While the pandemic may have slowed things down, I'm happy to be participating in three group shows.
American Landscapes 2020 at the Maryland Federation of Art Circle Gallery in Annapolis is open to works of all media depicting landscapes of the Americas. My photo, "Summer Solstice," has been accepted into this national juried exhibit. Opening date is August 13, 2020.
Personal Landscape, a mixed media exhibit by west Michigan artists, is OPEN for visitors at the Carnegie Center for the Arts in Three Rivers. The gallery is open limited hours, Tuesdays - Thursdays from 10-5. The exhibit runs until September 3. My piece in the show is called "Somewhere..."
After some delays, the 2020 West Michigan Area Show is now open at the Kalamazoo Institute of Art. This annual juried exhibition is open to work in all media from 14 Michigan counties. My piece in this year's exhibit is "Cosmic Egg." The show runs until October 4. The KIA is open to the public Friday's and Saturdays.
Below is my photo, The Fallen, which will soon be appearing in an exhibit of artwork reflecting on the environment. WE ARE THE EARTH/WE ARE THE PROBLEM/WE ARE THE SOLUTION will be going up in Kalamazoo College's UpJohn Library Commons in early March, running until about May 1.
My photo, "Ethereal Vessel" has been accepted into the 2020Abstracts Matter national juried exhibit hosted by the 311 Gallery in Raleigh, NC. The exhibit runs from 3/5/2020 - 3/28/2020 with a reception: 3/6/2020 7:00 - 9:00 PM.
I try to limit my work to three ongoing mega projects - Landscapes, Macro / Close Up work, and Abstracts. My abstracts are usually close ups of shadows cast on the wall or floor or sidewalk. This image sis in the third project line. The vessel was just a little spot of light that briefly hovered on the wall in my living room.
