Opening this Friday and through the month of June will be a landscape exhibition curated by my friend and fellow artist Carlyle Wolfe at the Southside Gallery in Oxford, MS. The exhibition focuses on landscapes of Mississippi, and so I had a couple of paintings from Bailey's Woods (the woods behind William Faulkner's home, Rowan Oak) to share.
Currently on view is my solo exhibition at River Gallery in Chattanooga, Inside/Out. River Gallery is part of an incredibly charming arts district founded by a visionary effort of the Portera family. If you want to visit Chattanooga (and you should, it's a gorgeous place), make sure to visit and stay in the Bluff View Arts District. It's walking distance to the Hunter Museum as well.

I am now preparing for my next solo exhibition that opens in September at the Isaac Delgado Fine Art Gallery at Delgado Community College in City Park, New Orleans (seriously one of the prettiest spaces for showing art in the city).
There happen to be a couple of new articles about Melissa Martin and our creative collaboration in the Mosquito Supper Club this past year. Foodie alert: There are RECIPES in these articles!
The other piece can be found in the Summer issue of Modern Farmer Magazine. Here's a shot of Melissa behind my "Dancing Palms" painting:
I'm looking forward to the days ahead, but for now the ceramics studio is finally getting going, and I'm sinking back into my happy place, into my process in the land of swampy bliss.
