A show coming up at Weaver Street Realty

I will have a small show at the Weaver Street Realty opening during the 2nd Friday ArtWalk in Carrboro/Chapel Hill. That'll be Friday August 14 from 6-9 at 116 East Main Street in Carrboro. I'll have adult refreshments to entice those who don't care about either 1) art or 2) my art. I have no idea what I'll be showing (some/most will be new) but there will be more info forthcoming. If you don't get my emailings about shows and wish to, just drop me an email. Hope to see you there!

Below is an old one that I've never shown so I might show it. From 2007 I think.

Picasso at the Nasher

A heads up for an upcoming show at the Duke Nasher Museum. "Picasso and the Allure of Language" opens on August 20th with a gala reception at 7 pm. For more information go the Nasher site.

The Nasher Museum presents a groundbreaking exhibition examining Pablo Picasso's lifelong relationship with writers and the many ways in which language affected his work. Picasso and the Allure of Language comprises some 60 works in all media by Picasso, as well as select examples by fellow artist Georges Braque, and photographs, letters, manuscripts and book projects by a diverse group of artists and writers. Together, these works illuminate Picasso's deep and multidimensional interest in writing and language, and challenge the notion of what have been considered highlights of his lifetime of work.

If you want to attend the opening I'd suggest going to the site and getting a ticket soon. The show runs through January 3, 2010.

2nd Friday Artwalk Carrboro/Chapel Hill

Don't forget the upcoming 2Friday Art Walk July 10 from 6-9. As always there will be plenty to see up and down Main and Weaver streets as well as Franklin Street and other locations. I highly recommend the opening at the Century Century, 100 N. Greensboro, of new oils by my friend and former roomie Steve Silverleaf. I think Steve's one of the most talented artists we have in this area and I'm very excited to see the new pieces.

The Artist and the Model - New work by Steven Silverleaf. The show is comprised of oil paintings and drawings in mixed media. The work concerns his ongoing investigation of the seated figure. The show is suitable for all ages.

For much more info please go to the 2ndFriday website.
