Visions West

I am excited to report that I am now represented by Visions West Gallery. Visions West has locations in Bozeman MT, Livingston, MT and Denver, CO. We visited Bozeman this summer to drop off a few smaller works and do some family camping. I have to say, if Lander wasn't such a great place to live, I think we would be living in Bozeman.

"Into Sight" Oil and Mixed Media on Canvas, 40"x60" 2009 Available at Visions West

I drove some work to the gallery last weekend and took pictures along the way. When I travel alone, I like to take random shots while driving...I just point the camera, cross my fingers, keep my eyes on the road, and shoot. sometimes I get some really interesting things. It was an amazing day, clear sky, warm, the last bit of summer still hanging on. I kept reminding myself how fortunate I am to live where I do.

Affordable Art?!

"Simple/Complex 1-20" from the series "Simple Things for Complex Times."

In recent months there have been a great amount articles, blogs, e-seminars, and conversations about the art world surviving the current economy. I know many supporters of the arts and collectors are frustrated. In an attempt to allow more people to have access to art, I made a series (titled Simple Things for Complex Times)of 20 small mixed media paintings that are available at Lyndsay McCandles in Jackson,WY. Here is a link to an article on Tammy Christels' Jackson Hole Art Blog about the work and my motivation behind it:

All 20 works are priced at $199.00. The pieces are titled Simple/Complex 1-20 and are mixed media on canvas done in 2009. The sizes are 6"x6" squares and 5"x7" or 7"x5" rectangles depending on orientation. Again did I mention that all of the works are $199.00?

I wanted to have a chance for people on my mailing list to snatch up a piece before they are all gone. If you would like to purchase any of the works please call Lyndsay to make arrangements at 307.734.0649.

Press, Publicity, and a New Painting

I have a nice little mention in an article in the Boise Weekly about art collecting.  The article has a shot of one of my pieces too!
The Walls of Perception 
Boise lawyers learn the art of collecting

Spink and Butler stand before a large oil and alkyd on board by Wyoming artist Matt Flint. The painting, entitled Dust, is their most recent acquisition. It employs abstracted plants and animals to suggest isolation and transformation. It offers a dream-like landscape of the artist's imagination.

"I like the texture and the colors," Spink says. "The techniques Flint uses, like scratching the surface, make it moody. When I look at Matt's work, I wonder what he's thinking about."

I marked my piece with a red dot.  Second from the left on the top row is work by fellow Wyoming artist Connie Norman.

Below is a brand new piece available at Lyndsay McCandless Contemporary.

Gallery MAR

I am pleased to announce that I am now represented by Gallery MAR. Saturday I drove to Park City, Utah to meet with Maren Bargreen, the owner of Gallery MAR.

I brought 6 new works to the gallery, two of which are below.

The gallery is on Main Street in Park City and has a diverse and exciting roster of artists. I am so fortunate to be able to work with great galleries ran by people who are committed to their artists, art making, and the communities that they serve.

Central College Show, Pella Iowa

In February I traveled to Pella Iowa for a solo show at Central College. It was a nice relaxing time. I got meet with students and give a few talks about my work.

Pella is a quaint Dutch town that has an amazing old style butcher shop and two incredible bakeries. I ate to many dutch pastries and spent quite a bit of time in a coffee shop on town square.

On Monday morning I went to a nature preserve and watched 50 or more bald eagles flying over the river and nesting in huge trees by the water. I had never seen that many eagles together in one place.

I flew into Des Moines on a Saturday night and had most of Sunday to hang out and explore before driving to Pella. It just so happened that the Des Moines art center (which has a surprisingly good collection) had a Grant Wood show up complete with American Gothic. Grant Wood of course had his roots in Iowa. I always knew good things could come from the mid-west. It is always quite an experience to see work in person that you only know through reproductions.

Free Art Cards!

So the economy is really bad, people are tense, and life seems a bit bleak for many. As a way of something positive, I am going to give away 2"x3" mini paintings to anyone who wants them. Each piece is completely unique. I got the idea from Lyndsay McCandless who is doing a first Friday featuring free art cards.Feel free to pass this on to others who may appreciate it.

All you have to do is send an envelope to me with a SASE inside and I will send you the piece.

Mixed Media Works on Paper/Board

I have wanted to do some work that would combine the surface complexities of the oil paintings with a more immediate drawing like investigation. By using collaged layers of semi transparent papers and applying only water based media, I found I could layer up, manipulate, and quickly respond to ideas.

The results of my experimenting are three new pieces that are going to the show in Pella, Iowa. They are all 30"x22" collage, copy transfer, acrylic, gesso, and pencil on board.

Work for Central College Show...Part I

Happy New Year! Thanks to everyone who supported me and my work this last year. It has been an amazing year. I had three solo shows, won an artists fellowship, built a studio, did some commission work, and was in multiple group shows. I am in the process of setting goals for next year and can't wait to see what happens.

I have a solo show at Central College in Pella, Iowa in February. I have already delivered some of the work and the rest is almost ready to go. Below are a few pieces that will be included in the show. This month I am showing work in our annual faculty show at CWC.

Please keep in touch and feel free to pass my blog link around to anyone and everyone.
