Representing the West: February 1 - May 26, 2019, Sangre de Cristo Arts Center

I’m pleased to announce that Juror Tony Ortega has selected two of my pieces to be included in Representing the West at The Sangre de Cristo Arts Center in Pueblo, Colorado.

My paintings “Bus,” oil on linen, 42 x 30, and “El Capitan, oil on panel, 20 x 14, were juried into this show. The exhibition will feature works by 40 artists from all over the country, which were selected from over 600 entries.

A description of the show and the venue are excerpted here from the Arts Center’s web site:
