NBC show

 I have the good fortune to have a solo show of my paintings at the NBC4 Studio in Washington, DC for the month of December.  I installed yesterday in the gallery which is right next to the Meet the Press green room.  Access by the public is quite limited as there is the usual security for the studio, but thought I'd post a few photos to satisfy those that are curious. Lots of fun!

Captain Blue Boy

Captain America-themed reworking of Thomas Gainsborough's Blue Boy.  Don't worry, this wasn't the original painting that hangs in California, just a copy in an elaborate frame. Although, it could hang in your exhibit place. Just email me.

Sometimes the truth is funnier than fiction.  Just don't Google "Harlem Shake" or "Georgetown University" in the same search box.

I'm participating in a new ArtDC group art show that opens this Saturday, Feb. 9 at 7:30pm in the ArtDC Gallery in Hyattsville, MD. The show is called "Whodunit--Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!" where the artists provide a piece of their own work and a couple pieces featuring the style of the other participants.  The viewers will have to figure out "treasure hunt-style" who's who, what's what and why did I think painting a self-portrait in the style of Todd Gardner was a good idea. My wife won't allow it in the house because it creeps her out.

Whodunit? Feb. 9 to March 3
Opening reception Feb. 9th, 7:30-10pm
ArtDC Gallery
5710 Baltimore Ave.
Hyattsville, MD 20781

Participating artists: Erin Antognoli, Michael Auger, Chris Bransome, Roger Cutler, Steve Dobbin, Dana Ellyn, Frank Fishburne, Todd Gardner, Sherill Anne Gross, David Hagen, Tracy Lee, Barry Schmetter, Matt Sesow, Paul Sikora, Scott Speck, Roy Utley, and more...
