April 25, 2019 I will be featured by the Peninsula Fine Art Center in Newport News, Virginia in an After Dark Film and Artist Talk from 6:30-8:30. The documentary film Work at Hand will be screened as part of this event. This was organized by Lee Matney of the Linda Matney Gallery and Diana Blanchard, Curator of the Art Center.
I had the pleasure to be a Visiting Artist for the day with both a screening of "Work at Hand” and also meeting with the painting students at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Monday February 25, 2019. A big Thanks to Robert Drea for setting this all up for me.
