Repression and Revelation: Show at Pi

Repression and Revelation
Pi Art Gallery, Kansas City, MO
November 3rd - November 25th 2006
Opening Reception: November 3rd, 6-9pm

Over the weekend I delivered several paintings and some drawings to Pi Gallery for my November solo show. One main wall features the series 'Repression and Revelation,' and other walls feature various figurative works. Above is a sneak peek at the main wall. (The city scene in the corner is actually a painting by Jane Pronko, who exhibited for October. It was a great show!)

H&R Block

Last Friday I set up my display at the new H&R Block World Headquarters. Saturday was a 'Block Party Safari' celebration for the employees and their families, which I was invited to attend. There were bands, food, face painting, and even a small petting zoo. Following are some pictures of the panels; yes, I often make silly faces in photographs.

Details on Governor's Invitational

I have acquired more information about my piece in the capitol building. Eleven paintings were chosen from the MidAmerica Pastel Society's Juried Exhibition at the South Wind Gallery in Topeka to hang in Governor Kathleen Sebelius's private conference room at the Kansas Statehouse. Among them was my pastel, "Cris."

Needless to say, I am completely honored and excited! I hope to make another trip out to Topeka soon for a historical tour and to see where the painting is hanging.

Lots of Things Happening!

Wow, have I got a lot on my plate right now! I just picked up one of my pastels from the MAPS Juried Exhibition in Topeka; the other was chosen to hang in the capitol building. I don't have many details on this, but will post them A.S.A.P. This Thursday I will deliver portraits to hang in the lobby of the new H&R Block World Headquarters, and will attend the "Block Party" celebration next Saturday.

Of course, the big news in my show Repression and Revelation opening November 3rd at Pi Gallery in the Crossroads Arts District! I have been working diligently to finish the series and everything is going well. Here are a couple from the series; more can be seen on my website.
