The Artists of Gallery One

This is a great, big, beautiful exhibition space, so I will have three large paintings on view alongside works by my friends.

Gallery One is an itinerant cooperative group of mid-career artists who are committed to their individual creative practices and mutual sharing for artistic and personal growth. Each artist represents a different background and tradition which is clearly visible in how each interprets the world and works with materials to transform them into unique works of art.

Old Lyme's Midsummer Festival

Shop for Limited Edition Reproductions

Midsummer Festival Logo

It wouldn't be summer in Old Lyme without the Midsummer Festival, a quintessential New England celebration in the heart of the historic district that is jam packed with events including art exhibitions,  farmer's market and artisan fairs, musical performances, talks and demonstrations, kids activities, and food trucks. 

This year I will be at the Florence Griswold Museum, under a tent as part of their Bohemian Street Fair. This is your only opportunity to view my full line of limited edition fine art reproductions and make purchases in person. Have your heart set on a specific image? It is highly recommended that you order in advance to guarantee availability (limited quantities will be available at the festival). Can't make the event? Shop for reproductions online

Taking a Break  

This past May my son graduated from college and before he headed off to his new job and life in NYC, we took off for a family vacation to mark his rite of passage. The Grand Canyon has long been on the bucket list, so we decided to combine it with a visit to Sedona, Arizona for a week of hiking. What is interesting about visiting the Grand Canyon is that it doesn't reveal itself until you access the trail at the top of the South Rim. No photograph truly prepares you for its vast awesomeness. To be able to take a break from the usual and spend time walking in such grand and beautiful landscapes is truly one of life's great pleasures.
