Join us on Friday, March 5th for an in-person opening at Pictura Gallery. The show can also be viewed during our current open hours (Wednesday – Friday, 2pm to 5pm) through the end of March.

Free and open to the public.

*We are working hard and staying informed so we can find ways to safely view and experience art! The opening will take place in a large, well-ventilated space. We will enforce social distancing, mask wearing and gathering limits throughout the event. Our building has a brand new needlepoint bipolar ionization system for air purification.

Exhibition at Pictura Gallery

Pictura Gallery at the FAR Center for Contemporary Arts in Bloomington, IN is exhibiting “Inheritance” from January 8th to February 26th, 2020. Though it’s a physical exhibition you can see during gallery hours, because of COVID we’re having a virtual opening on Friday, January 8th at 6pm EST. You can tune in via Pictura’s Facebook Live for a brief conversation between myself and Co-Curator Lisa Woodward and a video tour of the show. There’s also this great outdoor mural:

Art Ascent #45: Isolation

I’m the “Gold Artist” in ArtAscent Magazine’s 45th issue, themed Isolation.

“Nocturne 8” is included in “Chasing Ghosts,” a group exhibition at Verum Ultimum Art Gallery in Portland, OR. The exhibit opens in late October, but things being what they are, there won’t be an opening reception. The gallery is open for scheduled, in-person viewings.
