I’m in a few more shows this fall – very exciting!

Fort Worth Biennial 2022 at Arts Fort Worth

The outbreak of Covid put the kibosh on the previous Biennial. Of the three pieces I entered for this year’s Fort Worth Biennial, I was especially happy the juror,  Lilia Kudili, chose “Programming Man.” It’s a big painting and has almost everyone of my favorite things to paint: my messy bedroom with wrinkly bedding, quilts, one of my sons, and multiple cats.

I originally showed this at my solo show, Then and Now, in the fall of 2020 and (because of Covid) not a lot of folks got a chance to see it. Now it’s back if you missed it before. Opening is on Saturday, September 10 (Fall Gallery Night in Fort Worth) and will be up through October 3.

CCAN 2022: Center for Contemporary Arts National Juried Competition

The Center for Contemporary Arts in Abilene, Texas, is housed in a great space and is a vibrant community of artists.
