In the interest of "simplifying things" I had fully intended to back off on everything especially in participating in too many art shows this holiday season. However, much to my surprise it looks like I managed to do just the opposite in this regard! Below is a list of places that I will be showing work. One nice thing about each of these venues is that all I had to do was show up with my work and someone else took it from there (doing all the hard work of hanging it, displaying, and minding “the store” or more accurately “the gallery”.) Compared to doing art festivals this makes one feel quite pampered! Most of these venues except for the show at Orazio Salati’s Gallery are mainly prints and greeting cards.
As a participant in “A Holiday Group Exhibition” at the Orazio Salati Studio and Gallery I will be showing about 10 original mixed media paintings which will open on First Friday, Dec. 6 from 6-9 pm in Binghamton, NY. The show will feature the work of 7 artists (digital drawings and paintings, photography, woven digital imagery, pottery, jewelry, and mixed media painting.) For more information you can visit www.oraziosalati.com. Among the pieces on display are some that reflect my latest experiments with acrylic mediums and animal imagery (see “Detail of Spirit Tree and Deer”). I hope you will join us on First Friday this coming month!*
You’ll also find framed prints, matted prints, and greeting cards for sale at the following locations:
