I’ll be showing a new series of drawings at the Irma Freeman Center for Imagination in the Garfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh from October 4th Through November 9th, 2019. The group show, titled The Salvation of Art: Pittsburgh by Pittsburgh Artists, is curated by Sheila Ali and includes the work of twenty established Pittsburgh Artists. The show also marks the ten year anniversary of the Irma Freeman Center for Imagination.

For The Salvation of Art: Pittsburgh by Pittsburgh Artists, I’ve returned to a medium that is at the core of artistic practice: drawing and sketching. There is something immediate about a doodle or sketch. The medium can capture the feeling of a moment better than a photograph or complex painting. I’ve visited Pittsburgh places, making ink drawings on-site. The places are ones that I have frequented during my time as an artist in Pittsburgh.
