I'm happy to invite anyone who will be in the area this weekend to stop by and share a glass of wine with me at the Davis Gallery summer group show opening reception. Davis represents a talented group of artists, many of whom will be attending the opening. We always love to see friends and supporters at openings! The three new pieces above are available and will be in the show.

This year the exhibition focuses on "radial compositions, luminescent surfaces, circular shapes, and all things Radiant. The goal of the exhibit is to invite the audience to explore the importance of form, composition, and tone, by studying how each piece fits into the show's parameters."

My take on the Radiant concept was to select sunlit structures and/or create compositions with a radiating lines to lead the eye into and around the painting. I hope you'll stop in Saturday night--I'd love to see you.

Opening reception: Saturday, July 15th from 7-9pm 
The show will run from July 15th through August 19th.
