Last minute show announcement here:

I'm excited to be exhibiting several of my Italian landscape paintings in a group show, Travel: Home and Abroad. These landscapes were done during the summer of 2013, while I was visiting the beautiful city of Ascoli Piceno. The show also features work by a number of great artists of the region, including a friend and mentor from graduate school, Grant Drumheller

The opening reception for "Travel Home and Abroad" will be held on October 29th from 5 to 7 pm, at Macpage LLC, 30 Long Creek Drive, South Portland, ME. For more information, see Macpage's website.

For those in the New England/Seacoast area who haven't already checked it out, my work is part of Everything Illuminated at the incredible Drift Gallery in Portsmouth, NH. The show features 2 other painters, Timothy Wilson and Kate Doyle, whose work is well worth seeing. It's a show that looks at landscapes in 3 unique ways and, as the title suggests, takes a great interest in light.

In this show, my work is a personal experience of the landscape, drawing from past and present surroundings. Occasionally and often just in the back of my mind, I find myself in instances of great appreciation and content for the moments happening around me. As a response, I paint to recreate these moments and to find them in new ways. In a fight to reclaim this fast-fading inspiration, I often to turn to invention, relying on memories and whims to fill in the blanks left. I take something existing, in memory, in observation, or in both, and cast it in a new and personal light. 

Everything Illuminated opened to the public on June 13th and will be on display until July 26th. For more information, go to: www.drift-gallery.com/2015-exhibitions

My painting Acony Bells was recently featured in a wedding at the Drift Gallery in Portsmouth, NH. Although the landscape was previously sold, Acony Bells' owner was kind enough to lend it out to be the backdrop for this ceremony. Drift Gallery is a beautiful space and made for a great wedding location.  I'm glad to have been a small part of the couple's day and wish them the best.
