So, where was I? Oh, trying to stay high and dry, I seem to recall. And working on several shows simultaneously, with the biggest one, “Passionate Menagerie”, opening this Friday at the JRB Art at the Elms Gallery in OKC. A LOT of new work will be available, including the “rain” series and many other artworks seen here. Just under 30 pieces, as a matter of fact. It’s been a busy month or two. Sorry I’ve been a little preoccupied.

You can contact the gallery if you are interested in making a purchase, and if you are in the neighborhood of 2810 North Walker in Oklahoma City this Friday from 6 to 10pm, stop by and say hello and enjoy the opening reception!

Another interesting show I’m participating in is called Traveling Through Artists’ Eyes at the Invited Artist’s Gallery in the Oklahoma City Underground, a tunnel system down under OKC that’s been refurbished and updated with new lighting, carpeting, paint and a walk-through gallery with rotating exhibits. This is a group show put together by Julia Kirt at Oklahoma Visual Artist’s Coalition and is a collection of travel related art by seven Oklahoma artists. I contributed sketchbook pages from Australia, Costa Rica and Panama. This one runs through into October. Here’s a really great review by John Brandenburg.
At the Bennington Center for the Arts in Bennington, Vermont, American Artists Abroad is opening this Saturday, August 4. Three of my pastel/graphite paintings are included in this show. And, yes, they are for sale- the Bennington will be happy to help you with all your art collecting needs!
