In Georgetown, Susan Calloway Fine Arts has been featuring my solo exhibit Inner/Outer this September and October. Lots of media buzz from the Washington Post’s Mark Jenkins and Ari Post writing for The Georgetowner.
A few words about the show. Drips, re-stated lines, contrasting color and visible brushwork all help convey the tension and ambiguity that form my signature style. In approaching the subject of the face and the human body, I respond to the feelings behind the facade to suggest resolve, fear, pride, frailty or other emotion. My goal is to suggest a kind of chaos that invites viewers to make their own interpretation. These paintings might best be described as coping with turmoil…Like modern life.
Had an interesting and fun November 7 opening for my show of 13 artworks at The Arts Club of Washington. President James Monroe occupied this gorgeous, stately, historic residence and held the inaugural ball upstairs. It is a Washington, DC gem. Curator Erich L. Keel, Head of Education at the Kreeger Museum (Emeritus), made remarks and I had an opportunity to say a few words, too, along with fellow exhibitors Bob Tetro and Jane Godfrey. Hard to tell from these photographs, but it was a huge turnout.
My thanks to the ever-gracious Gallery Director Nichola Hays for her support and expertise. The exhibit is open to the public through November 29. Check it out:

In May and June 2014 I was teamed up with fellow artist Susan Makara for “Vivid” a two-artist exhibit at BlackRock Center for the Arts in Germantown, MD. What a fabulous building with tall walls, space to breathe, and high windows. It really showed off the artwork to full advantage. Our show a fine review by Washington Post art critic Mark Jenkins.
Thanks to Gallery Director Anne Burton and Executive Director Krista Bradley for the opportunity and for their support. In addition, my appreciation to the members of the Germantown Art League for hanging and staffing the opening reception.
