I am wired! And psyched! And super pleased to be a part of a group exhibit entitled "Wired", opening next month in Rocklin, CA, not far from Auburn. The works above are samples of several of the artists in this show. This unique and special group of painters were "herded" (to use his words!) by Frank Ordaz, the driving force behind this exhibit. The title of the show comes from the fact that all of this group has made connections, somehow, using the electronic media, primarily blogs. Frank's brilliant idea was to bring together in a physical exhibit, the works of these artists.
This is a terrific honor. Some of these guys are like painting gods to me... they are my heroes - for their work, and for their character and faith. It is pretty overwhelming for me to be a part of this group, and you can bet I'm working hard to get my best effort out there. And now you know why I was so freaked out about being in a slump!!
Here's the list of artists and the dates and times of the show. Any of you out there in California, check it out!
