 I was asked to say a few words about myself and my work in the Galex 47 exhibit at the Galesburg Civic Art Center, Galesburg, Illinois, and this video is the result.

I've been invited to participate in The Art of Description exhbition opening on November 25, 2013 at the Chicago gallery of the Illinois State Museum in the James R. Thompson Center. Other confirmed artists participating are: Sandra Binion, Karen Perl, Steve Carelli, Richard Deutsch and Peter Butterfield.

 

The exhibition is being curated by Douglas Stapleton, Assistant Curator of Art at the Illinois State Museum Chicago Gallery.

 

As described by the curator, "The exhibition, The Art of Description, addresses how artists report the sensory phenomena of the world from a distinctive vantage point, evoking a sense of presence or atmosphere beyond information. The exhibition will focus on still life, landscape and figure/portrait, with an emphasis on the quiet meditation of these subjects."

. . . the primary merit of painting is to be a feast for the eye.
