I'm excited to announce that I'll be hosting my first public solo exhibit at the Bolton Public Library in Bolton, MA. I appreciate that the people of Bolton care about supporting local artists and bringing quality art to the area in a lovely, accessible space. I'm excited to be part of their 'In the Gallery' program.
The show is on display from July 10-August 9 at the Bolton Public Library, located at 738 Main Street, Bolton, MA - just a short distance off of 495.
'Light and Form' will have works from my years at the Ingbretson Studio as well as my newest works done here in Lancaster at my own studio. You'll see my still life paintings as well as some architectural work, some landscape... and that crowd-pleasing portrait of my daughter is bound to show up!
You can drop in to see my artwork any time that the Library is open (see the link above for hours and double-check that the Program Room, where the exhibit will be held, is not booked with another event at the time of your planned visit). I would also be happy to meet you for a guided tour if you're interested. Just reach out to set up a time!
I will also be hosting two public events to get to meet you and to share with you about my work: an opening reception and a talk on Direct Painting. The details are as follows:
July 10, 6:30-9:30pm - Opening Reception with Artist Remarks
August 2, 7:30-9:30pm - Artist Talk and Demo: What is Direct Painting? With Q&A following.
Kindly RSVP below and I hope to see you for both occasions!

If I am going to hold my first exhibit I am going to recreate water. I have always been fascinated with how it looks. It's something I want to touch but we know it's impossible to hold it. It looks like some soft blue jelly when you see it by the pool. I have often wondered why it's green or blue. I was late to realize it only reflects what is in front of it. If you put in a glass, you will see it's beautiful when it is clear. How I wish I can recreate it this way. I know one day it's not going to be like that anymore in most places. I just had to immortalize it.
