Watermill Center Benefit

This is a bit overdue, but I am excited to share a piece of exciting news. I had a print (Metaphysics Classroom – ed. 1/7) in the Watermill Center exhibition and benefit auction this year. It is a great program and excellent company to be in, as there was work on auction from some very famous names. The print sold in the silent auction for a good bit more than the opening bid, in part, no doubt, to the beautiful job Daneyal Mahmood had done in selecting the framing wood.

My good friends over at Skaggs Creative have been doing this column called Wednesday Wisdom on their blog for a while, and a few weeks ago they posted an interview with me in that column. Once again I’m a bit late on this piece of news, but I had to share it anyway. I’m not sure if I had any wisdom to offer but it was flattering to be asked nonetheless. Check it out here.


The Hold Tight show opens this Friday!

The gallery is the new design studio of Ellen Geldbaugh, an architectural and interior designer in Telluride, who will be presenting a handful of exhibitions throughout the year. Since this is the first, it has been a hustle over the last two months to get it all together, from the build-out, printing, framing and installation.

Mark did a fantastic job preparing the space itself and helping me with the install – the show wouldn’t have happened without him! I printed the work with help and expert guidance of Nicole at House Tribeca. Thanks to Judy and the Ah Haa School for allowing me to use their Stone Building for the mounting and framing.

Colorado Exhibition

I am very excited to announce the opening of my first solo exhibition at the end of the month!

I’ll be showing a selection from my Hold Tight series which will be up through September in the new “design | studio” in Telluride, CO. More to come on the installation and preparation of the show later, but first… the poster:

Ice Racing

Presidents Day weekend in Northville, NY. The New York State Ice Championship event drew competitors and intrepid spectators, who braved sub-zero temperatures and at times, a biting wind from the north, to gather on the frozen Sacandaga Lake for a two day event. I had not planned to attend, but found myself in town over the weekend and ventured out onto the ice to see what it was all about.

New Year / New Portolio

I am really pleased to present a recently completed new travel portfolio. This was really a home made project from soup to nuts. All the printing, layout and book construction was done in house, not to mention the photography of course. Though I definitely owe some special thanks to the guys at House Tribeca for some color correct and edit inspiration.
