Coming soon; THE WHITE SHOW
Opening with a reception on 2/1/13, Friday evening, this exhibit at GALLERY U in RED BANK, NJ will feature artworks all in white!  Come see how artists interpret this theme of creating artwork using mainly this color (or non-color)!  I have a photo in this innovative show.  The gallery is located at 80 Broad St., Red Bank, NJ 07701  732-747-6696

X-RAYted Art Book

Wait!  It’s not what you think…it’s an art book featuring my series of digital photo collages created from photographing actual human x-rays and combining them with other original, photographic images, Victorian woodcuts and often text.  I’ve been working on this series since 2010 and have exhibited them in several shows throughout NJ, in Detroit, Michigan, Waukegan, IL and online…some of these pieces won awards & were sold to collectors as far away (from NJ) as The Netherlands!  I Hope you’ll enjoy your signed copy of this unique book that I designed myself…makes a creative coffee table book or a fun gift for the art lovers in your life!

Fantastic opportunity for Monmouth & Ocean County art teachers.

Gallery U in Red Bank, NJ is an amazing art organization I’ve been exhibiting with where 50% of the gallery sales go to helping people recovering from traumatic brain injuries.  I’m happy to help them promote this great opportunity for art teachers in Monmouth & Ocean Counties in NJ:

Gallery U in Red Bank is holding a special exhibition of original works by teachers of the arts in NJ’s Monmouth and Ocean Counties. Far too often teachers of the arts put their own work on the back-burner. It is our intent to offer an opportunity to exhibit and sell their artwork in a professional gallery. BACK TO SCHOOL is open to any art teacher from K-university level. All styles and mediums will be considered, however, all art must be able to hang on a wall. An opening reception will be held for all artists and the public on September 14, 2012. The show will remain at Gallery U until October 10, 2012. Deadline for submissions is August 19, 2012. For more information on how you can participate, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/groups/251637761584426/
