Artwork is framed and ready to hang for my exhibition at Vesuvio Pizzeria & Spaghetti House! My wife Jaime has become crucial to my exhibition preparation. She helps with the framing and hanging to make each show a breeze to set up. I most definitely could not do it without her. We will be hanging the artwork in the restaurant this afternoon.
I have a long and happy history with Vesuvio. When I started out as an exhibiting artist nearly ten years ago, my work caught the eye of the owner, Piera. Piera has graciously invited me to exhibit in her restaurant every year since then and I am thrilled to do it. She is a fabulous host and her customers are incredibly supportive and receptive to my work. It’s a beautiful relationship that is blissful and effortless.
The show this time around consists of original artwork from my most recent publication “Dwellers of Lurching Swill.” Each artwork includes the poem associated with it. This is the fourth and last instalment of artwork from the book. Piera has told me that patrons routinely get up from their tables and walk around the restaurant to read all the poems. The most common question asked by diners? “Is this artwork from a book?” Because the book is now published there will be a copy of it at the bar for everyone to read. You can see sample pages and purchase your own copy at my online store. Click this link to check it out.
The second most asked question is “Do you have prints of the artworks?” I can now answer YES! This show marks the first time that I will have signed prints of every artwork. $15 for each print or two for $25. I will be adding the prints to my online store soon.
Reception is this Sunday, June 8, 3-5pm. Details are below, and you can let me know that you’ll be attending on my Facebook event by clicking here.
