Opening reception June 9th
I'm excited to announce that my first major exhibition at Stremmel Gallery opens June 9th. I'll be showing a large number of paintings mostly made over the last year, alongside works by Montana artist Joe Fay.
Here and Now, 2021, 36 x 48, acrylic and mixed media on wood panel.
"The pandemic period posed many shared challenges, and I chose to respond to the darkness of the experience by making paintings that are abundant with plants, foliage, light, and color. I wanted my studio to be a place of optimism and benevolence, from where I could put out positive images into the world. The studio also shares property with an urban farm, so the incremental changes of the plants became a daily observation and focus, and this may well have subconsciously permeated these paintings".
Founded in 1969, Stremmel Gallery is located in a 6,500 square-foot, architecturally award-winning building in Reno’s Midtown District.
