The other exhibition will be at The Bonfoey Gallery in Cleveland, Ohio. This exhibition will open with a reception Friday, October 2nd from 5 - 8pm. I hope all my Cleveland peeps can come out and play! Stay tuned for more info as we near the events.
I'm pleased to announce that I've received an honorable mention in the Dave Bown Projects 10th Semiannual Competition. I'm among some pretty great company including another Cleveland native, Sarah Kabot, who won the top prize. Yeah!!
In other news, the drawing I sent to Australia arrived safely. Evidently the first exhibition was well received and the work has moved on to the second gallery location. Its odd having artwork so far away.
I had the pleasure of attending the CAN Journal Friendraiser at Keith Berr Studio last Thursday night and what a treat!

Things are starting to wind down in the studio as some of the pressure is off, so I'm ready to get out and enjoy some of this summer. Top things on my list? Going for a hike with the fantastic Amber D Kempthorn, and grabbing some nibbles with my bud Miss Amy Casey before she takes off for her Alaskan residency (photo below by Lou Muenz). Cheers folks!
