Bedtime Stories


Stop by Future Tenant  gallery June 5- 28 to see Bedtime Stories, curated by Sonja Sweterlitsch.  Be sure to check out the link below to see Future Tenant's interview with Sonja regarding the exhibition. This is certainly going to be a great show. Just check out the artist line up below.

"There is a time of night when we lie alone and the external clatter of our waking life is subsumed by the personal language of our dreams.  This is a common human experience, but one we experience alone, which makes it such ripe subject matter for an art exhibit.  Bedtime Stories opens a window to the seldom seen, seldom shared, personal experience of when waking life gives way to sleep, when we interpret our experiences, remember, and finally give way to dreams that take us off to completely new narratives."

- Sonja Sweterlitsch

AAP "At First Glance" Preview Party


The kick off event for the AAP 104th Annual was an amazing event. Featuring all 63 works at the Hotel Monaco, with only 24 hours to set up and tear down was a tremendous undertaking. The evening's success was thanks to many AAP members who worked very hard to show the exhibition locally before moving it to The Butler Institute of American Art. I was very happy to meet influential American painter Philip Pearlstein whose presence at the event was greatly appreciated. I would also like to thank Dr. Louis A. Zona, juror of this year's exhibition, for awarding my work The Donna Hollen Bolmgren Award. Be sure to see the show on view through July 19th.

"The Nativity," People's Choice Winner


This post is a bit late but I wanted to thank everyone who took the time to vote for my work, The Nativity  at The National Catholic Arts Exhibition. It's an honor to win an award in this way. The positive reviews by so many on a piece that is so modern makes me hopeful about the future of Sacred Art.
