Three Art Openings in Three nights: Monterey, Marin, Aptos

Hi friends,

I wanted to take a moment to lovingly invite my peoples (and their art-lovin pals) to attend any and all of my three art openings coming up this weekend, Sept. 10-12th. I plan to be in attendance at all three--a little worse for wear from all the driving, perhaps, but still, most definitely, with bells on--ready to meet new friends, catch up with old ones, and talk shop about my favoritest-ever-thing: ART.

So, if you're fortunate enough to be in any of these lovely Bay Area locales this weekend, the line-up is:

Friday evening at the Alternative Cafe in Monterey;
Saturday evening at the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art in Novato;
and Sunday at Cabrillo College Art Gallery in Aptos.

"A Trip Worthwhile" will be the largest scale showing of my work this weekend, featuring a dozen or so of my paintings from the Ornamental Worlds series (painted circa 2007-8). (Please note: this show will not be debuting any new work; my current works-in-progress are slated to be released to the public as part of my solo show, Heaven is not the Wide Blue Sky, at Edgar Varela Fine Arts in LA in March, 2011, and will then travel to Portland for a second showing--details TBA--in May/June).  Not to dissuade you: this is a strong offering of some of my favorite pieces from the past few years, part of a strikingly well curated group show...definitely worth checking out if you're in the area. (Update: at the end of its run, the show will move to a second location, the brand new Echo Gallery on Cannery Row, just down from the Monterey Bay Aquarium, in October/November. Details to come.)

Public Reception: Sept 10, 2010; Exhibition runs September 10-October 6, 2010
