Marywood Faculty Biennial-Still time to catch the exhibit

Even though the opening and artist talk is over, it’s still worth a stop into the Mahady gallery to see the great work by Marywood art faculty. There is a group installation as you walk in comprised of 10 ” x 10″ works by all faculty. My contribution are three color grid block prints I used as a basis for the design of the exhibit postcard.  The grid was created by printing the backs of the wood letters on a proof press, scanned in, colorized in Photoshop and then printed on wood. The work is up until October 4th.

A Night of Art in Scranton

Originally posted on Where Creativity Works:

A little cold didn’t stop me and a friend from going to the First Friday event in Scranton, PA. The night was filled with music and artwork from talented artists and musicians. First Friday is a great way to get off campus and look at amazing artwork by different artists.

Here is an overview of galleries that I attended on February 6, 2015:

The AFA Gallery – featuring Michael X Rose and Scott Mitchell Putesky

Michael X Rose’s artwork was oil on canvas, and a lot of his images are very violent. One of the pieces that I remember from his collection was a horizontal piece that showed wolves killing humans.
