With an eye on the exhibit coming up in November I’ve been focused on completing a series of paintings. The series is largely finished, although I know I’ll continue to work and make new paintings that may fit in well with my current work and the theme for the exhibit. On the other hand it seems like I am hearing about a lot of interesting exhibit possibilities and getting calls for juried shows that my work might be suitable for. This always presents a query, should an artist hold work back for the upcoming exhibit? It could mean missing a potential sale, but on the other hand I feel that I need to know that I’ll have work available for the exhibit that’s already scheduled. I’m weighing the pros and cons of saving work back and will present what I come up with them in my next post. Thoughts, anyone?
From San Diego to Vancouver, 100 Artists of the West Coast II covers 100 artists with over 400 full color photographs of their work. The collection includes art from private as well as public collections and installations, including the collections of LACMA, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art New York, and the New York Public Library to name just a few. I'm happy to be included.
