UPDATE: MRAC 10th Annual Juried Show

UPDATE:  The Manayunk Roxborough Art Center (recently awarded the 2018  Classic Towns People’s Choice award for Best Art Gallery/Workshop in Roxborough) is not moving their 10th Annual Juried Show but is keeping it at the Green Street location.  Two of my Whimsical One-Liner drawings, BAD SUSHI and HALF ASS DRAWING (L-R, above) are on exhibit.  A Whimsical One-Liner is a single line drawing that never crosses itself and in which the title and image together are a play on words. In the case ofBAD SUSHI and HALF ASS DRAWING, I do hope that everyone concludes that the titles refer to the subject matter of the drawings, and not to how they were executed.

I am very pleased to announce that juror Nancy Weisser,  invited my stained glass/ceramic piece, ERUPTION, into the Allegany Arts Council’s HOT GLASS EXHIBITION & COMPETITION. ERUPTION will be on view at their Saville Gallery, 9 N. Centre St, Cumberland, MD from August 12th until September 2nd 2017. Cumberland MD is a delightful town and the Show reception on Saturday, August 19th was a lot of fun.  In addition to juror Nancy Weisser, I had the chance to meet and talk with a number of very talented “hot glass” artists from around the country. After seeing the show I was even happier to be a part of it.
