Various bits of news... exciting updates.

Thanks to all of you following these posts. A reminder that the Summer Show at Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery in Shelburne, VT continues through September 1, 2015. There is some gorgeous work in the show.

In other news: I recently won the gig to do the new public art for the Westminster Light Rail Station currently under construction just outside of Denver. This is part of the expansion of Denver's light rail system. I will be designing and installing a series of twelve windscreens for the station. Installation will be in July 2016. Stand by for images of the work as it develops.

And the date has been set for my upcoming show at the Alliance for Visual Art Gallery in Lebanon, NH. It will be June 10 - July 13, 2016. This is a wonderful space, and I will be showing a series of large paintings. Stand by for my details. 

Upcoming Exhibition

I will be the featured artist in the exhibition this summer at Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery in Shelburne, VT. I will be posting more details soon. Hoping if you are near by you can stop by.  The opening reception will be on July 17, 2015.

Mountain Brook, the painting finished?

And so here is the painting as of tonight after some hours of more work at the end of another studio day. The changes may be subtle, but they are critical to me to make the painting work. Bear in mind that all of these photos are shot with my cell phone, so not the highest quality. The piece is about 22 x 26", oil on canvas. When I am sure it is done, and I have shot a good photo of it, I will add it to the gallery page of paintings.

Mountain Brook, a later stage.

This is a version of the painting later at the end of another day after more work, more layers of glazes. Thought perhaps it was done at this point, but I can never tell until I come back into the studio with fresh eyes.

I am going to post 3 versions of this painting as it progresses. Mountain Brook. This is version one. These are quick cell phone photos

Two Upcoming Events

Two shows are up now, and there are associated events with both of them. I currently have a one person show up at the New Haven Lawn Club in New Haven, CT. I will be giving an artist talk on Tuesday, December 9 at 6 pm. It is free and open to the public. The coordinates are 193 Whitney Ave, New Haven, CT 06511.  The phone # is  (203) 777-3494.

I am also participating in a group show at the Painting Center in New York. There is an opening reception for this show on Friday evening, December 12. The show is a benefit to mark the Painting Center's 21st anniversary. The address is 547 W 27th St #500, New York, NY 10001. The telephone 3 is (212) 343-1060.

Upcoming Exhibitions

I have several exhibitions coming up. One is a one person show, and the other two are group shows. I will post more details of the latter two as the draw nearer. 

First is the Summer Group Show at Furchgott Sourdiffe Gallery, June 28- August 5 in Shelburne, VT. This is a small but lovely gallery close to Burlington. It is worth a visit. The address and a link to the gallery web site are the following:
86 Falls Rd.
Shelburne, Vt. 05482

Second, the soon to be opened Kent Museum in Calais, VT has its inaugural exhibition Reflections, September – October 2014 , which will coincide with American Craft Week, Open Studio Weekend, and Calais’ Fall Foliage Festival. For this exhibition the curators have invited a select group of authors, photographers, and visual artists to muse literally and figuratively within their medium upon the concept of reflections. Considering the actual return of light as inspiration or using internal thought as visual motivation are equal focuses for the exhibit. Reflective materials, highly polished surfaces, and mirrored or repeated imagery will enlighten visitors through an overt look at how art reflects life and how forms of thought bounce back. Check back for more details.

Finally, I will be having a one-person show at the New Haven Lawn Club in New Haven, CT (basically on the Yale campus) November - December. Check back for more details, as I will post the address, time of the opening reception, etc.
