Taking Stock

February 14, 2010

So, it's time I took a look at what I did last year, professionally.


Participated in the "4 x 4 New Members' Show" at Gallery West.

Began meeting with M.L. for the spring semester as mentor for her master's degree in painting with the AAUSF.

Applied for Strauss Fellowship at ACFC.

Taught a workshop in Photoshop techniques.


Visited the Lorton Workhouse with S.T.


Visited NYC for photos, gallery visits


Applied to MPA for solo show

Delivered 6 paintings to Antreasian Gallery, Baltimore, MD


Delivered 2 paintings to Applegate Gallery, Vienna, VA

Installed five paintings at Artomatic, D.C. Got some terrific press; made several top ten lists.

Finished my teaching sessions with M.L. and the AAUSF. Enjoyed them tremendously.


Visited Arlington Arts Center show with S.M.


Applied to City of Gaithersburg for solo show


Solo show at Applegate

Solo show at Barnes and Noble, Reston VA


Placed first in "Timeless" show, Bethesda, MD; awarded a spot in a group show in 2010


Notification of show award from City of Gaithersburg

Visited NYC for more photos


Accepted into 13th National Show

Participated in the Small Works Show at the Oerth Gallery

In between all that activity was, of course, a great deal of painting. I worked up from 3 hours a day to a set schedule from 10am - 5pm, five days a week. In terms of moving my career forward, it was a pretty good year: I had three solo shows, participated in two external group shows, and now have my work in three different galleries. But this year is really going to be busy, with at least four shows on tap already, and that doesn't count the regular monthly exhibits at Gallery West.
