on the left side of this postcard. I've participated in 7 of the 9 open studios so far, with this being my 8th. This show opens Sat April 14, 6-9 pm reception, at Big Mouth Coffee Roasters at 387 Main St.
I had a week in between shows at Catalyst in Feb and decided to hang these new Stacks paintings I've been working on. How fortunate to have a gallery handy so you can see your new work with some white space around it. A few are much larger sizes than I usually do, so it was very helpful. I didn't actually have open hours, but they were all visible from the street and looked like something bright and fun might be about to happen, or was happening somewhere else, which is how I often feel by late winter in New York.
I made these two paintings, 'A Grand Performance' (acrylic on canvas board, framed, 8"x10", based on vintage clip art) and 'Ritz Theater' (acrylic on wood, 6"x6", based on a restored theater in Ritzville, WA) for Stage'd, a fundraising exhibition on Thur March 15 at Towne Crier Cafe in Beacon. It was part of an event to raise money for BeaconArts and the Center For Creative Education. These charming little works are still available in my Etsy shop.
30"x48" acrylic on cradled panel, what I'm painting recently and I'm trying to get at why. Can't stop stacking? Color therapy? It's like taking chunks of my paintings and melting them down. But I also have no reference (except for the chocolate foil collages I made last year), and it feels odd but it's waking me up. In a typically dreary cold gray month, a (tiny) fluorescent light went on.
