I will be giving an Artist Talk at Sidestreet Arts (Portland, OR) on 8-11-19. I’ll talk about the inspiration for “Closer to Home,” as well as the muses and symbolism in the artwork. There will be delicious brunchy foods and drinks. Talk starts at 1pm, but if you are one of a dozen visitors to come at noon, you’ll get one of my zines!
Here’s the SE Examiner’s blurb on the matter… courtesy of Brian… Thank you, Brian! You all are awesome over there!
I’m “Closer to Home” … on July 31st, with an opening reception on August’s First Friday, I will have all new mixed media and acrylic paintings in the main featured gallery. There are twenty brand new pieces along with some fantastic new work by Portland ceramicist, Nicole M. Curcio.
This show deals with my changing relationship to Portland; from a tourist destination, to home, to muse, I examine the things that make Portland Portland, and also … my new home.
Opening Reception: Friday Aug 2, 2019 from 6-9 pm.
It is Fall… and we are falling into the First Friday of Fall at Sidestreet Arts. As per usual, we are reception-izing on Friday, October 5th from 6-9 pm at the gallery. Delicious treats, adult beverages and hobnobbing served up cheerfully.

… expression is the conveyor belt of art… or is it the other way around?
