Solo: From Dawn to Dusk

My 35th career solo, From Dawn to Dusk, is at ODETTA Gallery in New York City through November 16. Curated by Ellen Hackl Fagan, the exhibition features 15 paintings installed in an arrangement that suggests the mutable light during the period from sunup to sundown. This is the first time that a chromatic narrative has been ascribed to my Silk Road series. I am enjoying the association, because color and light are the inspiration for these small formal color fields.

A series of events is underway, including two more receptions, an artist talk, and informal conversation on the last day of the show.  Steven Baris, whose work is featured in the Flat Files, will participate with me in the artist talk moderated by Mary Birmingham, curator of the Visual Art Center of New Jersey.

Dates and times of these events are noted on the sidebar, right.
Gallery specifics are on the ODETTA website.

The exhibition catalog, which contains a curator's essay 
and my own statement about the work, features images 
from the exhibition with some detail views. 
It is viewable online.

Ellen Hackl Fagan, an accomplished artist in her own 
right, is not only the curator of this show, she is the 
director of ODETTA gallery, which is located 
within the 1stdibs exhibition space in Chelsea.
