I’m very pleased that selections from my Bitter Chill series will be on view in the Mayor's Art Gallery on the fifth floor of Boston City Hall. Seen for the first time in a governmental setting, the show urges visitors to City Hall to reflect upon the responsibility and trust given to our elected representatives, and also the power of the collective moral will wielded by the citizens who elected them. Many thanks to curator John Crowley and the city’s Department of Arts and Culture.
I will be collaborating with curator Debbie Disston at the Southern New Hampshire University to exhibit the entire Bitter Chill painting series at the excellent McIninch Gallery on campus. I am excited for the paintings to inspire discussion and reflection among the students and the wider Manchester community!
3:00 - 4:00 PM
Due to high interest, Alpha Gallery and I have decided to add an artist talk on the Bitter Chill paintings near the culmination of the exhibition. I'll share deeper background to the series, and discuss its development and execution. Please consider yourself invited! The show runs through 10/31/18.
Opening Reception Friday October 5, 6-8PM
I am again grateful that Alpha Gallery will be presenting my fourth solo show with them this coming October. The series, Bitter Chill, combines winter landscape and historical quotes from the American canon to comment upon the icy morals of our current presidential administration.
I am honored to be featured on the Massachusetts Cultural Council blog, ArtSake, for its "Studio Views" series. I had a chat with the MCC's Dan Blask about the paintings in my solo show, All the Gifts, and shared images from my painting process and studio.
Opening Reception Friday October 7, 6-8PM
I am very pleased that Alpha Gallery will be presenting my first solo show in Boston in four years this October. The new paintings have emerged from a period following an encounter with serious illness, and explore fatherhood, gratitude and hope.
The Portrait Society of America awarded my painting, "Moonstone," a Certificate of Excellence at its 18th Annual International Portrait Competition earlier this spring. I was one of 35 artists recognized out of over 2,400 for this honor. I'm very grateful my first attempt at a developed portrait earned such good recognition!
