The Sea and the Shore

Two-month solo show at Kennedy Gallery, Portsmouth, NH January – February 2018

Through the months of January and February, Kennedy Gallery will present The Sea and The Shore, a two-month show of marine oil paintings ranging in size from inches to feet. The paintings in this series evolved from earlier studies and plein air work.

A PUBLIC DEMO – Friday, Feb 2, 5 pm highlights the reception for the second month opening.

Environmental Impact

Several works from my Loomings series (see below) will be included in a traveling museum exhibition called Environmental Impact. The first venue to host the show will be North Carolina Arboretum in Asheville, NC, opening May 2020. Stay tuned for more info.


Four paintings from this series referencing Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick were currently being exhibited at the St. Botolph Club. Plans are in the works for an exhibition in Washington, D.C. Stay tuned as this evolves.
