PUBLIC MURAL IN DOWNTOWN LONGMONT, CO

I was commissioned to do a 7'x130' Public Mural in Downtown Longmont, CO this past fall.  This was commissioned by the Longmont Community Foundation and will be on permanent display at 6th and Coffman St.  

Painting Process

I start each piece with some light spontaneous background washes and line drawing with acrylic ink, alcohol, acrylic, and graphite.  I let what happens at this stage guide the rest of the composition so it is pretty intuitive.  The work is then coated with many layers of an various acrylic mediums that are archival, UV resistant, and non-yellowing.  This is produces a thick layer to make the piece appear wax-like.  On top of this, I add more acrylic and ink washes and also more detailed imagery.  For this last step, I use a variety of acrylic mediums on top to let some imagery appear glossy while others are more matt so the surface becomes varied and textural.

Imagery Winery Wine Release!

I'm please to announce the bottling of the fantastic wines that compliment our paintings that were on display at the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco that ran August 2016 - January 2017. The labels represent four delicious red varieties from the Glen Ellen vineyard that are based on different regions around the world. Inspiration, Vision, Creation, and Interpretation are a part of the limited edition Artistry Series and can be purchased by joining the wine club at: http:// http://imagerywinery.com/wine-club-2/ 

The four original paintings are now on display at Imagery Estate Winery.  The labels are a collaboration of my work along with San Francisco based artist and great friend, Elaine Coombs. Our collaboration "Second State" work can be found at: http://secondstate.weebly.com

BEYOND THE POUR II: THE CREATIVE PROCESS

August 20, 2016 – January 22, 2017
Member Preview: August 19th 6:30am-8:30am

BEYOND THE POUR II:
THE CREATIVE PROCESS

Guest curated by artist Bob Nugent, Beyond the Pour II: The Creative Process showcases original works of art, with a focus on the creative methods artists engage to bring their inspirations to fruition.

For over thirty years, Nugent has commissioned established and emerging visual artists, including Tom Foolery, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Sol LeWitt, and Catherine Wagner, to create works of art for translation to vintage varietal wine labels for the Imagery Estate Winery. The only artistic requirement Nugent and the Imagery Estate stipulate is the inclusion of winery’s trademark “Parthenon” image in the finished artwork­–not the Athenian Acropolis Temple, but the funky structure that sits on the terraced hillside vineyards overlooking the Benziger Family Ranch in Glen Ellen, California.

Presenting more than 50 original works of art, from photography and works on paper to painting and collage, Beyond the Pour II utilizes the ubiquitous wine label to highlight the collection and to provide visitors with unique insights into select artists’ creative methodologies. Through the presentation of video, text, and visual documentation, the exhibition highlights the artistic processes of a number of the featured commissioned artists, from inspiration, conceptualization, execution, to final presentation of the artwork on the estate’s wine labels.

Artists represented in the exhibition include: Jenny Honnert Abell, Barton Benes, Tony Berlant, James Brown, Patti Buttitta, Barry Buxkamper, Elaine Coombs, Richard Derwingson, Christel Dillbohner, Dominic DiMare, Ken Edwards, Carlos Estevez, Don and Era Farnsworth, Tom Foolery, John Fraser, Stephen Galloway, Sam Gilliam, Guy Laramée, Lynn Hershman Leeson, Sol LeWitt, Pam Longobardi, Winifred Lutz, Robert McCauley, Robin McCauley, Carrie McGee, Jim Melchert, Kenna Moser, Dann Nardi, Heather Patterson, Judy Pfaff, Otavio Roth, Sylvia Seventy, Alan Shepp, Steven Sorman, Buzz Spector, Monika Steiner, Catherine Wagner, Michelle Word, and Cybele Young.

Beyond the Pour II: The Creative Process is generously sponsored by Imagery Estate Winery and in partnership with the Triton Museum of Art.

The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities is proud to present Art of the State 2016. This juried exhibition will showcase the quality, depth, and diversity of Colorado artists. Art of the State 2016 is the follow up to the critically acclaimed Art of the State: A Juried Exhibition of Colorado held in 2013. In its second iteration, Art of the State 2016 garnered 1,434 entries from 511 artists. Jurors Gwen Chanzit, Michael Chavez, and Collin Parson selected 148 works by 124 artists to represent art in Colorado being created by both emerging and established artists. The call for entry was open to all Colorado artists in all media. All three of the Arvada Center’s galleries, over 10,000 square feet, will be devoted to this celebration of art in Colorado.
