Opening night for the Austin People’s Gallery 2020 collection is this Friday, March 6th from 6-9PM. This piece from the In The Clouds collection will be on display in Austin’s City Hall for the next 9 months.
I’ll be hanging near my piece on the 2nd floor. Come by, say hi, and checkout art from hundreds of Austin artists. The Austin’s City Hall is at 301 W 2nd Street.
February 13th marks the 9th consecutive year that I am premiering new art in Florida at the Nudenite Pop Up Art Experience. This show continues to present my work to the growing community of people collecting my art.
The Orlando show runs February 13th – 15th and the Tampa show is February 27th – 29th. The show includes art in its many forms including interactive installations and performance pieces. I am exhibiting these two pieces in this dynamic experience. Of course, I used no digital manipulation in creating these pieces.
Portland Oregon’s Verum Ultimum Art Gallery show “A Generous Kingdom” opening reception is Saturday January 11th from 6:00 – 8:00. Observing Cloud Connections from my “In The Clouds” collection was selected to be part of the show which focuses on symbolism, story, & beyond. This will be the first time that Portland’s art patrons can see my work in one of their galleries. Thanks to the two artists appearing in this piece for bringing this idea to life. More pieces like this can be found on my website.
Kansas City Missouri’s Jones Gallery is exhibiting Duo Quattuorduring their January show. This piece is part of my “Foreign Worlds” collection. It was created in Austin featuring two fellow artists. The Jones Gallery show opens this Friday, January 3rd, with an event from 5:00 – 9:00. This is the first time Kansas City’s art patrons will be able to see my work in person.
Here are a few photographs
from last week’s work. I was thinking about the Greek philosopher
Diogenes when I created the starting point for the day’s work. My 8th grade
algebra teacher introduced him to me by recounting one of his stunts. From time
to time, Diogenes apparently carried a lit lamp during the day looking for an
honest person. All images were created on set, no digital manipulation required.
First Looks are my initial reactions. It usually takes days or weeks before I’m comfortable deciding if something makes the cut. Editing, selecting which pieces make it and which ones don’t, is one of the most difficult parts of the process. The images you see here are either ones that might be finished or inspire ideas worth pursuing.
