Installing the show

 With my dad who flew in from KC for the opening

Me with Sliverstar

a couple of kinetic sculptures by Diane Landry
were installed in the office. A lovely transformation
of plastic bottles into something ecstatic and sublime

A view of John Torreano's concurrent solo show Dark Matters Everywhere

John's video of an art history stand-up comedy performance

John Torreano and friend in front of one of his paintings

I love these Suzy Lake photos which were up in the gallery's office

sightseeing in Cincinnati - Findlay market

Art from the middle east at the Cincinnati Art Museum

Matisse at the Cincinnati Art Museum

Sam Gilliam at the Cincinnati Art Museum  

Rookwood pottery at the Cincinnati Art Museum

a couple views of Cincinnati - very scenic with lot's of 
brick buildings surrounded by hills and the Ohio river

looks like Germany

art deco building ornament downtown

the Roebling bridge over the Ohio river - a precursor to the Brooklyn Bridge

Looking over the river to Kentucky - next time I want to check out the Bourbon Trail

John Torreano and Michael Solway at Scotti's restaurant
one of the oldest in the area with a great atmosphere

a recently renovated building in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood

 At Tucker's - Thomas had to try Goetta which sounds German, 
but is a Cincinnati invention combining oats and pork into a breakfast delight
I had shrimp and grits

A gallery in Over-the-Rhine called "We are all Vikings"

one of many beautiful brick buildings in the OTR

I wanted to try this tiny new restaurant Abigail Street
but never got a chance - next time!

Forms of Abstraction

Here's a few photos from a group show I am in at 
Irvine Fine Arts Center curated by Carl Berg. 
There are 21 artists in the show!
I just photographed a few things.
The show will be on view through Feb. 23
Cheers to Carl for his thoughtful curation.
The show looks great and I am thrilled to have been included.

A lovely monochrome by Carolee Toon. The photo does not do it justice!
