It’s been a busy summer with two solo gallery exhibits in the rearview mirror and the show of my work which is currently hanging at the Fenimore Art Museum. But there’s no time to put it on autopilot and cruise. I have a busy fall schedule with two more solo shows upcoming, one in October at the Kada Gallery in Erie, PA and the other in early December at the Just Looking Gallery in San Luis Obispo, CA. I am pretty excited about both of these shows and will provide details on the California show later.
But first up is the Kada Gallery show, one that I do every other year. This Erie gallery is ran by Kathy and Joe DeAngelo, two of the most wonderful people I have been lucky enough to stumble across in this business. They make you feel incredibly welcome the moment you walk in their gallery. Kathy takes great interest in the artwork and tries to gather as much info about each painting that I bring, wanting to be able to provide potential collectors with any detail that they might desire. From an artist’s standpoint, she’s a dream representative for my work– someone who connects with it and radiates an enthusiasm for it.
The show this year is titled Inward Bound and opens on Saturday, October 20 with an evening reception at the Erie gallery. There will be a short gallery talk at the beginning of the reception. I hope if you’re in the Erie region that night that you can stop in and say hello. I think this will be a really good show. The piece shown above is a smaller piece from this show, a 5″ by 8″ painting on paper, that is titled Hope on High.
