July Open Studio

Last month, I was still working on Cosmic Oceanand it was still untitled. Now it's finished and ready for a collector's wall. The best way to fully appreciate the depth of the metallic pigments I used is to see it in person at my next open studio.

Here's a preview of the new painting I'm working on. You can't tell from this photo, but unlike everything I've made before, this painting is round! I hope to have it finished by the night of my next open studio. I will also have copies of my new art book, The Sum of its Parts, available if you want to buy a signed copy.

Artist Talk - Witness: The Artist's Response

Anitra Frazier, Levi Yutuc, Mark Nelson, Brian Dovie Golden,Tyesha Moores, Kristin Cass, Melissa Romeo, Michael Foster, Jennifer Cronin and I will be discussing our work in the Witness: The Artist's Response show.  You will have an opportunity to ask us about our art in the Q&A session following the talk.

Space is limited so be sure to arrive 20-30 minutes early to get a seat. There will be limited additional standing room. In order to raise more funds for all of the artist's charities, we are asking for a $3 donation for the talk. The funds will be added to the donations from opening night and will be split up amongst all of the charities chosen by the artists. More information is available in the gallery.

Witness: The Artist's Response is a group exhibition of artwork relating to current political, cultural and social constructs. The gallery put out an open call and encouraged artists to submit work that personally responds to the present climate as it relates to the past, present or future. With this exhibition, we want to provide a platform for artists to be heard and make a difference. That is why each artist has chosen a non-profit to pair up with and 10% of the sales of their artwork will be donated to that organization.
