  • Serving as curator of a small museum/gallery, hosting exhibitions of a broad range of mediums and acclaim, my favorite show will continue to be our Biennial College Challenge. We showcase student work which is untethered by commercial motive and driven almost exclusively by what Vonnegut and Matisse spoke of…an aching need for the creators to find a voice and as a consequence, their enormous personal discovery is palpable. It always sells, despite it’s rudimentary execution, while the savvy and technically slick marketers’ works often hang uninteresting and soulless.

  • The “Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming……….by Kurt Vonnegut, is an important message. I have had mental and artistic blocks starting a painting because I have focused on ‘what will people want,and like, and is it going to be good enough for someone to buy’ instead of painting to express myself. This is a good reminder of why we should paint, etc.
