Just poking my head out from the studio this dark, chilly January day to to share some good news.
First, I just received word that I have been accepted into the Bay Area Visual Arts Network (BayVAN) Artist Registry for 2011. The registry of 100 artists is apparently the exclusive pool from which artists are selected for a number of curatorial goings-on throughout the year, at Oakland's Branch Gallery and at events curated by Branch Gallery around the Bay Area). I'm honored to have been selected for inclusion in the registry, and am looking forward to the opportunities that this inclusion might bring to bear in the coming year. Check out http://bayvan.org/index.php for more information.
In other news, I remain totally engrossed in finishing up the work for my upcoming solo show at Edgar Varela Fine Arts in downtown LA. The show runs March 12th-April 9th, 2011; RECEPTION IS SATURDAY, MARCH 12TH, 6-10 pm, EVFA, 727 S. Spring St, Downtown LA, on Gallery Row. In the meantime, if you have any spare light, creative energy or general, good-willed gusto, I hope you'll consider sending it my way. I am working HARD to pull this one off, but the good news is, it's happening, and the work is looking beautiful!
As always, I am full of gratitude for the incredible love and support I receive daily. May 2011 be a wildly creative and fantastically happy new year for all!
