Alley Art: Discovering Wabi-Sabi

The Great Bay Art Gallery’s summer show is opening this evening. The reception is 5-8pm. I’m honored to be one of the twenty something artists and poets participating in the invitation only exhibition. Each artist or poet was assigned one of Somers Point’s allies. We each created art or poetry about the alley. Our focus was to find beauty in decay. The alley I was assigned was Miller Lane, the closest alley to the gallery. Here are the watercolor paintings I created on site this summer:

Green Bins. Watercolor and Ink on Paper. 5″ x 5″

$200.00

Purple Bins. Watercolor and Ink on Paper. 5″ x 5″.

$200.00

Sun Kissed. Watercolor and Ink on Paper. 5″ x 7″

$275.00

And my least “Wabi-Sabi” of the four:

A Glance Down Miller Lane. Watercolor and Ink on Paper. 5″ x 7″.

$275.00

I Remember Wanamaker’s

Right now, this painting is hanging in the Ocean City Arts Center’s “I Remember Wanamaker’s” show. It is truly an honor to show in the Ocean City Arts Center’s gorgeous gallery again. This was an invitation only themed show that I am proud to be a part of. The only problem is, I don’t remember Wanamaker’s.  Sure is a pretty organ, though.

“Remember That Sound.” Watercolor and ink on paper. 5″ x 7″

Battle Bot

Nothing to see here, just me and my giant Ham-bot.

When it rains, it pours. Not only do I have two separate gallery openings this Friday night, but today my work was featured in Shop Art Direct and Glamour Shoes. Look at me go!

Perkins Center Show

This Sunday is the reception of the Perkins Center for the Arts’ 2009 Works on Paper show in Moorestown New Jersey. I have a piece entitled “Four Months in a Coffee Shop, Horizontal” that is to be on display.  The reception starts at one PM, and goes until four.

Finished the Oil Painting

This is the first in a series of oil paintings I hope to apply to galleries with. It is currently not for sale. It is based on a dream I had about standing up. The last image is to give you the idea of its size.

It is painted improperly on top of a painting of my sister screaming I made in college.

So, in many years a

large screaming face will become visable in the space including the back of the chair and directly behind

the emerging white face.
