Holiday 2008 Update

Apologies, all, for the lag time since my last posting. I've got a lot going on, as we all seem to during the holidays, so I'll keep this brief, and promise to tell more soon.

The Basics:

Flesh and Bone, the group show at Madrone Lounge in San Francisco that opened in September (featuring eleven artists and 10 of my pieces), is up and ongoing through the end of January. It's a really good show, worth a look. for details.

Also, look out for my work at Reaves Gallery in San Francisco, beginning in January, 2009. Reaves Gallery is a lovely boutique gallery in Hayes Valley, 235 Gough Street, @ Hickory, between Oak and Fell.

I have a solo show upcoming at the San Mateo Civic Gallery (City Hall), in March-April. I will post dates and other info on my event calendar, as well as a reception date, as the date grows closer. Thanks to San Mateo City Arts, who awarded me the show; I believe strongly in the value of art in public spaces, and I am looking forward to this opportunity to share my work with a new audience, beyond gallery walls.

In Los Angeles, Edgar Varela Fine Arts continues to cook up solo shows--two are in the works as of now for 2009--and other opportunities to showcase my work. I will post more info as soon as I have confirmation. In the meantime, those in the LA area can make a private appointment with Edgar to see my work: 213-494-7608.

And, although I will make a formal announcement next fall, I can't help but share the exciting news that a specialty line of snowboards based on my paintings is currently in the be released worldwide in the fall of 2009! More info to come later in the year.

Lastly, I just wanted to give you all the heads-up that my newly updated and revamped website, featuring (at long last), my most recent paintings, will be launched shortly. It'll be at the same url, cooler and more user-friendly. Will send out a mailing when it is officially up and running...I can't wait!

Thanks so much for your ongoing interest and enthusiasm in my means so much. Wishing you all wonderful holidays and a happy new year.
