Selections 2017


I'm happy to announce that my work will be part of this year's ArtSpan SELECTIONS and on display at the ArtSpan Gala on Saturday, February 11, at Heron Arts in San Francisco.

This is a true San Francisco Gala, and if you can still get tickets it's highly recommended. Tickets start at $300 and proceeds support all ArtSpan programs. There will also be a free artist reception on Sunday.

I'll be in superb company- among this year's Selections artists are Catherine Mackey, Rodney Ewing, Carlo Abruzzese, Randy Beckelheimer and my Revere Studio colleagues Vince Koloski and Lea Feinstein.

I hope to see you there!

Salton Sea - new series 2016

These paintings depict residences from the Salton Sea, a California desert town 2.5 hours outside of Los Angeles. Once a thriving mid-century resort destination, the community is vibrant with architectural vestiges from a different era. In this series simple prefab homes take center stage and are treated like the subjects of straight angle portraits where unique combinations of shapes, materials and colors converge.

We are going to Hollywood

I am getting ready for the
LA StARTup ArtFair, January 27 - 29 2017

WE ARE GOING TO HOLLYWOOD!!

I'm so excited I was selected to participate! I'll be showing with 35 great artists from all over, and it is going to be at a very special place: The infamous Highland Gardens Hotel in Hollywood.

From the ArtFair website:

"The Highland Gardens Hotel, a chic 1950’s era hotel (formerly known as the Landmark Motor Hotel), was a magnet for rock n’ roll elite in its former days, and today continues to be a beacon of old Hollywood glamour. The hotel maintains its renegade spirit, and its reputation as a playground for the artistic. Fair attendees may recognize the hotel from the 2004 documentary Camp Hollywood, its infamous connection to Janis Joplin, and the steady stream of famed and aspiring talents moving through its doors. Through its rich legacy and cultural connection, the Highland Gardens Hotel provides the perfect backdrop for stARTup Art Fair Los Angeles’s artist exhibitors to showcase their work."

More info soon.

If you have friends in LA, let them know we are coming. If you can make it down there, do it! You won't be disappointed, I promise.
