Exhibitions: Four of my most “controvesial” paintings will be part of Apocalyspe, U.S.A. at the Columbia College Library, 624 S. Michigan, Chicago, IL. The exhibit will run through the month of March. I'll be part of a panel discussion on March 8th from 6-8pm.
I'm having a pop-up exhibit. The Midnight Broadcast will be on display at 1100 Florence, Evanston, IL, from April 13th through the 15th. The opening reception will be on Friday, April 13th from 6-9pm. I'll also be hosting an artist talk/mirror drawing demonstration on Sunday, April 15th from 3-4pm. Hope you can make it.
With the second edition of Unpresidented: Art in Common Cause is in the books, we are turning our attention to securing non-profit status. I’ll post more information when we host a new event. Please visit the Art in Common Cause website for more infomation.
I am part of a traveling group show called “The Art of Influence: Breaking Criminal Traditions.” The show’s next venue is the Gallery at Penn College, Pennsylvania College of Technology, Williamsport, PA, from January 15th, 2019 to February 28th, 2019. I’ll post more details as they become available. The exhibition was previously on display at: the Human Rights Institute Gallery at Kean University, Union, NJ; the Bridgeport Art Center, Chicago; the Schoenherr Gallery at North Central College, Naperville, IL; The Art Center, Highland Park, IL; the Beverly Art Center, Chicago; and the Kent College of Law, IIT-Chicago.
Other news: I gave a curator talk as part of the Unpresidented:Art in Common Cause pop-up exhibit. I've finished editing it and wanted to share it. I've separated it into three easy to digest parts:
Part 1 – History
Part 2 – Goals
Part 3 – Q & A
A year or so ago, I wrote a short film script called
Two-Bit Faust. Since it’s unlikely I’ll be producing it any time soon, I’ve serialized the three scenes on my blog. Hope you enjoy it.
In addition, I published a short catalog entitled “Masks and Other Stories.” It features many of strongest small paintings I’ve made in the past several years. I’ve posted curator Chuck Gneich’s introduction on my blog page. The catalog is available for preview and purchase through Blurb here.
