I'm pleased to announce I'll have a brand new painting in the annual Summer group show taking place at the George Billis Gallery NYC. Come out to see this latest piece featuring the icon mid-century Seagram Building, designed by legendary architects Meis van de Rohe and Philip Johnson. The show opens Thursday, June 25th from 6-8pm and runs through July 25th. www.georgebillis.com
A big thank you to everyone who made it out to the Long Beach Museum of Art's Art Auction XVI! It was a great event with lots of money raised for the Museum's many educational programs. My piece Egg Chair At Night closed out the live auction!
In conjunction with my City Modernism II exhibit, now open at the George Billis Gallery LA, I'll be leading an exclusive (and FREE) Downtown Modernism Walking Tour on Saturday, April 25th, from 2-4pm with the organization de LaB (Design East of LaBrea). Join me as I walk from downtown LA's famous DWP Building to Parker Center, stopping at iconic examples of mid-century Modernism found along the way. As I discuss what led me to feature these buildings in my latest show, author Alan Hess will provide their historical and architectural background. For more info and to RSVP, please visit de LaB's website.
As we start a brand new year, I look forward to February, when my painting Palms and Architecture will be featured prominently in the Laguna Art Museum's annual auction.
