Artexpo New York City

Washington, DC’s Gallery NK has been representing me at special art fairs outside of town. I was one of a handful of their artists to exhibit at Artexpo New York City on pier 94.  Held during April 14-17, the event drew designers, collectors, and art enthusiasts.

I very much like the way Gallery NK displayed a selection of my new Corrected Vision paintings — all 36″x36″ acrylic on canvas.  Because the gallery boasts a collection of very talented, skilled, and innovative artists from around the world, I consider myself fortunate to be showcasing my own work with them.

In addition to myself, exhibiting artists included Steffen Faisst, Nihal Kececi (Gallery NK owner), Julia Hacker, Alfredo Palmero, Thomas Dodd.

My thanks to Nihal Kececi of Gallery NK for the support and expert assistance in exhibiting at these world class international fairs.

Just a reminder:

Susan Calloway Fine Arts represents me exclusively in the Washington, DC area. 

Located in the heart of Georgetown at 1643 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC, the Gallery graciously welcomes my exhibiting in other local venues from time to time for special exhibits.  She also has arranged for some artwork to be used temporarily by local decorators. 

Bottom line, you can see a number of my pieces right now at Susan Calloway’s.   And, many of the paintings on my website and on this blog are available through Susan Calloway Fine Arts (

Check out this cool video of my solo exhibit, “Mixed Messages” at The Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center in Frederick, MD.  Great venue, great staff, great volunteers.  I am so honored to have been selected for a solo exhibit at this fabulous institution dedicated to the arts. The exhibit features ten paintings — all big heads.

Videographer George L. Miller collaborated with me on this film and I want to thank him for all his suggestions and for his keen professionalism.

Working In The Studio

Getting a workout painting this 72″ x 84″ canvas.  Up and down on the step ladder, mixing large batches of paint, and wielding wide brushes — all part of a vigorous day.  When finished, this piece will form a key visual element in my upcoming solo at Delaplaine Visual Arts Education Center, Frederick, MD.  The main gallery space is huge, with high ceilings to easily accommodate this big boy.

Hope you can see the completed painting and join us for the opening reception on September 5, 2015, 3-5 pm.  Exhibit dates September 5-27. 

I am represented by Susan Calloway Fine Arts in Washington, DC.


New for Upcoming Solo Shows

Working on some new pieces for upcoming solo exhibits in September at Susan Calloway Fine Arts in Washington, DC’s Georgetown and at Delaplaine Arts Center in Frederick, MD.  While still pondering on an appropriately ambiguous title for the Calloway exhibit, the title for Delaplaine is “Mixed Messages.”   I think it apt, because we send out the message we want people to receive, yet our body language or tone can communicate a completely different message.  The recipient must draw his or her own interpretation of those sometimes “mixed messages.”

In the final analysis, aren’t we all a little confused from time to time?
