This spring, I am being newly represented by Button Gallery in Douglas, Michigan. Button Gallery is hosting kick-off exhibition of the 2017 season. In this exhibition, 4 newly represented artists to Button Gallery will present new works created specifically for the show. The artists: Paula Swaydan-Grebel + Hope Olson + Lucie Phillips + Stephen Dinsmore. Show is free admission and open to the public.
ArtPrize and Second Ave Arts present the fourth edition of Collectors Show, designed to forge artist-collector relationships year-round in Grand Rapids. This edition features 80 artists, sixty of which were selected by juror Tyler Loftis from an open-submissions pool of ArtPrize participants. I have two paintings, Suns and Stripes, and Conversation and Kumquats, to be exhibited at the show. The other twenty artists come from New York City and represent some of the most influential artists of the past two centuries, including Eugene Delacroix, Alex Katz, Philip Pearlsteain, Robert De Niro Sr, Farifield Porter, and more. All artwork is for sale at discounted prices, with 20% of the sales going to support public education programs at ArtPrize.
For 19 days in the early fall, art from around the world pops up in every inch of downtown Grand Rapids in over 160 venues—museums, galleries, bars, restaurants, theaters, hotels, public parks, lobbies, buildings, walls, bridges, laundromats, and auto body shops—and it’s all free and open to the public.
My ArtPrize piece, "Tables", will be on display at Fifth Third Bank in downtown Grand Rapids, alongside the work of several dozen other fine artists. Venue hours are 9 am to 8 pm (Monday thru Saturday) and 12 pm to 6 pm (Sunday). View my entry profile on the Artprize website.
