New Year update
Thanks to Jen Meanley and University of North Carolina Greensboro for sponsoring Griffonage, an exhibition of many of my 2017 paintings. 2017 was a tough year for many of us, but I must acknowledge it was at least good for the studio and good for shows. Hoping 2018 brings more of the good.
Ian Hagarty, Matthew Choberka and I will band together once again for (un)tacit, this time at The Provincial, a truly beautiful art space in Kaleva, MI, run by artists Melanie Parke and Richard Kooyman. The exhibition will be on view starting August 5, with reception on August 10, 5pm. I just posted documentation of new, mostly smallish work, much of which is bound for that exhibition.
Still on track for a solo show this fall at University of North Carolina Greensboro - more details soon!
Paintings have been making the rounds in early 2017 - thank you to Drawl ('North of South'), OBU ('Abstract ARt' strikes again), & The Madison Bubbler / MPL ('Untacit'). My cohort for 'Untacit' (Ian Hagarty & Matt Choberka) will reunite late in the summer for a show at The Provincial, in Kaleva, MI, and a solo show is in the works for November in North Carolina. More details as the dates approach.
If you're in Tulsa, be sure to stop by the Henry Zarrow Center for Art and Education. I have some paintings included in the final installment of Abstract ARt, featuring works by Arkansas-based (or Arkansas-born) artists. Steven Wise (fellow exhibitor and exhibition organizer) and I will give lectures at the Zarrow Center at noon on Friday, Feb 12.
Last month, I moved into a new studio on the Fayetteville square. Finally getting settled in and working on some new large-scale paintings.
Two upcoming shows:
Luck of the Draw, a work on paper show curated by Trent Miller. Really excited to be included among this group of artists! January 8 - Feb 26, 2016, the Diane Endres Ballweg Gallery (located inside the Madison Public Library) in Madison, WI.
Sending the painting above (Armature, 2015) to Prince Street Gallery's 8th Annual Juried Exhibition, curated by Graham Nickson. Feb 2 - 27, 2016, 530 West 25th St, New York.

I'll give a visiting artist lecture at the Mt Gretna School of Art on July 14.
Just opted into OPP's new site options. To better optimize the new template, I've combined the painting galleries, and replaced the video gallery with a link to my vimeo account page (see links tab).
