"Tourist": off to a new home

Looks like I spoke too soon about “Tourist” coming back from New Jersey: it’s going to someone else’s home. I just got word a new patron purchased the collage!

(Bonus: I won’t have to pay any return shipping costs!) Again, many thanks to the Long Beach Island Foundation and exhibit juror Dr. Louis Marchesano of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The best part of this news is that I have more room in my studio to work on new pieces. Excuse me while I go make good use of this art mojo…

LBIF Works on Paper: coming home with honors

“Tourist” is a prize winner! My collage is heading home from New Jersey, after winning second prize in the LBIF “Works on Paper” exhibit. Look at the company I’m keeping these days…

Deep thanks to Dr. Louis Marchesano of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, who juried the show and selected the prize-winning pieces as well as those awarded honorable mentions.

While I’m waiting for “Tourist” to arrive, I’ll keep busy at the Kirkland Arts Center. “Fracture” opens tonight, the show that includes the “They Don’t Really Feel Pain” assemblage sculpture. Feels like I’m on a roll!

Art exhibit: "Tourist" in Jersey

If I can’t travel at the moment, at least my artwork is getting out and about! Later this month, you can see “Tourist” in New Jersey — at the Long Beach Island Foundation of Arts & Sciences.

In Loveladies, New Jersey, my collage will be shown in the “Works on Paper” exhibit. Dr. Louis Marchesano of the Philadelphia Museum of Art selected 68 pieces out of more than a thousand submissions: drawings and paintings, prints, paper constructions and more.

The month-long exhibit opens May 24th, right before Memorial Day, which sounds like the perfect weekend-at-the-shore to me. When you go to the exhibit, remember to tag me on Instagram or Facebook so I can share your photos!
