Evergreene: The Artists and Their Art

I’ll have two paintings in this show this week in lovely Nolita, NYC. The opening reception for the show is Thursday evening, May 19th, 2011, from 6-10pm, and you are invited. The show is open for two additional days- Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21 from 10am-6pm. But that’s it! There are just three days to catch this renegade/pop-up event.

The two paintings I’ll have in the show are “Brim” and “Transfigured”.

Here’s where:

So what’s this show about?

Evergreene is the name of a leading architectural arts studio here in Manhattan. Working there for several years after moving to New York taught me a few things graduate school simply could not. I quickly learned how to work collaboratively on huge paintings with a group of highly skilled artists from all over the world. I made many artist friends, and gained experience with a whole range of techniques. A highlight was working as a restoration technician on a several landmark murals, including the lobby ceiling of the Chrysler building. After spending many hours cleaning old varnish and dirt off these beautiful paintings, I realized that my artist education was coming full circle. By learning to work gently back through the layers obscuring an old mural, I had finally learned to paint backwards.

It’s going to be fun to share the walls of this exhibit with some wonderful artist peers and friends. I hope you will join us Thursday.
