My recent solo show at the James David Brooks Memorial Gallery at Fairmont State University just wrapped up and a closing reception was held on September 13th to give students the chance to meet and discuss my work. Many thanks to professors Jeff Greenham and Jennifer Boggess for orchestrating the exhibit and installation.
The students were eager to discuss the mythological themes in the work as well as my techniques. Lauren and I enjoyed the opportunity to meet and discuss narration in figurative art with new faculty member Joel Dugan whose own solo exhibit would follow mine. Also, as always, it was a pleasure to see and talk to our friend and inspiration, the painter Lynn Boggess.
Jennifer stated that throughout the duration of the exhibit she saw many students that appeared to be from other majors in the university excited about the work and sharing it with their friends, notably student athletes. That statement made a great evening all the better to know that my work was getting such a positive response from such a varied audience!
