Past Exhibits & Shows


2019

The Mount Olive Library

October 16 - November 14

Strange tales in stone exhibit and presentation. I think it was the best of my 4 presentations, a friendly crowd into old school monsters. They wanted to keep it up after Halloween for the Election Day crowd on November 5th. So much for the days of being the scariest thing in the room.


Guild of Creative Art 27th Annual Open Juried Show

October 6 - 31

Last year I went all watercolors, this year 2 out of my 3 entries for this event were drawings. Like Thee from the strange tales in stone collection won an acheivement award, otherwise known as "honorable mention". 40% of entries were accepted and 20% of those won something, no paying prize but still a good day.

MonsterBash 2019

Got a lot of admiration but not much in sales. Still, a fun event and I got inquiries about making strange tales in stone into a book and illustrating a horror novel cover. Best of all my Frankenstein and bride painting was bought by the bride!
