After some thought, I am planning to step back from public gallery shows. I still plan to paint, make prints, and furnish visuals for various purposes. I may submit to an occasional group show. I will still be glad to take part in live painting events.
I do still plan to host a solo show in the Schlafly Library’s Gallery space in August.
I don’t consider this an admission of failure, as an artist, so much as an acknowledgement that the local scene is not that brisk when it comes to abstract art, and that my art does not really have a social angle, so public shows and receptions are sparsely attended.
I hope you are not sad about this, I am not.
Actually, I am already having some interesting thoughts about what to do with all of these dozens of interesting paintings.
