As of July 1st 2016 I’ve left the Cole Pratt Gallery

I’ve parted with the Cole Pratt Gallery on very good terms after nearly a quarter of a century. It was a painful decision for me to leave one of the finest galleries in the region but over the last many years the gallery’s clientele has become saturated with my work, resulting in fewer and fewer sales. As sad as I am to leave the Cole Pratt Gallery, I’m equally happy and excited to be a free agent, travel lighter, cast a wider net, and explore other markets in the region.

My Thursday plein air class is moving to City Park for the summer

Our new Thursday class location is on the bank of the lagoon in City Park by the WPA car bridge where N. Alexander Street goes over the lagoon. We will be on the City Park Avenue side of the lagoon. N. Alexander is the only street that enters the park from City Park Avenue.

My work is in two group exhibits this month on the north shore (click here for more info)

Abita Plein Air will open this Friday April 8th and run only that weekend. It’s a group show with 20 regional artists presenting plein air landscape paintings executed in St Tammany Parish within the last 3 months. The opening is Friday April 8th, 6 to 9pm at the large Bandstand/Gazebo next to the Trailhead Museum in Abita Springs. It will be on view Saturday and Sunday 10am to 4pm.

The Southeast Louisiana Landscape, curated by John Kemp will open at the St. Tammany Art Association, 320 N. Columbia Street, Covington LA 70433 This Saturday April 9th 6 to 9pm. Artists exhibited will be included in Kemp’s book about Louisiana Landscape painting to be released this fall.

In time for the holidays I’m releasing two new series of archival prints!

First, I’m releasing a collection of prints of paintings I’ve done in Jacksonville, Florida – my hometown – during my frequent visits there. Also I’m releasing a second series of prints of my New Orleans paintings with a bit emphasizing a bit different subject matter than the first. As well as having paintings of New Orleans neighborhoods, it will focus a bit more waterways and maritime scenes in the region. Both collections of prints can be purchased on this website along with my previous print series.
