Return to Blog @ Studio Cray

At some point I told myself that this was the year to slow down, art-wise.  Despite my lofty expectations, I have had a super busy first half of 2018.  Here's a quick recap of what I've been up to since my last blog post in January, with a few pics below, as noted:

 

July 13 - August 18: 4 new works (pictured below) in the Parallax Exhibit at Summit Artspace, Akron

July: 2 steel and fiberglass butterfly collaboration pieces were part of the Man Of Steel/Jerry Schmidt and collaborators show at Beachwood CC Gallery in Beachwood

June-July: 1 new piece was part of the Size Matters Exhibit at Stella's Art Gallery in Mentor

June:  Reggie (my dog) and I were part of the "CLE Artists and their Dogs" article, June issue of CLE Dog Magazine  https://www.cledog.net/ 

May-June: My Translucent Wave was juried into the May Show at Lakeland CC Gallery (2d consecutive year for this show - see below)

April:  Met with fourth and fifth graders in Mr. Ascherman's "Surfing and Geology" class at the Lilian and Betty Ratner School, Beachwood to discuss my experience as a lake surfer and surf artist (see below)

March - April:  Six In Studio Exhibit at Cleveland West Art League, 78th St. Studios, Cleveland (see below)

February:   donated three heart pieces for an auction to benefit Nalu Adaptive Foundation

 

And of course there's the other stuff like my full time day job, a wedding party for my oldest daughter in May, creating new work in the studio, surfing, hiking and gardening ...etc.
