I’m busy preparing art and excited to show in two new exhibits!

Two exhibits, opening almost at the same time in late August 2023. The first will be a group show with artists Margi Grill and David Spohn at ArtReach St. Croix in Stillwater, Minnesota from August 24-September 30th.

The second with be a solo exhibit being held at the Reedy Gallery at the Minnesota Landscape Arboredum starting August 23rd and runs through October 29th. More details about both showings to come!

In the meantime, make the most of the wonders summer time offers.
