The exhibition runs from August 27 through September 18, 2010, and there is a reception on Sunday, September 12, from 2-4pm. The Philadelphia Sketch Club is located at 235 South Camac St, Philadelphia, PA.
I’m very pleased to announce that one of my paintings, The Reality Problem, has been accepted into a juried show at Muse Gallery in Philadelphia. The show runs from August 6 through August 29, 2010. The first day of the exhibition is Philadelphia’s “First Friday” when galleries in the Old City part of town stay […]
I recently returned from a 10-day trip to Hungary that included a brief stay in Budapest followed by a visit to the southern Hungarian city of Pécs (pronounced variously like “Peach”, “Paych”, or “Paysch”). Aside from making a nice vacation to a place I’d never visited before, the purpose of the trip was to attend […]
Two of my portrait-based paintings are included in the show Face Value — The Art of Portraiture at the Trenton City Museum (Ellarslie Mansion) in Cadwalader Park, Trenton, NJ. The show runs from July 31 through September 5, 2010, with an opening reception on Saturday, July 31, from 5-7pm. The show is put on by […]
Relatively speaking, Thursday wasn’t such a bad day to walk around New York City to see art. The “cool” 90 degrees was bearable and with some strategic south-side-of-the-street-shade-walking, the worst of the heat could be avoided (“…walking on the sidewalk hotter than a match head…”). The No. 6 train uptown, with its working air conditioning, […]
This month I have just one painting on display at Artists’ Gallery, but it’s a favorite one that I haven’t exhibited in quite some time: This month’s exhibition is up through August 1, 2010, and the opening reception for the featured artists (Carol Sanzalone and Alla Podolsky) is this Saturday, July 10, from 4-7 pm. […]
The painting Change Over Time consists of approximately a dozen layers of marks interspersed with a dozen layers of thinly tinted glaze, creating both physical and optical depth. The glazing layers contain a mixture of charcoal and “interference” pigments, so that the painting appears to have both coarse texture as well as a very smooth, […]
This month at Artists’ Gallery I’m exhibiting six paintings, including these two “corner canvases”. The canvas is beveled so that the painting hangs snugly in corners (they also can be hung flat against the wall). This show is up through July 4, 2010, and the gallery’s hours are Fri-Sat-Sun from 11am-6pm (18 Bridge St, Lambertville, […]
I started off yesterday’s trip to New York on the upper east side where I met a friend for lunch, after which I had intended to see the Julie Mehretu show at the Guggenheim. As I started walking towards the museum, I had a déjà vu moment while thinking about why I don’t get to […]
Though my 2-person featured show in Lambertville has finished up, I’ll be exhibiting three older works this month at the gallery (Artists’ Gallery, 18 Bridge Street, Lambertville, NJ). The show (which features the work of Beatrice Bork and Paul Grecian in the main gallery) is up from May 7 through June 6, 2010.
I have one photo in this year’s Ellarslie Open at the Trenton City Museum in Cadwalader Park, Trenton, NJ. It’s my panoramic shot from Mercer County Park, taken last November. It’s stitched together from some 6 or 7 separate shots and there’s so much data that I could print this photo much bigger, but here […]
My 2-person show is up for another two weekends at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville, NJ. Here’s a wide-angled panoramic view of my half of the show: This weekend (Apr 24/25) is also Lambertville‘s annual “Shad Fest“, a celebration of a fish I’ve never really heard of. But it’s an art- and food-filled festival right in […]
Late last year I finished this painting, Time’s Texture, which is now on display at Artists’ Gallery in my 2-person show with Charles Katzenbach. The show is up through May 2 and the gallery is open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 11am-6pm, or by appointment. I’ll be at the gallery this Saturday, April 17, […]
The paintings are hung, the wall labels are in place, the light bulbs are directed, and the gallery is looking mighty colorful! My 2-person show with Charles Katzenbach, Reflections, opens to the public tomorrow (Friday, April 9). We’re having an opening reception on Saturday, April 10, from 6-9pm. Hope to see you there! The show […]
Thank you to Art Educators of NJ (AENJ) for inviting me to speak at their annual Youth Art Month awards ceremony in Trenton today. It was an honor to discuss my art career with such an art-loving audience and a pleasure to meet so many of the high school students selected to represent their counties […]

This year I only managed to make it to two of the art fairs during Art Fair week in Manhattan, but overall it was an enjoyable time spent with a diverse selection of artwork. First up was The Armory Show, which is open through Sunday at Piers 94 and 92 on the West Side of […]
I’ve recently been reading Arguing About Art: Contemporary Philosophical Debates and one of the first essays (about whether food can be art — do not read late at night on an empty stomach!) mentions how philosophers can discuss the ontological status of a work of art (what kind of thing it is), and in particular […]
After leaving the Whitney Biennial, I was looking for some more inspiring fare and so headed down to Chelsea for a quick trip to some galleries whose shows seemed promising. On 26th Street, Galerie Lelong provided a nice jolt of energy with the work of Emilio Perez: large abstractions full of swirls and whooshes, meticulously […]
I made it into this year’s Whitney Biennial… OK, you didn’t fall for that for a second, did you? Let me start again. I attended the Biennial today during member previews, which allows you to spend some time with the work without feeling pressed onwards by a huge crowd. On the other hand, you don’t […]
I’m happy to announce that one of my paintings, Arising, has been accepted into the Mercer County Artists 2010 show. The show runs from February 23 through April 1, 2010, with an opening reception on Wednesday, February 24, from 5-7:30pm (at The Gallery @ Mercer County Community College). This year’s juror was C.J. Mugavero from […]
I recently finished the following painting, which will be appearing in my 2-person show at Artists’ Gallery in April.
In a nice article in tomorrow’s (Feb 14) New York Times, Roberta Smith comments on the sameness of New York’s museum exhibitions with this suggestion: What’s missing is art that seems made by one person out of intense personal necessity, often by hand. Agreed! 🙂
