Summer Update

I want to thank everyone in Cincinnati, Columbus and Worthington who braved the summer heat last month to celebrate Art! Having three big shows in almost as many weeks was hectic and exhausting but also exhilarating. I really look forward to meeting people and discussing my favorite subject - Art - both in general and mine too. Then after the whirlwind I get to go home and do it. Wow!

I brought back a lot of ideas and excitement to put into new work, including some inspired by my time in Columbus. My next shows are in Sept. & Oct. so this month and next I will be very busy and covered in paint (somehow I get it everywhere), but in the meantime I have pieces in shows at the Mary Rezney Gallery in Lexington, Ky, as well as Mohawk Gallery and Xavier University Gallery in Cincinnati. Of course I am always at Final Friday nights at Pendleton Art Center with a selection of work and usually a new painting or two also. Hope to see you there

- now back to the basement!

New Paintings Coming Soon!

Happy New Year! I wish the best for everyone in the coming year. I have been putting the final "polish" on several new paintings which I am excited to share - I will post them on the site soon. I have also been applying to a number of art shows for the 2017 season and am hoping to be included in some new ones a little further afield from Cincinnati. Stay tuned! In the meantime, please stop in at the Pendleton Art Center here in town on the Final Fridays gallery openings to visit and see some of my new work.

Exciting new venue!

I have joined the "Studio 313" Group of artists at the Pendleton Art Center. I will be showing a selection of my works on the "Final Friday" open studio nights at the end of each month, and I hope to have something new for each show. The Pendleton building, a 1909 former shoe warehouse, now houses over 200 artists and has been an art hotspot for over 20 years. Located at 1310 Pendleton St., Cincinnati OTR. Final Friday hours: 6-10pm.

Hope you can make it! A lot of great art!

On Sunday Dec. 11,  I will once again be showing with Art-On-Vine at the Rhinegeist Brewery, also a historic treasure in Cincinnati OTR , located at 1910 Elm St. The expanded exhibit space will feature art and artistic gifts as well as excellent beer!

"Show's over,  back on the bus!"

Thanks to everyone who came out to see my solo show at Thomas More, and for all the support and input. I am working to finish a couple of new paintings for the outdoor shows this fall and I hope anyone who missed the gallery can come to:

Vinoklet Art & Wine Festival at the vineyard in Colerain Township,  Sat. & Sun. Sept. 10, 11. A beautiful setting in the vineyards, great food and wine + Art! What more can you ask for?

Pyramid Hill Art Fair on Rt. 128 near Hamilton OH, Sat. & Sun. Sept. 24, 25. Another great setting! A sculpture park in a wooded natural landscape - it's a new show for me and I am excited to be included. My wife Colleen will also be there with her beautiful paintings on wood. There is a fee to enter the park though.

Finally the Hyde Park Square Art Show celebrates 50 years around Hyde Park Square in Cincinnati, Sun. Oct 2.  I have a great spot on the main square. Hope you can come!
