Creative Influences: Artworks exhibition opens in Lake Charles, LA

passingthrough_1I started a new series of drawings inspired by light coming through the trees onto my studio floor while I was a resident at the Vermont Studio Center. My first drawing of this series is in an invitational exhibition at McNeese State University in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The piece, called Passing Through, is a charcoal drawing and is 22" x 30". The premise of this exhibition was for the curator to pick a variety of art professors from around the US. In turn, each professor had to pick three of their past students to be included in the exhibition also. Doug DeVinny was my professor in the exhibit and his influence still comes through in my work.

The exhibition is at the Abercrombie Gallery, Shearman Fine Arts Center, McNeese State University from July 8 until August 21.
