Bangkok Art Walk

Here is another art work from my trip to Thailand. One early morning the concierge at our hotel gave me a map of the art works (mostly graffiti) within a few blocks of the hotel. So, I walked around, and my favorite area was carved graffiti on a long concrete wall that curved along a street near the hotel.

Spring is here

I recently returned from an amazing trip to SE Asia. In Bangkok we visited the Jim Thompson house/museum. He was one of the most famous Americans in Thailand and was responsible for reviving the silk industry there in the 1950-60s. Check out Jim Thompson -designer at Wikipedia. He led a very interesting life and disappeared without a trace on a trip to Malaysia in 1967. The glass art here was inspired by a trio of red umbrellas shading the side of his house that bordered a lovely garden and shade trees.

Fall has arrived

Halloween is almost here, and I just installed my new art work at 5 Points Gallery in Durham, NC for October. Stores are already showing Christmas decorations, but wait. We need some Halloween fun first this month. Now I’m starting to gear up for the Carolina Designer Craftsmen Art Market at the Raleigh Convention Center, Nov 1-3.


Art of Mind exhibit at Imurj Gallery in Raleigh

I will have my piece “Augmented Eternity” in the Art of Mind exhibit at Imurj gallery in Raleigh during May. The exhibit benefits the Alzheimer Association, and it brings back memories of my mother’s last 3 years in the memory unit of a retirement community. While I’m pretty certain she didn’t have Alzheimer’s disease, she did have dementia. She was lost in time and place, but she always knew people and even learned something new while she was in memory care. I will be interested in seeing the exhibit, and there will be a reception next Friday, 1st Friday art walk in Raleigh.
