The Retrieval of the Beautiful at the Painting Center, NYC



Moose Disco, 2014, acrylic on panel. 24 by 24 inches. 

Galen Johnson’s book The Retrieval of the Beautiful (Northwestern University Press) is a dynamic discussion of existence and consciousness of human activity, including art. Johnson writes, "Here it is enough to see that beauty and the sublime blend into one another when the beautiful grows powerful, transcendent and majestic." 

Something beautiful seduces you and draws you in. We invite artists of all disciplines to submit work that explores beauty through a variety of styles, materials and processes.

Opening Reception: Thursday, June 23, from 6 - 8 pm

The Out-Of-Towners at Satellite Contemporary, Las Vegas, NV

Untitled, 2014. Acrylic on canvas

I have two paintings on display in November at the new art gallery, Satellite Contemporary in Las Vegas. I'm excited to be a part of their inaugural show. It features paintings, works on paper and photography by Jared Jelsing, Eleanor Aldrich, Judith Baumann, Matthew Best, Joomi Chung, Sean Greene, Pang-Chieh Hsu, Sandy Litchfield, Morgan McKeehan, Larissa Mellor, Bridget Mullen, Bridget O’Brien, Nicole Stone and Derrick Velasquez.

The gallery describes their first show as:

"Unabashedly, Out-of-towners is an acknowledgement of our position outside the local arts scene. We are moving in, bringing with us our amazing friends, colleagues, and affiliates, and are hoping to introduce the Las Vegas community to a fresh, new pool of talent. For this inaugural exhibition, we wanted to collect a group of artists that represent our aspirations as a contemporary arts space. From Judith Baumann and her notorious Dead Wrestlers to Sara Pertras' elegant ladies, we have an enormous range of work in our little gallery. We invite you to see the it in person on Saturday November 15th, from 6-10pm at the Emergency Arts building on Fremont St. in downtown Las Vegas. For more information and directions, please see the contact page."
