Spring Break is behind us here in Austin and hopefully so is my break from bi-weekly posting. Life finds its ways of interrupting painting, and I have to allow that right now…I'll never get these days back with my girls.
However, exciting things are still going on! I've been waiting to share this and now it's a reality:
A piece I did in 2012, "Old Smokehouse," is part of the collection of New York-based curator, artist, and collector, Ken Ratner. Over the next two years, several museums will host his collection in an exhibit entitled "A Feeling of Humanity: Western Art from the Ken Ratner Collection," of which Old Smokehouse is a part. The Mattatuck Museum in Connecticut is showing the collection from March 16 - April 27. The Rockwell Museum of Art in Corning, New York (Oct. 3 Jan. 11), the Bone Creek Museum in David City, Nebraska (summer 2015), and possibly one more venue will follow.
Here are a few words from Ken Ratner, followed by a link to a write-up about the Mattatuck event:
