Unexpected Garden has been accepted to the Scarab Club’s Gold Medal Exhibition!

I’m very excited to have this painting selected by juror Mario Moore to be included in this group exhibition. The Scarab Club was founded by a group of artists in 1907. It has a rich history, for which I’d love to be a part of, starting with this exhibit.

Live Painting Demo

Cruise into Pontiac tonight and tomorrow for a live painting demo.

As a participant in Pontiac’s Art on Wheels Festival, and on the heels of winning first place in Canvas Pontiac’s Art Competition, I will be fabricating a new landscape, painting live and open to the public inside the Alley Cat Cafe, located on the corner of N. Saginaw and W. Lawrence St., in downtown Pontiac, MI.

I will begin the painting Friday night (8/17/18) from 6-9pm, and hopefully complete the work tomorrow (8/18/18) during the busy Dream Cruise afternoon.

During the live art demo, limited edition prints of “Trail Dreams” will be available for $300, credit cards accepted. Also, I have six recent artworks you may enjoy exploring throughout the cafe.

I believe there will be lots of activity with street musicians, multiple artists and craftspeople, and food trucks serving the public, so it should be very interesting to see what that environment inspires in my work. Hope to see you there.
For all of you unable to make the event, I’ll try to post some of the action on my facebook page or instagram Acct. So like or follow me if you haven’t already, to stay in touch, and, Thanks.

Here’s a writeup about the Festival in the Oakland Press.

Canvas Pontiac – 1st Place

As an independent artist, I am very grateful to have received a first place award from the Canvas Pontiac art competition for my painting Trail Dreams.

The judges responded by saying, “from weaving paths through the forrest, with trees that change in and out of focus, a river that leans diagonally to the left, it’s perfectly positioned in the pocket part, and really captures your imagination.”

With this recognition, and prize money, I will continue painting large scale imaginary landscapes that give viewers new places to explore and enjoy.

I’m thankful for the opportunity to have this painting seen by so many people through this program. My 8’x10′ banner will continue to hang on the side of the building located at 35 N. Saginaw, downtown Pontiac, MI., for a full year.

Thank you for your interest and support.

GPAA 79th Annual Members’ Show

 

6:30 – 8 p.m., Thursday, May 11, Art Studio, The War Memorial

TECHNOLOGY in ART with Steve Miller and Ned Devine
Their theme for the evening: Digital technology is as much a part of contemporary art as it is a part of our daily lives. It affects the way we see and interact with the world, as well as how artists respond to it. The influence is so broad that we are now in a post analogue art world. Not to say that painting, sculpture, and photography are dead; on the contrary, they are augmented, just like our reality. Technology interacts with the arts in so many ways. Artists use digital components in research, creation, dispersion, cooperation and collaboration, just to name a few. Digital technologies in the arts have shrunken our physical world while expanding our conceptual capabilities, creating new conversations and expressions about how we view and create art.

 

There is no charge and everyone is welcome. Please register to let us know you are coming:

Technology in Art

Grosse Pointe Artist Association has asked me to lead a discussion about technology in art with it’s members. I’m not sure I’m completely qualified to lead this discussion, but what the hell, so I’ve asked my friend and fellow artist, and high school art teacher Ned Devine to join me in the presentation and discussion. Here’s our concept:

Digital technology is as much a part of contemporary art as it is a part of our daily lives. It affects the way we see and interact with the world, as well as how artists respond to it.

The presentation and discussion will take place Thursday, May 11, in the Art Studio, at The War Memorial, Grosse Pointe, MI.

Please let me know if you are interested in participating in this discussion.
