Just as I was preparing for my previously scheduled exhibit and workshop in Tunis last winter, the revolution in that North African country launched the Arab Spring—and temporarily postponed my travel plans.
With the Tunisian exhibit on hold, I’ve had a very prolific year. I’ll exhibit new paintings simultaneously this fall at Fountainhead Book Store and the Starving Artist, both in Hendersonville, NC. These acrylic paintings are abstract works informed by nature that present the beauty of seasonal change in Western Carolina’s woodlands. The challenge with this series of paintings has been to work with spontaneous handling of materials while remaining within the parameters of seasonal change.
The two exhibits combined are a preview of the exhibit sponsored by the U.S. State Department and the American Embassy of Tunisia that will be held after the democratic elections in Tunisia scheduled for October. The working title for that exhibit is “Pieces of the Sky.”
The Fountainhead Book Store’s exhibit runs from September 1 through November 30 at 408 N. Main Street, Hendersonville, NC. The date of the reception is September 2 from 6-8 p.m.
The show at the Starving Artist runs from September 1 through October 15 at 814 Kanuga Road, Hendersonville, NC. An opening reception will be from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, September 9.Read More...
