Upcoming Art Exhibits – Fall 2018

Posted on   ·   Categories Exhibits, Paintings, Sculpture

There’s a lot happening in Oregon this fall! I’ll be displaying plein air paintings throughout the Portland metro area, plus heading out to the coast to unveil my third series of ghost net baskets made from reclaimed fishing rope. If you missed seeing my abstract encaustic paintings in Lake Oswego last year, I will be exhibiting a selection of these on the coast as well.

I’m also participating in two exciting new events: the Pacific Coast pano-mural at Elisabeth Jones Gallery in Portland, and our local Artists Open Studios tour in October. I’ll be working on a panel for the pano-mural for the next two weeks – follow me on Instagram to watch the painting come to life! Scroll down for all the details on these events and more.
