Organized by the Department of Art & Art History at UNC Asheville, the 12th Annual ‘Drawing Discourse’ International Exhibition of Contemporary Drawing opened virtually this year.

I am thrilled that my drawing, “A Little Ripped & Torn”, was chosen for the exhibition and included in the beautifully designed catalogue. View and/or purchase the catalogue.

SHIFT Online Exhibition, McLean Project for the Arts (VA) 2020


“How has your world been affected by this “SHIFT” in our lives? The work of selected mid-Atlantic artists will answer this question on July 15, when McLean Project for the Arts opens SHIFT, MPA’s first online exhibition. Juried by Henry L. Thaggert and Sarah Tanguy, SHIFT runs through August 27, 2020.”

Join us virtually for SHIFT, two exhibits drawn from the same pool of works addressing the concept of “shift, change or exchange, in paradigm, position, direction, tendency, viewpoint, atmosphere, needs, dreams, schedules, interactions, environment, perspective . . .”

I am happy that Untitled (With Circuit Board) is included in this online show. Thank you to the jurors and McLean Project for the Arts for making this opportunity possible during these challenging times.
