Saturday Is For Art: New Life For An Old Piece

Last night I attended the Holiday Art Show at the Collector's Art Group in downtown Cincinnati. As one of 16 local artists in the show, I thought I should be there as a show of support and to answer any questions about my work if anyone had one. Believe it or not, I actually had a couple of people that wanted to know what I had in mind when I painted two pieces from The Envelope Collection. I also met the chief curator of the Taft Museum of Art at the show, and I told her about the piece I created out of styrofoam, cardboard, cereal boxes, gesso and acrylic paint that was inspired by a piece in the Taft Museum. So, today I am going to put up a few photos of the piece, and on Monday I will email a few images of my work over to the Taft. While I think it would be nice if the Taft gave me a show of all my art work, the Taft is still just a bit too conservative for embracing my work, in my opinion.

Stay tuned.

This piece is detailed and interesting. Impressive! The Taft museum connection is great too. Hope you get your own show.
