Charles Katzenbach and I will be hosting an opening reception for our upcoming show, Reflections, at Artists’ Gallery, on Saturday, April 10, 2010, from 6-9 pm.  The show will run from April 9 through May 2 (gallery hours are Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, from 11am-6pm, and by appointment).  Please note that as of March 2010, […]

Most of my abstract paintings are in some way related to my interests in the philosophy of mind and cognitive science.  One of the themes that underlies this work is the notion of embodiment, that how we make sense of the world is very much tied to the physical nature of our bodies.  I became […]

Artists’ Gallery is moving to a new location in the heart of Lambertville!  Beginning with our March 2010 exhibition, we’ll be at: Artists’ Gallery 18 Bridge Street, Lambertville, NJ 08530. In addition to work from all of the artists at the gallery, the GRAND REOPENING exhibition will feature landscape paintings by Joe Kazimierczyk and Michael […]

Desaturation seemed to be the theme of most of the shows I saw in Chelsea yesterday: many grayish paintings and photos without a lot of color.  Although that might be a fit for the middle of the winter, it was a sunny enough day that I was really more in the mood to see some […]

For the last 15 months or so, I’ve been a member at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville, NJ.  This month, the gallery is celebrating its 15 year anniversary with a show featuring all of our current members as well as some two dozen or so former members.  The exhibition is up now through February 14, 2010, […]

Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville (32 Coryell St) hosts its annual holiday party this Sunday (Dec 13) from 2-5pm. Many of the artists in the gallery are hanging smaller works this month, so if you’re looking for a special gift, stop by Fri-Sat-Sun 11am-6pm. One of the eight pieces I have up this month is a […]

I headed back into New York City on Thursday for an afternoon full of art that included a brisk tour through Chelsea, a (too) quick visit to the Met to finally see that Vermeer show, and an opening reception for a former teacher of mine on the upper east side. After debarking from NJ Transit […]

Today was the first day of the Art20 fair at the Park Avenue Armory and I used the occasion to visit several shows on 57th Street as well.  I had hoped to make it up to the Met to catch Vermeer, but with the wind whipping away under threatening gray skies and a need to […]

After visiting PhotoPlus Expo at Javits, I decided my feet weren’t tired enough and so I hoofed it on down to Chelsea to see some art.  There were quite a few shows that I enjoyed and found worth noting. At Stephen Haller Gallery on 26th Street, a Ronnie Landfeild show celebrates 40 years since the […]

On Thursday I visited the Jacob Javits Convention Center for the 2009 edition of the PhotoPlus Expo, an annual photographer’s trade show that I’ve visited every year since 2001.  One good sign for the economy was that the expo hall was completely packed with visitors.  Every aisle was jammed and many booths were stuffed with […]

Time flies and now there’s just one weekend left if you’d like to see my 2-person show with Marc Reed at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville, NJ.  The show is up through Sunday, October 4, and the gallery is open this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11am-6pm. I’ll be at the gallery all day on Sunday […]

I headed into Manhattan again yesterday to check out the Georgia O’Keeffe “Abstraction” show at the Whitney (up through January 17, 2010). Last December I saw an O’Keeffe show down in Washington, DC, which had improved my opinion of her work with some very dynamic, abstracted landscapes. This Whitney show starts of slowly with a […]

Here’s a 360-degree installation view of my 2-person show with Marc Reed at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville, NJ, which is up now through October 4, 2009. Thanks so much to everyone who made it out for the opening reception and for those of you who helped to pull the show together!

It’s been quite some time since I last wrote about a trip to Chelsea.  It’s not that I hadn’t seen some good shows over the spring and summer — the amazing Chuck Close tapestry & painting show at Pace Wildenstein and the Yayoi Kusama show at Gagosian come to mind — but no single trip […]

On Tuesday night I finished hanging the paintings for my half of the upcoming two-person featured show (with Marc Reed), Internal/External.  Whew!  The exhibition starts tomorrow, Friday, September 11, and runs through Sunday, October 4.  The opening reception is on Saturday, September 12, from 4-7pm, and I hope to see lots of you there! Artists’ […]

I recently finished this painting, entitled Multiple Drafts (acrylic on corner canvas, 24 x 12 inches).  The title refers to a theory of consciousness by Daniel Dennett.  Although it’s hard to tell in the online image, this piece consists of perhaps a dozen layers of marks each separated by a thin, glossy glaze layer.  Some […]

I’m happy to report that my painting Expectation will be included in the Trenton Artists Workshop Association’s 2009  Summer Show, this year being held at Gallery 125 in downtown Trenton.  The title for this exhibition is “Dreaming”.  I recently played a little game where you grab the book nearest to you (you’re not allowed to […]
