Now showing at the Lost Dog Cafe

It’s been a couple of years since I last showed at the Lost Dog Cafe in Binghamton, NY. Although it’s awkward for people to look at the art when there are diners at the tables (and there are always diners at the tables in the Lost Dog!), it’s a lovely space, with three distinct exhibit areas, each with a nice hanging system. So this morning I parked my car full of art in front of their door, hauled my goods in, and set to work. This is the last time I’ll exhibit my Unlikely Dance series for a while, I think. But it looks wonderful in the Lost Dog space, as I knew it would, along with a couple of studies for the series and two new dance-themed pieces — The Grove and Three Musicians.

This First Friday night I’ll be in the Lost Dog Lounge holding forth at Meet the Artist (or so I imagine; this will be my very first Meet experience). And this month I’ll have a good excuse to have lunch and perhaps a dinner at the Dog — yummy!

I also have a few pieces in a November group show with the Fine Arts Society of the Southern Tier, at the Krembs Gallery, UHS/Binghamton General Hospital, not shown here.

Unlikely Dance: Entry Hall finished, Golden Clouds and Green Skirt accepted!

I’ve finished Unlikely Dance: Entry Hall, though I haven’t yet done a “formal” photo of it — glare from the large area of black is giving me some problems. Some last-minute resolutions, such as a cool, thin glaze defining the profile of the central figure, and a more finished rendering of the face — along with the successful re-rendering of figure #1’s face — make me very happy with this painting.

And yay! Both of my submissions to the Roberson Regional juried biennial exhibit — Unlikely Dance: Golden Clouds and Unlikely Dance: Green Skirt — have been accepted into the show! Now to figure out whether/how to frame them…

I’ve also entered — and will enter — a few more biennial competitions; will write more about those as jury results come in.

Here’s the final progression of Unlikely Dance: Entry Hall:


The “Unlikely Dance” project was made possible by a grant from the Artists Fund of the Community Foundation for South Central New York
