2014 National All Media Show

All Media 2014 reception

This is me in front of the pastel and charcoal drawing I did that was accepted into the Chico Art Center’s 2014 National All Media show. The show is up now and runs through Sept. 12th. The piece is entitled “Self Portrait” and is like most everything I do these days. Expressive. Laboring painstakingly over a photographic likeness doesn’t interest me. I enjoy movement and color and line and drama. I guess that’s pretty obvious.

Orland Group Show

I was eager to submit three pastel drawings I made recently to the Orland Art Center’s Annual Group Show and then thrilled to have them all accepted. This was a juried show and there are 27 artists in the show. The artists are from all over California. The show runs from August 2nd through August 22nd. If you’re going up I-5 to anywhere and go past Orland it’s a 5 minute detour east off the freeway to downtown and the Gallery.
