[singlepic id=448 w=460 h=350 float=] Yes, in case you were starting to wonder (I was!), I do, in fact, still make art. Things have been beyond crazy here, which I will explain in a later post. Suffice it to say that I have added "general contractor" to my list of semi- and/or un-paid occupations alongside "artist," "framer" and "traveling huckster." BUT... I finally forced myself to go clean up my studio and make something before I drove myself and everybody completely batsh*t. In the nick of time, I might add. The result: Aviary No.1 Study, above. Whew.

River Bend Fine Art Gallery, Bend, Oregon

[singlepic id=445 w=320 h=400 float=left] Great news! This past weekend I was introduced as a "new artist" at River Bend Fine Art Gallery in Bend, Oregon. The owner of the gallery, Jane Ujhazi, found me at Art in the High Desert this summer and invited me to check out River Bend. I did, and I loved it. The gallery is located in a historic brick building in Bend's charming downtown. The gallery space itself is beautiful, and Jane has populated it with exquisite artwork from regional and national artists. Jane's taste is impeccable, and I was happy to be included.

This past weekend my art was introduced with an exclusive preview event. Jane had elegant new display walls made for the occasion (seen in the photo above) along with a gorgeous catered spread and amazing live classical guitar from a local musician. And while the event may be over, the art remains; the show will be up through the end of the month. If you are in the Bend area, be sure to check it out. Jane has some of my best new work up, and the gallery is worth the trip.
