This is the place to learn about recent awards, or images that are on display at exhibitions as well as new images that have been added to the catalogue – see below.
Upcoming or Current Events
- Covid continues to impact the Art world.
- Breaker in Hurricane was accepted into the Artist’s Equity 71st Fall Juried Show at the Cheltenham Center for the Arts – a real in-gallery art show! It runs through December 19. Of course, there was no live opening and gallery attendance is restricted due to Covid regulations.
- There have been no other art shows that I am aware of this year. There is the possibility of some art shows occurring next year.
- BUT the Covid-19 Pandemic continues to challenge all businesses – including venues for art:
- Misty Morning Wait for the Ferry was accepted into the on-line Artist’s Equity 71st Annual Spring Show, due to closure of the host gallery due to Covid.
- Sugarloaf Mountain Works, Inc. the incredible nationwide art show organization has filed for bankruptcy. That means you won’t be able to see my work at the Fall show that had been scheduled for November.
- The Chester County chapter of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen canceled the December show at Ludwig’s Corner fire house.
- I will let you know if any shows open up.
- Another sad consequence of Covid on the economy. As you may know, Steve Howells chef/owner of Louette’s BYO invited me to move my artwork into Louette’s in early February. On March 9 Steve cohosted a marvelous event with Bibou chef Pierre Camels at Louette’s. A week later the Covid pandemic closed everything. By early August Steve decided to close the restaurant. Best wishes Steve! You had a great thing there at Louette’s!
- To draw some local Holiday sales to my business I have created a Ready to Hang Shop on this website. It displays artwork that is either framed under glass or canvas wrap. Check it out!
- My wife and I toured the San Juan Islands and the Olympic National Park in the state of Washington last July. Check out Past a Gentle Giant, Sunset at Ruby Beach, Morning Fog on Ruby Beach and Ruby Beach in Morning Fog in the Landscapes and Seascapes Catalogue, as well as At the Foot of a Giant in the Nature and Weather Catalogue! More images are on the way!
