…that’s what this painting is really about.
Opening Reception at Artisan Gallery this Friday night, April 11, 5-9pm (for multiple shows!)
Here’s the skinny on the 2 separate shows (actually, there’s 3 shows; I have work in 2 of them) at Artisan Gallery….
This is a linocut block (the black-inked image you see here) printed on top of a “split run” or “rainbow roll” print on paper. 100% cotton, 300gm, high quality paper measures 11-1/4in x 25in.
That’s Rosie, the English Bulldog (I met her when we took our hogs in to Avon Locker in Darlington), mellow as usual, resting atop a circus pony. The cat in the fez is the critic, who obviously doesn’t think much of the show (nor wearing hats). Dexter is below, advertising the event—any excuse to run around with a precious stick in his mouth.
See detailed close-ups of the print and purchasing information at the Market Weight Press Shop.

Also, Paoli’s Artisan Gallery shows are up and I think, pretty terrific. The one in the front end of the gallery is Flora and Fauna. I’ve got the new 48in goose print (reduction print–see it here) showing (over to the left on a bright blue wall that matches the blue sky in the goose painting(!), and a cutout woodcut pig.
Then, back in The Cooler (also at Artisan Gallery), it’s the Habitat ReStore Salvage Art Show and Benefit, April 10-June 2 Check out all the salvage art made by local artists. My favorites: Michael Roberts’ Hammera (a figure made out of piano hammers, from an entire piano that Michael purchased at a thrift shop), and Fish Spoon #2 by Linda Kelen (a cold-forged, chased/repoussed white bronze spoon). I’ve got 3 small wooden cutout figures–woodcut or linocuts. See all the work that’s currently showing at the online ReStore Salvage Art show April 19th – June 2nd
