This is a shortened version of a video, made in the fall of 2000. It highlights interviews with Otto Neals, Robert Blackburn and me, as well. You can see the full version of the video on YouTube.
This etching of mine will be on display next month in a show of directors and members of the Society of American Graphic Artists ( SAGA ). The show will be held at the Old Printshop Gallery on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan, The Old Printshop has represented me and my work for many years now, and they have a large selection of my prints in their gallery. I am sure it will be a terrific show.
Currently, I have a number of my large political pieces up in a show at the Pelham Art Center in Pelham, NY. The show will be up until March 25th. The show’s title is OP-ED ART: IMAGE IN THE SERVICE OF IDEAS. It’s a political show trying to capture the mood of the emotional fall-out from the election, and includes works by two of my heroes, Brad Holland and Frances Jetter. Both are famous political illustrators who did tons of political art for the New York Times over the years. It’s really a thrill and an honor for me to have my work up on the walls alongside that of two of my heroes!
My Work is up on the walls in three shows in Manhattan right now. The first is at the Salmagundy Club on Fifth Avenue. This is an exhibition of both etchings and monotypes by the directors of The New York Society of Etchers and the Salmagundy Club.
The second exhibition is a members show on jazz music that is up at The Society of Illustrators on East 63rd Street.
The third show is up at the Mehu Gallery on West 100th Street. This show has been extended because it received such positive response and lots of sales.
Please go see these, if you can. They are all terrific shows!
I’ve been in numerous exhibitions in the last two months. A number of them were on the theme of ugly politics, inspired by the election tensions that ran high right up to the election.
I curated two shows recently, one was a mixed media exhibition at the Mehu Gallery, and the other was the Carrier Pigeon issue 16 release exhibition that I did with Russ Spitkovsy, Carrier Pigeon Magazine’s original founder. This show traveled to Kutztown State University in Pennsylvania, where we had another opening, panel discussion, and where I did a monoprint demo and lecture to the art students there. I was also in a political exhibition at the Westchester County Center Gallery and Cultural Center in White Plains that coincided with the election.
