I am excited to be a part of "Art of the State," an amazing exhibition at the Arvada Center for the Arts & Humanities in Arvada, CO. The statewide juried exhibit garnered 1,635 entries from 588 artists in all media. Jurors Collin Parson (Curator of Exhibitions at the Arvada Center) and Dean Sobel (Clyfford Still Museum Director) selected 191 works by 160 artists. My painting "Gatherer" made the cut and is showcased beautifully on the first floor.

Exhibition runs through March 31, 2013. Opening Reception and Awards Presentation: Thursday, January 24, 6-9pm. Click here for a link to the Arvada Center for more information on upcoming panel discussions on the Art of the State exhibit.
