I’m really excited to be working with the UMCA to celebrate their 40th anniversary. This gem of an institution is nestled against the departments of art and theater in the Fine Arts Center at UMass Amherst. There will be a number of events this year, beginning with this celebratory exhibition.
As soon as I crafted the suite of logos for the Heretick Theatre Lab (see last post), I had the opportunity to use them. The Noir Series, running three nights in November, presents four original theatrical pieces drenched in one of my favorite genres: Noir. They’ll be onstage AND streamed live, which I think is a fantastic experiment.
Sometimes a personal art project evolves into real work. I didn’t expect my “upcycled” action figures to fall into that category, but they have. I have been collecting vintage toys—from plastic models to nativity scenes to Star Wars figures—taking them apart, re-combining the pieces, and painting them. The result has been over a hundred little sculptures ranging from the fabulous to the grotesque. I’ve been selling them at upcycling art fairs and online at my Etsy store.
I have another show of recent illustrations hanging at the Green Bean, in downtown Northampton, Massachusetts. Please go check them out.
I have a slew of paintings in the Side Effects show at Paper City Studios in Holyoke, Massachusetts, opening this Friday, May 9th. My work will be displayed beside some great artists in this medical-themed show. Please come check it out. These posters are my work as well.
I have a number of paintings on display at the wonderful Easthampton, Mass movie theatre-cum-restaurant Popcorn Noir, in a show I’m calling “Family and other Monsters.” If you’re in the area, please check them out. If you’re not, and would like to see better photos of the work, please write me.

I’m psyched to be joining artists like Bruce Fowler, Gary Hallgren, Adam Mulcahy, and Dean Nimmer, for this steampunk-ish show in Holyoke’s Paper City Studios, 80 Race Street, Holyoke. It opens tomorrow, Friday, 10.13, 6pm–9pm. I have four paintings and a sculpture in the show (these are terrible iphone photos). That’s my poster, too.
