I'm pictured here standing in front of 3 pieces of my artwork
at the very successful opening reception for the exhibition titled
on January 31, 2013, at the Maloney Gallery.

I was pleased that the curator, Ginny Butera,
displayed my 3 pieces together as a group on an
individual wall at the entrance to the exhibition. The show
included many outstanding works of art by accomplished professional 
artists. The Maloney Gallery at the College of St. Elizabeth is one of the 
finest and one of the most highly respected galleries in New Jersey.
The three pieces of artwork displayed in this particular
post will appear in the exhibition titled
consisting of artwork dealing with "how artists externalize the
human psycological self to present
the inner feelings and personality of themselves and others."

"Giving Voice" Gallery Opening Reception

I have two pieces in the "Giving Voice" show at the Gallery At 14 Maple in Morristown, NJ. The exhibit will run through March 1, 2013. The theme of the show is based on a poem about imagination. It is running in conjunction with North America's largest poetry event, The Dodge Poetry Festival; and it was curated by the New Jersey State Museum curator, Margaret O'Reilly.

Artwork:   Silent Revelation   Acrylics on canvas    24"x18"   2010
                  (It was purchased by the curator, Margaret O'Rielly)
                 This is a work of art that came to me in a dream in the silence of the night. I saw it the way that it appears on the canvas with the white lines on the dark background and with the soft glow emanating from the box. The image came together out of the darkness giving me hope and the encouragement to continue imagining. I think the light in the picture will become anything that we can imagine it to be.

Artwork:   Home Sweet Imagination    Acrylics on canvas    24"x18"    2010
                 This painting represents that special weightless, floating, place at the core of my being where my creativity lives and has been nurtured throughout my life.  It’s a home that goes with me wherever I go through good times and dark times. It’s the place where I was brought up. It’s humorous and whimsical while being mysterious and unexpected.
