'Adorned' art show in LA

'Adorned' is my newest art exhibit opening Saturday, November 19th 2011 from 7-10pm in Los Angeles.  I am showing alongside two very talented ladies, Erin Ashford and Renee Fontana. Both the ladies joined me in my solo show, 'Head over Heels' at Cassel Gallery in San Francisco, CA. The show was such a success that Cassel Gallery and Goorin Bros. asked that we show again in their Melrose Hat Shop. We will be displaying new work as well as a few pieces from our last show. I am looking forward to working with these ladies once again and to expanding our audience to Southern California!

'Spectrum' art opening at Fabric 8

I recently submitted my painting, 'Time', for a juried group exhibition of works addressing color at Fabric 8 Gallery . The title of the show is 'Spectrum', and the pieces in were chosen from 150 submissions, and feature artists Amandalynn, Ben Needham, David Ball, David Garvey, Geoff Campen, Jessica Eastburn, Ken Keirns, Mike Kimball, and St. Monci.

Exploring the spectrum of color as well as a spectrum of subject matter – from geometry and texture to illustration and portraiture – the show covers the breadth of fabric8’s program while also featuring artists that haven’t shown there regularly. The jury consisted of several painters that the gallery works with frequently.
Simultaneously, new pieces will be introduced in the sculpture garden from artists Calvin Ma, Shadoe Delgado, and Erika Sanada.

Spectrum will be on exhibit from October 14 through November 7
The opening reception will be held on Friday, October 14, from 7PM until 10PM.

For, Against, and the Truth

I was invited by Stormie Mills , an amazing artist and friend of mine, to join in on a group show that he is curating at the Linton and Kay Gallery in Perth, Western Australia. Each artist was asked to depict three different parts of their 'self'. The first perspective being how you see yourself, another being how you think others see you, and an honest account of yourself, a 'naked' truth of who you are. Obviously a difficult challenge for an artist, I chose to use one of my favorite models to express the emotions of these three different states of being. Each piece is painted in acrylic and varnish on antique mirrors.  I am very honored to have been chosen to be a part of this show and to show amongst such talented artists.

Opening night is Thursday, October 20, 2011 at Linton and Kay Gallery

participating artists include:
Darren Henderson (Melbourne), Jade Palmer (Melbourne), Amandalynn (San Francisco),
Jaybo Monk (Berlin), John Fekner (NYC), Jordan Seiler (NYC),
Kenton Parker (Los Angeles),
Marco Grassi (Milan), Matt Doust (Perth), Remi Rough (London)
