Art All Night 2017!

Once again, my wife and I participated in Art All Night Lawrenceville. 

It’s a free art exhibit in a huge warehouse and free for all Pittsburghers. Also, anyone in the city can submit one artwork to be shown.

My mixed media sculpture/painting “Tridimensional Portrait of a Lizard in the Midst of an Existential Crisis” was on display, along with a painting my wife made. It was a blast as always!

Wings & Wildlife Art Show 2016 – the National Aviary

I was once again accepted to show my artwork at this year’s Wings & Wildlife Art Show at the National Aviary. There’s  nothing quite like sharing one’s wildlife-inspired art while surrounded by birds from around the world.

My work featured at my local (and favorite) art supply store!

I absolutely love Artist and Craftsmen Supply Store in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh. I find myself there almost weekly, whether I need anything or not. It helps that I live nearby. The employees never cease to be friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They feature local artists every month behind the front counter, and I recently got a turn. Works shown are “Woodstock the Golden Conure,” “The Watcher“,”Stripes,” and “Tiger Shark.”

Art All Night 2014!

Here in Pittsburgh we have an awesome annual event: Art All Night. It’s art, and music, and beer… all night long. It’s free for everyone, and anyone in the burgh can submit one artwork for display – with all being accepted. It’s such a great way to see the creativity going on throughout the city from hobbyists, pros, children, and dabblers alike. Needless to say, there are thousands of works on display. And it’s an absolute blast. My pastel drawing “Dexter” was my featured work.

“Wild Things” – A blast of an experience that went without a hitch

Well, we attended the “Wild Things Public Art Installation & Exhibition” juried by Cynthia Shaffer at Sweetwater Center for the Arts in Sewickley, Pennsylvania, which contained two of my artworks, and it was a ton of fun. “Longing” sold! I’m pretty happy that “I Hear You Have Crabs” did not, as I don’t really want to part with it.

Here’s me with my fiance. The artists were “highly encouraged” to create masks for the reception.
