Create! Magazine is a bi-monthly contemporary art magazine that helps promote artists and the art community online and in print.  The artwork chosen for each issue of individual artists is juried.  The juror for Issue 12 Miami Edition is Kaly Scheller-Barrett, artist and curator. I am thrilled to say that I was one of the artists chosen for this issue and I want to thank the juror for being selected.  I also wanted to compliment the staff on Create! for creating a really beautiful magazine!

I wanted to sum up Halloween in one word and this was it. Word art is very popular in modern art and in the retail setting. We are bombarded with graphics, advertisements and the media and I think that it has an impact on my ideas and also I am intrigued and affected by all the visual images.

This painting is on view at Harris Stanton Gallery through September 29th.  The show is "An American City: Viewpoints"  The show is running in conjunction with the Front International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art: An American City including Cleveland, Akron and Oberlin which runs through September 30th. The inspiration for this piece was to portray a view of Akron semi-abstractly with the building overlapping each other with transparency to work with the space in the canvas. Charles Scheeler's abstract cityscapes was an inspiration for this painting.

I wanted to thank everyone who came to the opening last night.  Thank you Meg, Ivana and staff for your continual support.  It was a perfect evening.  I had a very enjoyable time especially after the frenzy of the final push to get the paintings done and in time for the show.
