February 11, 2017…An honor to be a featured artist at the Cary Visual Art 20th Annual Art Ball held at the NC Museum of Art.
I was very honored to paint “Heroes of Freedom” for VET (Veterans Entering Transition), founded by my friend Anne Showalter. It was auctioned at their first annual Gala on May 13, 2016 to benefit our returning heroes as they transition back to civilian life. The famous battle at Iwo Jima in WWII is of course well known by many and special to our family also. My wife’s Uncle Charlie Morrow fought in that battle in 1945. We remain deeply thankful for those that have sacrificed so much fighting for our freedom.
Bowtie and Butterfly Gala at the NC Museum of Art on March 3rd, 2016. I was honored by Emerging Women NC as featured artist for my Butterfly Women series of 2015. Find out more about Emerging Women NC at http://www.emergingwomennc.com/. Limited Edition, signed and numbered giclee prints are available of the Butterfly Women series there also.
Thanks Preston Life Magazine, Mary Bowman King and Laura Wall for the terrific press and salute to the arts in your March 2016 issue. Glad to be your cover boy!
My Art-Music Fusion Exhibition was well received on February 26th, 2016. 12 paintings all inspired by music with the musical selections playing in the background. Art for the eyes and ears!
Dec 5-6, I held my first Holiday Art Showcase! We had a wonderful time seeing old friends and new alike. Art continues to be such a wonderful adventure for me, our family and friends!
Oh what a night at the 19th Annual CVA (Cary Visual Art) Ball, November 20th, 2015! I was the live artist for the evening and had a great time painting “Lady Sings The Blues”, a tribute to the incomparable jazz singer, Billie Holiday. The live auction bid was won by Ed and Lisa Grimes of Cary. We danced the night away too and celebrated the impact of art in our local community!
It was such an honor for me to meet this remarkable woman, Caterri Woodrum, Chief Deputy Director of the NC Museum of Art. She has added my “Butterfly Woman #2” to her personal collection. It was quite surreal delivering this painting and taking photos together at our wonderful museum of art. The expansion in 2010 and the addition of the spectacular west building is not to be missed! I hope to have a piece hanging inside these glorious halls one day!
