Please join me as I present new work based on images from Italy.
This current exhibition at the ArtHaus Gallery in Decorah, Iowa explores the way that weather and time change our world.
“Elegant Decay” will present nine new works of pastel on board, produced after leading two student groups on travels through Italy this summer.
I have tried to capture the “history of place” in these works, rendering pastels that record water damage, construction changes, paint and stone deterioration throughout Venice.
The exhibition opens October 4th in Decorah, Iowa and will run through October, then opens November 5th at the Lyon Smith Gallery in Winona as part of the Downtown Art Party on the first Tuesday of each month.
