I really must report in more often. It’s been a busy year on all fronts! I’ve finally updated my front page and went to a leadership seminar in June, Association of Academic Museums and Galleries/Kellogg Foundation Leadership Seminar held a Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. It was fantastic, and the skill are eminently transferable. Have you heard of Creative Capital, I went to a workshop some years ago that was held at Aljira, a center for contemporary art in Newark, NJ. I do believe that I have accomplished some of the goals I set at that meeting. Hum… Any way shortly the new academic year begins, Yeah! and yeah. I am looking forward to producing new paintings two of which I will post here soon. Stay in touch!

Wow it’s been to long since I looked at my site. Mountains of work keep me pretty busy. Some of you may know that I started a PhD program in Museology and am currently transferring to another institution. Wish me luck with that. I have had my studio open during First Friday here in good ole Rochester. The response to my work has been very good. If this were New Year’s Day I’d promise myself and everyone else that I’ll keep my website more up to date; that’s a promise I have to keep.
There are two new works posted in the Signs of Civilization page. I considered the earlier pieces drawings, mixed media drawings, well, now I think I am back to “painting.” What’s the difference? Use of color. That’s it plain and simple. Color against and with color. To the Canvas!

I’ve been busy. I’ve completed several more Signs drawings that need to be up loaded. Recently I acquired a new studio space at the Hungerford Artists building in Rochester, NY and I am getting ready for First Friday. I will also have available in my studio an installation of prints and works on paper for Merchants Prints and Drawings, contemporary and historical. I can’t wait for Thanksgiving and Christmas can you? Do you need any gifts for the holidays? Why not art!

It’s the middle of the summer and I am back at work. Here’s hoping everyone had a good time, BBQing, tanning, even though its bad for us and sweating in some of the hottest weather in a long time. Well, since last summer. As for me, we went to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. It was great! The weather was good, and there is salt water everywhere! I definitely want a cottage by the sea and maybe a boat to get there next time instead of driving. Next time we go north we’ll visit Labrador and New Foundland, talk about the middle of way out there!

Mexico was terrific! The students were wonderful and talented. I would love to go back for a few weeks to make art and develop a museum related course. A new announcement: I have been invited to be a Board member on the Genesee Community College Art Gallery Advisory Council, and I am now the Chair of the Subcommittee on Gallery Policy. I am honored indeed.
I was a awarded a Faculty Travel Grant and was able to spend a week at the Universidad de las Americas Puebla as visiting artist and curator. I gave two lectures. The first, a Short Survey of African American Art and the second lecture, Curatorship in the University Gallery: Three Mandates, and as visiting artist I met with approximately 15 Senior Thesis students about their very ambitious projects. In addition eight of my new drawings were exhibited.
