    Spring 2021 Shows

    As we slowly, carefully ease out of Covid-19 restrictions, I’ll be in several shows this spring. Most of these will have some sort of measures in place (social distancing, limits on the number of visitors, etc.) but *will be* in person, not virtual, events.

    2021 TAC Small Works Show

    I have two small (obviously!) pieces in this show, both little cat paintings. Now through April 10, 2021 at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, 300 Gendy Street Fort Worth, TX, 76107, in the heart of Fort Worth’s cultural district. For more information, go to the FWCAC website.

    Video interview on FWCAC

    Giovanni Valderas, Exhibitions Manager at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center, just posted a Zoom interview he conducted with me last week about my show at the FWCAC. Thanks, Giovanni!

    The show will be up one more day (I take it down on Sunday, Nov. 8), so no more putting it off!

    Here’s the interview (if you’re not seeing an embedded video, here’s a link to it on YouTube).

    “Then and Now” video tour

    If distance and/or circumstances prevent you from visiting my show “Then and Now” in person – fear not! As promised, I’ve put together a short YouTube video tour and featurette. The show is up until Nov. 7, 2020 at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center. See for hours and more information.

    Here it is for your amusement and edification.

    If the embedded video isn’t displaying, here’s a link to the video on YouTube.

    My solo show, “Then and Now,” is now open! This is a selection of paintings from two periods of my life as a father – when my sons were young, and now when they are adults.

    The show is on view September 4 – November 7, 9 AM – 5 PM (closed Sundays), with extended hours Saturday, September 12 (Gallery Night), Thursday, September 17, and Saturday, September 19 from 9 AM – 7 PM.

    Due to the current pandemic, there will be no opening reception. I plan on being up there the afternoon and evening of September 12 to meet and greet anyone who cares to come out.

    Elsewhere I’ll be posting a video preview and eventually will put the show up on the website YouTube. UPDATED – video is now visible on YouTube at .

    PLEASE NOTE: because of Covid-19 precautions, all visitors will need to wear masks, and practice social distancing. There will be no reception. Check the #FWCAC website at for more information about Covid-19 precautions.

    A socially distanced summer

    If you’re reading this I’m glad because it means hopefully you are well.

    Here we are, almost to August, and…well, I’m still here. I’ve been working my day job remotely (in my studio/office) for over 5 months, trying not to get too batty.

    Life has found an uneasy equilibrium, alternating between boredom and low-level undifferentiated panic. You’d think working from home I’d get more art made but you’d be wrong. The Fall will be better, I tell myself.

    I was accepted in two shows that started out as normal physical exhibits in real space, which turned into virtual, online shows, thanks to the Covid-19 need for Social Distancing (which – don’t misread this – I think is absolutely necessary). I’ve got a piece in another show – the 2020 TAC Small Works Show – which you can actually see hanging in the Fort Worth Community Arts Center.

    And although I didn’t get in the ArtSpace 111 Juried Competition, I was included the Artspace111 Texas Now Online Showcase, which is everyone who entered the Juried Competition. A pretty cool idea, and I salute who ever came up with it.

    And it looks like my Solo show at Fort Worth Community Arts Center may actually happen, albeit with some changes in how the FWCAC hosts openings (for obvious reasons). The show is slated to be up from October 9, 2020 to November 7, 2020. More details as we get closer. By then there may well be some other changes in my life – at least I’m hopeful there will be.

    You can, for a little while longer, anyway, see the two pieces that were included in the Irving Art Association Texas & Neighbors show online. They are on the following pages:

    Note: updated to remove links to the The Online Showcase, which has been taken down.

    Finally, if you haven’t seen my YouTube Channel (that’s a thing now!), check it out. I’ve got two videos up and hope to get another put together before the end of the summer.

    Stay safe, friend, and thanks for stopping by.
