The Beginning of Everything: An Exhibition of Drawings

Katherine E. Nash Gallery, University of Minnesota

Drawing is, in many ways, the most versatile of all artistic mediums. It can serve as the beginning of an idea, the beginning of a more ambitious project, or the beginning of a completed artwork unto itself. Because drawing is so elemental, so direct, such a primary means of expression, it is cherished by artists and audiences for its immediate and intimate access to the possibilities of creative expression.


Katherine E. Nash Gallery at the University of Minnesota presents The Beginning of Everything: An Exhibition of Drawings, January 21 – March 28, 2020. This group exhibition surveys a broad range of approaches to drawing, and includes works from a wide variety of geographies, time periods, and esthetic perspectives.

I'm exhibiting two large-scale drawings from my Conjured Memories series. Come out and see some exciting works from many talented local artists and some museum works from Matisse, Rivera, Kollwitz, and more. Curated by Howard Oransky. 

Opening Reception Saturday, January 25th, 2020
6-8pm public program on drawing
8-10pm Opening Reception

Exhibition Dates January 21 - March 28, 2020

I'm creating 100 individual heads. It's a fun, casual, and intuitive project to help me stay motivated and to allow more experimentation within my work. Let's see where this goes! #LetsGetSketchy #AllAboard #ItsGonnaGetWeird

None of the heads are in my online store, but if you see something you like and just gotta have, 
let me know.

#ICYMI Sweet N' Low

In case you missed it! - Sweet N Low: An International Show of Cute

A recent group show highlight was Sweet N' Low at Bedford Gallery in California.

An International Juried Exhibition, curated by Evan Pricco, editor of Juxtapoz Magazine and Antler Gallery. The artists selected for Sweet n Low extended the genre of cute from cuddly and precious to creepy and ironic. From kitsch and Margaret Keane’s Big Eyes, to Japanese anime and the contemporary Pop Art work of Takashi Murakami, unleash the roly-poly, goofily-gamboling, saccharine-honeyed creatures on this earth and beyond!
