Trip to Manhattan!

Manhattan, KS, that is. This blog is way late, but what can I say? It has been a busy time for me. I took the road trip on September 2nd primarily to visit the Strecker-Nelson Gallery. This is the farthest west I have ever been, and the road there was, well, rather flat.

The overall quality of the work at the Strecker-Nelson is really impressive; their Person to Person figurative show is what really caught my eye and propelled me to contact them about representation. I am pleased to announce that the gallery and I are building a relationship together, and I am scheduled to show in one of their rooms in August and September of 2007!

On the way back, I stopped in Topeka. The first stop was South Wind Gallery where I have two pastels on display with the MidAmerica Pastel Society 2006 Juried Art Exhibition. I had a pleasant conversation with Gary, a charming man who runs the shop. The gallery is beautiful, and the exhibition was full of impressive pieces.

The second stop in Topeka was my good friend Terry's chocolate shop: Hazel Hill Chocolate Traditions. I got to catch up with a friend I had not seen in a while, get a behind-the-scenes tour, and sample a delicious cappuccino truffle. Mmmm, a yummy end to an exciting day.

Art Fairs, et cetera

I have been too busy to blog! Last weekend was Art Westport, and though it could have been worse, it was a soggy, dreary weekend. If you missed me there, feel free to stop by the UnPlaza Art Fair Spetember 16th and 17th!
I have been working diligently on my series for the opening in November. The third painting was finished some time ago, the fourth is almost complete, and I am nearly ready to start the fifth. The show will be titled "Repression and Revelation," and an opening reception will be held on November 3rd.

(I was planning to insert an image here, but the image uploader doesn't seem to be working at the moment. I will try again later.)
