Good News and Good News!

I was thrilled to receive notification that one of my paintings, Beach Girls has been chosen to be a part of the Amalie Arena and Tampa Bay Lighting third annual Open Call to Artists exhibition. The piece was one of over 300 submitted.
This year's jury consisted of management from The Ringling Museum, The Dali Museum, The Museum of Fine Arts, The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts and Penny Vinik (owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning). The selected works will be on display at Amelie Arena for the 2014-1015 season and on view to their 1.5 million visitors.

In addition to the news of the upcoming exhibit, I was just informed that NYC, a collaboration with MG Stout, has just sold.

It's a good week.

Studio Space Available in Great Location

Upon reading this, some of you may already know that come summer's end I will be relocating to St. Petersburg, Fl. This means there is a spot open at Studio 4.

Shared studio/show space available- $500
Metro accessible retail location in Crilley Warehouse located in upscale Old Town, Alexandria. The space is one block from Union Street and just 1.5 blocks from bustling King Street. Just one block from the waterfront. Overall space is 525 square feet (reconfigurable to meet artists' needs) and has a large walk in closet. Studio opens to the building's spacious atrium. Movable Walker system-ready display walls. 

In addition to functioning as a working studio, the space also lends itself to various individual profitable artistic endeavors. We currently hold classes, workshops and paint parties. Artists currently in the space are established, accomplished and professional. Studio has been featured on Fox 5 news and was voted 2013 Best Gallery in Washington Post Express. 

Other businesses in Crilley Warehouse include popular restaurants Overwood Grill and La Bergerie.
