Summer in the City

Hey Chicago! Come to the closing reception for PORTALS this Friday, July 21st. 
7-10pm at ACS Gallery (4th floor of the Zhou B Art Center)


Whatever city you happen to be in, I hope your summer is off to a beautiful start. I'll be spending most of mine in the studio, putting the finishing touches on a new series of pastels. Stay tuned for details on an upcoming show this fall!

SKETCH - upcoming show



Color Study #2 2015 oil on paper 11 1/8" x 11 1/8"

Color Study #2 was the second color study I made during my time as a Manifest Artist in Residence. I tend to make several preparatory drawings and painted studies before embarking on a more finished piece. These sketches usually only hang on my studio wall… but occasionally, they have an immediacy and a presence that lets them stand on their own as resolved pieces, independent of the “finished” piece.

I'm honored to have this piece included in the upcoming exhibition SKETCH at Manifest Gallery!

SKETCH runs in tandem with IN MEMORIAM.
July 14th-August 11th
Opening reception: Friday July 14th, 6-9pm

IN MEMORIAM - Upcoming Show



Little Green 2017 oil on canvas 16x20"

Little Green is part of my current body of work, exploring the residue in both my studio and the drawing center where I teach. The missing hinge is a metaphor for other gaps or absences in our lives; the radiant green revealed beneath the whitewash is a reminder of the profound rewards in seeking beneath the obvious or outward appearance of things. Paying attention to the little things matters.

Come see this piece in person at Manifest Gallery!

IN MEMORIAM
July 14-August 11, 2017
Opening reception: Friday July 14th, 6-9pm

PORTALS


Save the date! 
PORTALS
a group exhibition at ACS Gallery
curated by Samantha Haring
Opening: June 16, 2017

Art transports us from our everyday lives into worlds unknown. Images have the unique ability to take us out of ourselves and show us something new. This exhibition examines the power of place in artwork through a variety of media. Whether abstract or representational, these pieces create windows into other worlds as seen, imagined, or envisioned by the artists.
