This piece (Eugene) was juried into an exhibition at The Art League in Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia. The show runs from 7 August through 2 September 2018 and its titled "Value". The theme focuses on the fact that art represents our human values. Each piece reflects what is important in the creative life of the particular artist that produced it and that can be the essential theme in the artist's body of work.
I also submitted the two following pieces which are part of my family series of paintings. The story behind these are that the composition's geometric, textural, and color elements all combine to represents the character and personality of the family member. Eugene is my father, Marian is my mother, and Joe is my grandfather. All of these folks have played an important role in my life and creative journey. If you're interested in seeing my other family members check them out in the purchase section of my website.
The opening reception will be on Thursday, 9 August 2018 from 6:30-8:00PM.
