I'm now represented in the Bay Area by Jen Tough Gallery in Benicia. I'm looking forward to working with Jen. I just finished a painting titled, "The Wait of Fear," and she'll be taking it to Art Santa Fe, July 12 -15. My work will also be included in a couple upcoming group exhibitions with her other artists. I'm scheduled for a solo exhibit in October of 2019 so I'm excited and gearing up even if it's a ways off.
Had a couple nice studio visits this month with artists Mark Perlman in Sebastopol and Mark Bowles in Sacramento.
These two pieces are headed to Dominican University in San Rafael for a group show with:
Michael Arcega, Kimberley Arteche, Francis Calimlim, Cece Carpio, Mik Gaspay, Rea Lynn de Guzman,
Johanna Poethig, Sherwin Rio, Lordy Rodriguez, Charlene Tan, O.M.France Viana, Pamela Ybañez,
Catherine Wagner, Jenifer Wofford
Flew into Albuquerque Friday then drove to Santa Fe. It’s a long and funny story meeting Deborah Fritz and George on my way back from Bemis, but I’m now represented in Santa Fe. Friday was the Grand Opening of Gallery Fritz in the Railyard, Santa Fe, NM.
I finally met artists, Joe Ramiro Garcia, Greg Tucker and saw my good friend and master printer Wynden Cadden. I’ve known her since we had studios at the Coal Shed on Mare Island in Vallejo in 2004. Talk about serendipity, I met a good friend from my Fresno State days, Constanza, who married African American Playwright, August Wilson. She lives in Seattle, but just happened to walk in because her sister lives in Santa Fe. Small world, ha!
Great crowd and fun evening! Congrates Deborah, George, Stephen and Lilly!!
Friday, June 8th is the Grand Opening of Gallery Fritz in Santa Fe's Railyard. So I decided to go out there. Will post some pics of the opening!! This is an ad in THE Magazine.
I think I finished the painting I started at Bemis (on the left) so now I need to deal with the other one!
This is a photo from George at Gallery Fritz in Santa Fe. They installed STAYSIS, the painting I did at Bemis. I'll be heading out to Santa Fe for the inaugural opening on June 8th.
On June 1st I had a reception for my show at Fourth Wall in Oakland. It was nice to see and be supported by so many friends. If you haven't seen the work, it'll be up till July 7th.
I only have one more painting to restretch from the work I created at Bemis. It's a real pain in the ass to do, but I'm anxious to get them finished and out of the studio!
We stopped by Imagery Wine this weekend to sample the wine and see the painting that I did for them. It's on a wine label. Pretty good stuff and fun to see the work there.
Staysis, the 8' X 12" painting I did at Bemis will be heading to Santa Fe this Wednesday. More to come soon!!
