Solo Show in January 2013...eeeeeek! :)

Come one, come all! I'll be showing around 38 pieces with their accompanying narratives. The show opens January 11th and concludes February 13th with the artist's reception to be held on January 17th (yes, a Thursday) from 11 to noon. I know this is a rough time for most of you to make it out, but please plan on stopping in for a visit while the show is up. The last solo show I had was in Dorchester, Maryland and what I remember most fondly is that the place was packed and everyone was taking their time, looking at the images and reading the narratives and laughing...belly laughing. It was GREAT! If you need a good post-holiday laugh please check out my Strange Vintage Fictions show.

The show will be in Communications Hall gallery at Northampton Community College. More info to be found on the Facebook event page!

Admiral "Worms" Wormsgau

Admiral "Worms" Wormsgau
His countenance was bisected, for whatever reason, mirroring the two worlds he inhabited simultaneously. The left half of his face dwelled in the here and now, reveling in the joys around him. It was this half that attracted all things wild and lovely. It was this cheek on which he etched a small heart. In direct contrast, the right half was forever tinged with sorrow and longing for the rest of his genetic tree buried in stone graves, or lost on ocean floors, or parts scattered to the four corners. He seemed to crave these people he'd never met. His complete smile was something his loved ones would never know.

Some Low But Indestructible Form Of Life

Some Low But Indestructible Form Of Life

She had documented that it was, in fact, alive and that it had seemingly human ears and other facial features. But alas, she missed the exact moment it became self aware, opened its shining eyes and yawned silently.

Lunar Arrangements at Dalet Gallery - A Group Show

Come one, come all. Next Friday evening, February 3rd from 5-9pm at Dalet Gallery in Philly. Lunar Arrangement, a group show featuring 6 artists kicks off with an opening reception. It's First Friday in Philly, so plan to get there early and see the other gallery offerings.

There was a bit of contention about the title of the show, originally it was to be called "Lunar Derangements" which I think I liked more than the other artists. But I think my work fits the deranged bit more than their work, so I completely understand. I'd love to see any and all who'd like to come say hi at the show. I believe I have around 14 pieces on the walls. Quite exciting! BE THERE!

When Twain Meets Brain

When Twain Meets Brain
He had read Mark Twain's "Pudd'nhead Wilson" and though he loved the story with all its social commentary, the title seemed to influence his daily life most. He was asked to hang the puddings every week and did so without question. But this time the blankness of their forms ate at his soul. He could not allow it to continue. This time it would be different.
