Thank you, Aurora Sentinel

and writer Adam Goldstein for the nice write-up of my monotype show at Red Delicious Press. It was a much more generous use of ink than I was expecting. You spelled my name right, and everything after that is icing on the cake.

To those who think I may be squirrelly: You may be right, but press releases are well worth the twenty minutes it takes you. I am no worshipper of Mammon:

 

But neither do I want to hide whatever feeble light I may possess under a bushel.

The Rat within the Grain

The closing weekend of my show at CORE New Art Space – entwined with my four friends and fellow artists Meg Voigt Meersman, Terri Bell, Jon Koenigsberg and Lokken Liane, is approaching. Our last weekend will coincide with the popular Denver Art District on Santa Fe’s First Friday Art Walk. I am grateful to Susan Froyd for writing about the show on the Westword Blog, here.

I was skeptical when Terri Bell proposed that we mix our work together and hang it as a single exhibit. I usually feel that my work coordinates poorly with other people’s work. I always look like the turd in the punch bowl, the rat within the grain. Her instinct were right, though- the show is wonderful and I think it’s the best looking exhibit in which I’ve ever taken part. Thank you, Terri. I will not doubt your aesthetic premonitions again, and we at CORE are so fortunate to have you with us.

I am also grateful to Pat Cronin for inviting me to take part in the “Creatures” show, opening on First Friday on the other side of town at Zip 37 Gallery.
