Artist Talk with special guest Kota

I'll be giving an artist talk at The Lantern (600 Liberty Ave.) on Thursday, August 10th @ 6:00pm. Kota (our Husky) will be there to field questions about the drawings and sculptures on display. Hope to see you there. Here's a MAP. 

 

My solo exhibition at The Lantern Gallery in Downtown Pittsburgh opens Friday, July 7th from 5:30-10:00pm. There will be a new installation of my word balloons as well as Daily Geology drawings and books available. Hope to see you there.

I was recently interviewed by "Dear Pittsburgh" and had a great time. We talked about process, making a living as an artist and navigating historical defenses.
