Solo Exhibition and Private Reception

I am pleased to announce my ongoing solo exhibition of “The Art of Socio-Political Abstractionism” in northern San Diego County, June 12 – July 31.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to attend the Private Reception which was on Opening Day, Saturday, June 12!  Many people were able to witness the country sinking further into the swamp, or rising out of the swamp, via the mechanized work “Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, Into the Swamp We Go”.  If you missed that experience and discussion, you are always free to contact me via the “Contact” form on this website, and perhaps we can arrange to meet at the gallery for a personal tour and demonstration.

A few people at Opening Day expressed interest in purchasing one of my works.  Although my works are not normally for sale, being held privately for future exhibitions and public discussion, for two of my works I have three originals, each being a slight variant. Those are “The Blue Wave of 2020” and “The End of Democracy in the National Interest?”  If you are local, expressed interest and would like to continue negotiation to obtain one of the those works, please contact me via the “Contact” form to personally negotiate how that might occur.

The exhibition is described in the following flyer.  The exhibition is being held in the “Expressions – II” gallery section of the the Escondido Arts Partnership Municipal Gallery. Their website may be accessed at http://www.escondidoarts.org/expressions-gallery.

Bookmarks have been printed to pass out as reminders of the exhibition; be sure to request one from the artist or pick some up at the exhibition for yourself and your friends!  They will have all the details, and an image of “Season of Darkness” (the off-balance work on an irregular quadrilateral, shown in the flyer above).

To emphasize the artist’s uniqueness and differentiation from other artists, the following “How many artists …” series of flyers have been developed to also promote the exhibition.  They have been popular, and if any remain, please help yourself at the table at the exhibition.
