Fall exhibitions

On view in "Good Wonder" at ASU

This time of year has become like harvest time for me. The new ideas that I grew in the spring and summer are bearing fruit in the form of exhibitions. Tonight the Biennial opens at Five Points Gallery in Torrington, CT. If you're in the area, it promises to be a strong showing of 60 artists working in diverse media.

In two weeks time, "Good Wonder" will open at ASU's Gallery 100 located in the university's Tempe campus.  Curated by ASU gallery director, Grant Vetter, the exhibit explores themes of mysticism, sensory and environmental phenomenon, spectacle, and the metaphysical. (All of which is kind of "my bag" as it were.)

This week I also packed up drawings and sent them to Boston for exhibition. A selection of work from my small format sketchbook drawings will be part of an installation at Liquid Art House located in the Back Bay. Another diminutive work, at 8 x 10", will be part of this year's Hallspace Drawing Project at Hallspace Gallery in Dorchester, MA. That show opens August 21 with a reception on September 2 from 3 to 6 pm.

If that's enough for you, the PrattMWP faculty show will be installed at the end of this month in the school's new-to-it gallery space at Fountain Elms. I anticipate showing some garden paintings. The show opens September 8 from 5 to 7. The opening is usually well attended and buzzing with the energy of the new year. Come join us!

In other news, my newest series of work has gotten a mention by Ann Landi of Vasari21; and now I am busy framing pieces for collectors who have made purchases from the series. Keep your eyes open at TD Originals and ODV wines for one of the drawings. It should be framed and shipped in a month.
