If you find yourself in this neck of the woods and you're looking to see some art - even if you're just in the mood for a fine Dixie cup of gallery wine - then join me at one of the evening events detailed below. If, on the other hand, you prefer to see art sans socializing - I appreciate that sentiment - the solo show will be up through October 15th.

"Mongrel Truth," my first solo show, opens at AG Gallery, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I'm very pleased with several of the paintings included, as well as a number of the small drawings and washes. If you miss the opening on the 8th, there is an encore on Friday, September 15th. I'll be on hand both nights, all dolled up.

The Beholder, an online art gallery based in San Francisco, is dedicated to offering art to people who are intimidated by (or just unfamiliar with) the gallery system/art market. I think their mission is important and I was therefore delighted to join their stable of artists a few months back.
On Wednesday, September 13th, The Beholder is landing in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at Galapagos Art Space. Two of my paintings will be on display, along with works by a number of other talented Beholder artists.
On a related note, I'm the current artist feature on The Beholder site. Check out this link for an interview and toothy grin.
