Wow, umm . . . yeah, so my last post was in April. I knew I had been neglecting the blog, but good lord, that is a long time. Okay, I will catch everybody up to speed.
The WAM event with the Bossier Arts Council went well. It was a great night with a healthy number in attendance. The food, wine, and music were fantastic. I appreciate all of you who attended.
I have been working like crazy building panels in May, and painting in June. I have finished out the month of June with 15 new paintings on panel. My total number for the year so far is 61. Here are a few of them, but the rest will be posted on the website.
I’m excited about two upcoming exhibitions. The first on the calendar is the opening of The Agora Borealis. The owners of this new venue have some fantastic plans for their store and I’m flattered that they have selected a couple of my pieces to have on show during their grand opening. It’ll be nice to have a space here in North Louisiana that will have some of my work on a regular basis. I can’t wait to see the effect that they have on the art market in Shreveport.
The next exhibition in line will be a group show curated by Robert Pincus featuring Taffie Garsee, Rachel Stuart-Haas, and myself. Pincus is an accomplished art critic and I’m excited to see how he pulls all of our work together. Once the exhibition opens August 7th, it will be followed by a critic’s symposium on the 8th and 9th featuring some prominent figures from the art world. I’ll divulge the parties involved once the official announcement has been made. If you’re around the area during those dates you should really take the time to attend the symposium. I’m sure it will be interesting.
