Upcoming 2017 exhibitions

Escaping the Blues

I will be Artist of the Month at Gallery 113, 1114 State Street #8, for the month of March, and once again a featured artist at 10 West Gallery at 10 West Anapamu. Both galleries are in Santa Barbara.
I am scheduled to be a featured artist at the Michael Kate Gallery at 132 Santa Barbara Street during the month of April.
I will also have work on display in 10 West in May, July, and September.

My newest shirt reads:

“Make America Great Again.
Impeach Trump.”

I truly believe that one of the most important things an artist can do for society is to produce, promote, and protect free speech.  We are in for quite a fight.

If you’d like a shirt to do battle in, let me know.
