My solo show “Art with Attitude” is on display throughout February in the Faulkner Gallery East Room.  Seventeen major paintings are on display, including “Kokopelli”, “Minimal Sun”, “Power Play”, and “Jack’s Space”.  These recent paintings are lighter than previous work, open up the canvas, and let the art breathe.  The Faulkner is open daily and is located in the SB Public Library building. 

I will be on site Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3 to 5 pm.

Please come by anytime during the month of February, the gallery is open daily 9 to 5. The opening reception is First Thursday, February 6, from 5 to 8 pm.

The Abstract Eight, January 2014

A 499485

The Abstract Eight opened its first show – of many I am confident – to good reviews.  The exhibition, “Purely Abstract” was curated by Susan Tibbles and was held from January 10 to February 8, 2014, at the SB Tennis Club Gallery.  “Three Days in the Desert”, “Fred and Ginger”, and “Stiff” were my entries.  The Abstract Eight is a new group of abstract artists in Santa Barbara who plan on exhibiting together throughout the upcoming years.  Members include Karen Pendergrass, Maria Miller, Scott Miller, and Sara Lytle.

Gallery 855, January 2014

The Carpinteria Valley Arts Council’s Gallery 855 exhibition “Bon Appetit” is on display during January to the end of February of 2014; Tony Askew juried in my painting “New York City Bistro, c. 1970”.  This show is a very tasty treat.

The SB Sculpture’s Guild September Show at the Faulkner was juried by Nathan Vonk, Curator of Sculpture for Sullivan Goss and accepted three paintings, including “The Weight of Mercy” and “If Only Elpis Had Escaped Pandora’s Box”.

Rick will have his painting “Filled with Desire” in ArtPrize, perhaps the largest art exhibition in the country feturing hundreds of artists at dozens of venues, held in Grand Rapids, MI, from September 15th through October 3rd, 2013.  The work will be on display at Pub 43, 43 Division Ave S, in the heart of downtown.
