I recently finished this painting, Nebulous (acrylic on panel, 24×24 inches), and hope to exhibit it at Artists’ Gallery in July.  It’s difficult to capture the look of this piece in the online image as the painting is comprised of approximately a dozen layers of paint with lightly tinted glazes providing physical separation and depth […]

For the June show at Artists’ Gallery, I’ll be exhibiting five small paintings, including this new one entitled Conscious Conscience: I’ve painted this image using a slightly different process than in most of my other paintings, though the difference will be hard to see in a reproduction.  This piece contains many layers of glazing to […]

I’m very happy to announce that one of my photographs was accepted into the 27th Ellarslie Open, a juried exhibition that runs from April 25 through June 14. The show is located at the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie Mansion, in Cadwalader Park, Trenton, NJ, and there will be an opening reception on Saturday, April […]

I recently finished a painting I’m calling “Secondary Process”.  Enjoy!  The term “secondary process” is a Freudian term, with many sort of confusing definitions on the Internet, though I like this one.  In this case, I’m using it to refer to the use of secondary colors (along with optical primaries) in a structured way within […]

The opening reception for this year’s Mercer County Artists show is this Wednesday, March 18, 2009, from 5-7:30pm.  The annual juried show of work from artists who live, work, or go to school in Mercer County, NJ, is held at The Gallery @ Mercer County Community College.  The juror is Kristen Accola, director of Accola […]

I hadn’t been to Chelsea since January and so was looking forward to catching up on the scene yesterday on an art-filled day in the city.  I had my list of galleries to visit, planned carefully via (which, sadly, seems to be missing more and more gallery listings these days) and the latest copy […]

On Friday, I headed into Manhattan for The Armory Show, located on piers 92-94 at 12th Avenue and 55th Street.  (Since the show didn’t open until noon, I had some time in the morning to catch up with Bonnard at The Met, but I’ll write about that in a separate post.)  This year I didn’t […]

This Sunday is the opening reception for the March group show at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville  (32 Coryell St, Lambertville, NJ).  Unlike most previous openings, this one takes place on a Sunday afternoon, from 2-6pm. This month’s theme is Madness, “an exhibition exploring chaos, passion, and general craziness,” mostly not related to basketball. I’m exhibiting […]

I’ve used a portion of my wall space at Artists’ Gallery during this month’s exhibition, The Art of Seduction, to show some photographs.  Although I focus mostly on painting, I’ve been taking thousands and thousands of photos over the past 10 years and hope to occasionally show a few prints in Lambertville or elsewhere.  Here […]

If you haven’t yet made plans for Valentine’s Day, why not come out to Lambertville, NJ, for some art and some chocolate? The Art of Seduction Artists’ Gallery Members Group Show This show runs from February 6, 2009 until March 1, 2009 Reception:Valentine’s Day February 14th from 6:00 – 9:00 The Artists’ Gallery will seduce […]

Today I had a truly amazing art experience.  The Carnegie Mellon University College of Fine Arts is having a series of special events this weekend in the New York area, and tonight’s event was a studio (& home) visit with world-renowned artist Philip Pearlstein (BFA, Carnegie Tech class of ’49).  As an alumnus of CMU […]

Every once in a while you have to sacrifice for your art.  Today, on a day when both the Giants and the Steelers were playing in huge playoff games, I had a conflict.  Scheduled at the same time as the Giants game was the opening reception for the Portrait Society of America’s local/NJ portrait show […]

After visiting the show in Newark, I headed into Manhattan to for this year’s first trip to Chelsea.  Although many of the galleries are still closed for the winter break, it was opening night for many shows.  Even with the chilly and windy weather, the receptions still drew good crowds.  In an economy where nobody […]

I was finally able to make it up to Newark today to see the City Without Walls show which includes six of my paintings.  Here’s a photo of the overall installation — you can click on the image to get a higher res version. I’m very pleased with the way my paintings look in the […]

I’m very happy to report that six of my Embodiment paintings will be included along with the works of three other artists in a show at Seton Hall University School of Law.  The exhibition is being curated by Evonne M. Davis from Newark’s City Without Walls Gallery.  Here are the details: Real or Otherwise Around […]

I’m very happy to announce that three of my paintings will be on display in a large group show of portraits — yes, portraits — at The Bernardsville Library as part of an exhibition by the local chapter of the Portrait Society of America.  In addition to my recent representational Self Portrait, I’ll also be […]

It was good to be back home after driving through nearly four hours of rain and traffic, returning from several days down in Washington, DC.  During the trip I managed to squeeze in visits to three great museums. First up, I took a quick stroll through the National Gallery of Art, just off The Mall.  […]

I’ve just finished a new painting entitled, “Entanglement” (acrylic on canvas, 36″x36″, 2008): It’s a little bit tough to capture this painting accurately on screen, as I’m using some paints that look different depending upon the light and the viewing angle.  Specifically, the underpainting includes a copper metallic paint that at some angles is a […]

After exploring the Miró and Van Gogh shows at MoMA, meeting a friend for lunch, and doing some business in SoHo, I headed back northwards to Chelsea where there’s an abundance of interesting art to see right now. Of the several major photography shows up today, my favorite was Richard Avedon at the Pace Wildenstein […]
