#ICYMI - In case you missed it! - Drama, a forever studied topic in art, has been up front and central globally since spring 2019, and continues to haunt us, whether through health, politics, war, climate change, etc. We asked artist to submit their own depictions of what the last few years of drama meant to them through 2D art. A juried exhibition featuring national artists.

The Beginning of Everything:
An Exhibition of Drawings

#ICYMI - In case you missed it! - I exhibited two large-scale drawings from my Conjured Memories series. An Exhibition of Drawings  at the Katherine E. Nash Gallery, University of Minnesota includes museum works from Matisse, Rivera, Kollwitz, and prominent established local artists. Curated by Howard Oransky.


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.

Sweet N' Low: International Exhibition

#ICYMI 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 cuddle 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!
