This is a group art show that I’m participating in, and what’s interesting is that the exhibition is running in conjunction with a music performance. There is an opening reception to the art show October 4th, and another reception October 24th. I will be at both openings, though I may have to leave early in the first one.

We drove the hundreds of miles from Los Angeles to Oregon to deliver the artwork for my solo show. We stayed at a Comfort Inn and woke up the next day for breakfast. As we were starting to get ready to leave, my cousin brought me this brochure. It was advertising upcoming shows for FireHouse Gallery among the other vacation brochures you find in a chain hotel. (You know, the pamphlets promoting theme parks and zoos.) Never in my strangest thoughts had I ever pictured myself in one of them.
Here are a few shots of the reception at Firehouse Gallery at Rogue Community College. (Yes, I got the 80 paintings there as promised.)
Here’s the official invitation from the upcoming exhibition. I’m actually taking the trip to be at the reception. If you’re in town, I’d love to see you.
Here are more finished paintings. My solo show at Firehouse Gallery at Rogue Community College will have its opening reception July 3rd.
Here are the some of the latest paintings that are going to be a part of the upcoming solo show at Firehouse Gallery at Rogue Community College.
July is the month my work travels to Oregon. The plan is for eighty paintings to make the voyage. This is adventure!
Memories from a Radio will show at the Firehouse Gallery at Rogue Community College from July 1 – 30, 2015. I will post more information as it comes.
The show came down over a week ago. A word of appreciation to all of you who were involved and for those of you that came to the reception. It was great to finally see the fruition of this direction in my work.
Memories from a Radio: Of Daughter’s Arrival and Father’s Farewell was dedicated to my dad, and already many of the memories represented in the paintings have slowly been taken over by the images in the paintings themselves. Since I often revisit a memory, I wonder what that means to the future paintings that come from the same memories.
It was a damn good year, and I have a feeling the next one will be even better. Happy New Year!
My solo show is fast upon us. Encapsulating my most recent work, these paintings focus on my becoming a father shortly before losing my own father. My father never met my daughter, but through the small gesture of this exhibition, they will meet in some sense. This show is dedicated to him.
