A New Experience! Spectrum Artists Pop-Up Gallery

October 2017 through June 2018

2017 was full of surprises. I have joined 14 other local artists showing our work through a temporary venue, in a yet to be leased store front located in the newly developed complex called Spectrum Town Center at  259 Spectrum Ave, Gaithersburg, Maryland.  It is located in the court yard, close to the Barking Mad Cafe. Hours are Saturdays and Sundays only: 11am - 3pm and 5pm - 8pm manned by contributing artists.  Come by and see what our local talent has to offer. 

 Frederick County Library - Brunswick Library
One Man Show 12 / 2017 - 3/ 2018

This is a brand new experience for me. I am one of three artists invited to provide a group of works that will rotate around  three Frederick County Libraries between December  and August. Each artist will show his body of work at Thurmont, Urbana and Brunswick libraries for three months each. This adds up to three one-man shows in nine months! How cool is that? Quite a challenge, but i'm looking forward to it.  I am now showing four pieces at the Brunswick Library Through June

 Up-coming Show -- Strathmore Plein Air Exhibit -- 
~ November, 2018

This is a special exhibit that will help promote the Montgomery County Plein Air Artist group. The show will feature works that exhibit the views in and around the Strathmore complex in Bethesda. It will be exciting since the show offers us a chance to sketch or paint within the music complex during performances, though out the next year. Stay tuned for our progress and confirmed date of exhibition.
