Accepted for Exhibition – National Juried: Attleboro MA Arts Museum

I’ll be among artists from 23 states invited to exhibit in the Attleboro MA Arts Museum 2017 national juried gallery opening June 15 .  Two pieces entered, one taken.  In all, ~125 works will be part of the “LINE” exhibition as curated by Kelly Bennett, Massachusetts Cultural Council program officer.  Theme celebrates all aspects of “the…

Juried in… Edmonds WA art festival gallery exhibition

  Two pieces accepted for the annual event… oldest art festival in the state of Washington (50+ years operating).  Will be displayed as part of the 3D juried gallery – somewhat unique rather than being lumped in w/2D works.  Separate awards just for 3D works so hoping I show well v. competition.   This makes…

Gallery Exhibition Opens…

Made the trip from Colorado to Virginia to attend the Fredericksburg gallery opening, Textures and Patterns.  Spent an enjoyable evening with artists, staff and juror David White.  Best of all… was one of 13 award winners and sold one of the two pieces juried into the exhibition. Special thanx to curator Carol Morgan for her…

Going big…

Continuing to experiment with larger, more “sculptural” elements as a way to broaden my portfolio to become more interesting to gallery/exhibition juries for display and sale.  Below is the latest effort – using a technique called “split bowl” construction.  Essentially, a single platter is turned on the lathe and then sliced in half.  The two…

Going small…

After notching a retail showcase at Squash Blossom (very cool gallery story in Colorado Springs), I’m gearing up for an inventory build.  One additional ask (it’s retail, after all…) was for a lower end price point.  So – here’s the first of my new “SMALLS” series, pieces that are ~4″ diameter.  The plan is to…

Milestone step up

…so in January, I tried a technique for burning-in the basket design that actually was NOT burning in the “spoke” lines prior to executing the creative direction.  Just couldn’t get it done.  Last night (4 months later), I took another stab at the technique and success!  This technique results in a more elegant refinement in…

Ice blue… experimenting with white…

New one… First time going down the “blue-tone” road;  plus, added white India ink for the first time.  I’m liking the outcome.  Gotta explore white more.  Used this one just now for a submission to the Philadelphia Museum of Art event next November.  Was one of five examples I sent in under the category “Emerging…

Stepping it up…

Using a great “entry” site… JuriedArtServices to pre-load portfolio and details for gallery/exhibition submissions.  Here’s a snapshot of how the digital imagery gets configured.  Slick.

New pieces from the mountain top…

A few of the new pieces coming out of my Colorado studio.  So grateful to my Karen for supporting my turning time…      

Western Design Conference – Booth in my future…

OK… with encouragement from Karen and friends D&D… going to commit to doing a retail 10×10 at the Western Design Conference in Jackson Hole WY this coming September.  Crazy commitment, both $$ as well as work/inventory that will be needed.  Super help from event manager, Allison in selecting booth location (got a corner spot) and…
