This July I'm teaming up with Gail Bracegirdle for our first show together at Artists' Gallery. The show entitled "Dream in Color" is my biggest show this year so I hope you get a chance to see it.

"Dream in Color" runs July 10 though August 3, 2014 with an opening reception on Saturday, July 12, 5-8 pm at:

Artists' Gallery
18 Bridge Street
Lambertville, NJ
[map & directions]
Gallery hours: Thursday through Sunday 11am-6pm

Gail Bracegirdle is an amazing watercolorist who is always exploring media and technique. For this show, Gail is exhibiting a series of florals painted on crinkled paper. The paper adds a wonderful sense of mystery to the work:

Most of what I'm showing is a new body of work - a series of "Imagined Skies". Skies can change so quickly that when I paint on location, I'm usually painting how I remember the sky looking at some earlier point in time. So I took that idea one step further and created this series of paintings done entirely from memory and imagination. It's the biggest series I've ever painted and I don't think I'm finished yet. I'll be showing a good number of imagined skies - all small works. I'll also be showing a few pieces painted more traditionally, but all with a big emphasis on the sky.

A few of the paintings I have on display (click for larger):

If you can't make the opening reception, I hope you can see the show sometime during the month. If you can't make it during normal gallery hours, please let me know and I can arrange to open the gallery at a time convenient for you. Finally, we are having a small closing reception on the last day of the show, Sunday August 3, from 2-5pm.

My work in this show depicts the D&R Canal and towpath with a railroad bridge crossing overhead - a reference to the transportation and industry which played a big part in Trenton's past and present.

Also at Ellarslie, my "Small Works" show has been extended and I have 10 pieces still on display. Originally scheduled to end June 15, this show will remain up through mid-July or longer.
