Thank you to everyone who came from near and far and attended the "Illustrious Decay" opening at CWAL and 78th Street Studios. This was my first time since my days at CalArts I had done an installation piece let alone a collaborative one. Jen Omaitz led me through it because I kind of had zero… Continue reading ‘Illustrious Decay’ Opening Night

The subject of showing up to your own opening has come up recently; a lovely gallery owner here in Cleveland actually had to have a meeting with various artists about the fact that, "hey, you should… Continue reading Your Art Reception: It Helps To Be There
