Below is a listing of some exhibitions I will be displaying work in.  Hope to see you at one of these interesting venues!
Tone it UP! at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts opened on May 11, 2012.
This juried exhibition, sponsored by Pittsburgh Society of Artists, asks artists to explore topics that they are passionate about and “tone it up” in their expression of those passions in whatever media they wish from traditional to video and installation art.
I have two large abstract paintings displayed in this show.  One is called “Listen”–a 48 x 48″ mixed media piece– and the other one is called “Kundalini Calling” — a 48 x 60″ mixed media painting.  (See pictures below).  Show runs through Joly 22 at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts
