"Wanderings and Wonderings"
a 2-person show with Joe Kazimierczyk and Michael Schweigart
Aug 9 - Sept 2, 2018

Opening Reception: Saturday, Aug 11, 5-8 pm

This August I am teaming up with Michael Schweigart for a 2-man show of our "Wanderings & Wonderings". The show runs August 9 - September 2 at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ, with an opening reception on Saturday, August 11 from 5pm to 8pm.

"Reflecting November"
at Sourland Ecosystem Preserve, Hopewell, NJ
7x14" oil on panel

 For the past few years, my inspiration for painting has come from hiking trips where I enjoy wandering the forests and mountains or northern New Jersey, and I continue that theme in this show.

6x8", oil on board

My work in this show focuses on 2 main locations: the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, which I never tire of exploring, and the Sourland Mountain much closer to home - literally my back yard.

Mike Schweigart's work shows more signs of civiliation, as he paints scenes along the back roads of coastal Maine, eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I think I'm more of a wanderer, Mike is more of a wonderer. Together, I think we put on a good show.

"Dunnfield Winter"
Dunnfield Creek at the Delaware Water Gap, NJ
8x10" oil on linen on board

This is the most work that I will have on display at any one time this year, so I hope you get a chance to stop by and see the show.
