Artist-curator Mel Reese included my drawing let there be warmth, let there be light in this edition of Art In Res’ Weekly Curation, Abstract Thoughts. She writes,

“The beauty… is in the imperfection, the moments when we can spot the hand of the artist in the perpetual loop.”

This drawing is available for sale via Art In Res, which allows you to pay in monthly installments if desired. I will contribute 50% of my proceeds from the sale of this piece to Brooklyn Defender Services.

Two of my meditation drawings are included in Deep Blue See, an exhibition curated by Krista Scenna of Ground Floor Gallery in Park Slope, Brooklyn in partnership with Prevent Child Abuse America to raise awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Month during the month of April. [edit to update: show has been extended through June 1, 2020] I appreciate the gallery pointing out how work toward preventing child abuse is more important than ever at a time when people are staying home — home is not safe for everyone.

10% of sales from this exhibition will directly benefit Prevent Child Abuse America.

catalogue: Visual Thinking – International Juried Drawing Exhibition

Click the button below to view a PDF of the catalogue put together by the Thinking Through Drawing Research Network. This is my first time being included in an exhibition catalogue! See p. 43 for my drawing, Meditation XIX (the return of the repressed) – after Louise Bourgeois. As I wasn’t able to visit in-person, it’s been nice to be able to look through all of the drawings and get an idea of the exhibition as a whole.
