I apologize for the lack of updates. I have been very ill all summer and in the hospital for almost a month fighting my Wegener's Disease. Thankfully I am all better now and I have four new paintings completed! I also have some new prints available in my Etsy Store. Check them out! For originals please inquire.
I will have some artwork on display at the Heard Museum as part of Artlink's 18th Annual Exhibition. The exhibition will take place at the
world-renowned Heard Museum on Thursday, September 15, 2016, from 6
to 9 p.m in the Steele Auditorium. The Heard Museum, located at 2301 N. Central Ave. in
midtown Phoenix’s Central Arts District. Please stop by to say hello and experience a night filled with great art!
Happy Spring Everyone! I have been working away on some new paintings. I will have them posted soon. I apologize that I was not in attendance for my past two shows. I have not been able to drive in the evenings due to neurological problems that give me trouble with my legs due to my Wegener's Disease. This is resolving itself quickly and thankfully this is "hopefully" no longer an issue :)
I am very excited to be asked to create a piece for the David & Gladys Wright House with the intent to bring greater awareness for the preservation of a great artistic treasure. The piece, consisting of a painted ostrich egg, will be on display at two events. All proceeds from the sale, will go to support Artlink and introduce the public to a great masterpiece of the Southwest. Below is where you can see the piece:
Event 1: Art d’Core Gala – March 10th from 5PM to 9PM at Hance Park (1134 N. Central Ave) Artlink’s
Art d'Core Gala spotlights the significant contribution our arts and
culture in creating a dynamic urban core. At this event the Arc Degree 360 eggs will be part of a silent auction to benefit Artlink Inc.
Event 2: Public Showing – Art Detour - March 19 and 20, 2016 in the Drive Thru Gallery Courtyard (918 N 6th St). This
creative and innovative opportunity will introduce an expanding
audience to you and our arts community while bringing awareness to the
preservation and inspiration of the David Wright House.
In 1950, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a home for his son David and
daughter-in-law Gladys on 10 acres in the middle of citrus groves at the
base of Camelback Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona. The design elevated the
home in the form of a spiral rising from the desert floor, converting
the treetops into the lawn and revealing 360° views of the mountains
forming the valley. Mr. Wright title of the plans “How to Live in the
Southwest.” Completed in 1952, the David Wright House is one of three
spiral designs realized by Mr. Wright and the precursor to the
Guggenheim Museum in New York City. The house is regarded as Mr.
Wright’s last residential masterpiece.
