Upcoming Group Exhibition at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts

Today I delivered this painting to the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts for installation in the upcoming exhibit, “Double Take: Artists Respond to the Collection”. The show runs August 23, 2014 – January 4, 2015 (reception is Sept. 5th).

It should be an interesting exhibition featuring the works of regional artists hung next to pieces from the permanent collection, which have inspired them in some way.

  • “I put a lot of things into my work which are very personal to me. So how can the public feel these things? I think most people get to my work through the back door. They’re attracted by the realism and they sense the emotion and the abstraction — and eventually, I hope, they get their own powerful emotion.”
    ~ Andrew Wyeth
