(A very swift) Current exhibition / Blogged
I have been spoiled by long museum exhibitions. For the past couple years, if you missed the opening reception or the first few weeks of my exhibition, I could suggest that you just go another month, or even another year at a different venue.
Not so for my current exhibition, Defined by Water.
An installation view of Defined by Water at Gross McCleaf Gallery
The show opened at Gross McCleaf Gallery (Philadelphia) just eleven days ago, and will close at the end of next week (Saturday Sept 28). Three weeks never seemed so short!
So, if you intend to see it before it vanishes (and I do encourage you to see the new paintings in person for their complex textures and colors), you will need to hurry.
Charley Parker, who lives in Philadelphia and writes about art (and makes it and teaches it, as well), has written about this exhibition in his blog, LinesAndColors.com. It is amply illustrated.
Museum additions / Magazined
One of my small oil paintings, Clinton Bridge Study (its larger version is somewhat visible in the above installation photo), has just become part of the Dubuque Museum of Art collection. Also, a larger canvas from my exhibition there, the one that features the bridge at Dubuque (Cross Traffic, Dubuque, shown below) was purchased by one of the museum's board members with the intention of eventually donating it to DuMA's collection.
