Crystal Bridges Interactive Touch Exhibit Continued

Be sure to check out the Touch Exhibit on your next visit to Crystal Bridges.  I was fortunate to be asked to contribute three paintings to this very unique, interactive exhibit.  I've included some shots of the exhibit.  It really is quite an educational experience where viewers can interact with the work and explore further the process that goes into creating acrylic, watercolor, and oil paintings.  

December Art for the Holidays III


On First Thursday, December 1st I'll be displaying work along with the artists of the Fayetteville Underground to celebrate the opening of their third annual Art for the Holidays exhibition. 

Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday, 12 to 7 p.m. and Saturday 10 to 5 p.m. Additionally, there will be extended shopping hours on Friday, December 2, until 10 p.m., and on Sunday, December 4 from 11 a.m. to 5p.m.



"In conjunction with First Thursday, from 5 to 8 p.m., a fundraiser for the Fayetteville Art Alliance will be hosted by local artists, Kathy Thompson and Cindy Arsaga at their studio, located at 3 E. Mountain Street. Community members are invited to stop by for food, drinks, and to share in the holiday spirit, as they raise funds for our new community art organization." 



"This will be the final exhibition at the current Fayetteville Underground location. The community is encouraged to stay involved with the organization, as the artists move to their new home and resurface as the Fayetteville Art Alliance in January 2012. To learn more about the new organization and how you can help please visit www.morphtheorg.com"

"The overall tone of the novel is dark and quite frightening....the stories are interesting and sickening at the same time..... well written and illustrated with nods to social abuse, murder and
revenge....." -David Holloway: MouthLondon UK
