Project statement for DUMBO Open Studios:
"I’ll have some new paintings on view, and, to mark the 30th anniversary of my graduation from grad school, I’m organizing a group show featuring work by current MFA students from the University of Connecticut. Not only is UConn my MFA alma mater, but I’m teaching a seminar there this semester. The show will come together with help from Kenny Heyne, UConn class of 2024, and Art and Art History Department Chair John J. Richardson."
