If your summer travel plans take you through Indiana in the coming weeks, I hope you will check out my forthcoming solo show at iMOCA, titled White Walls. The exhibition will feature 11 new paintings and 2 prints from my ongoing series exploring the architecture of exhibition space.

I created the two prints in the show during a two-week residency with Zygote Press (http://zygotepress.com/) in Cleveland this winter. I am incredibly grateful to the folks at Zygote for the opportunity to learn a variety of printmaking techniques, and I was fortunate to work with the very talented Christi Birchfield (http://christibirchfield.com/home.html), who helped me turn the ideas in my head into actual images on paper. My residency was generously supported by a Colombel-Soros Award.

Several of the paintings in the iMOCA show were produced during a residency at the Ucross Foundation (http://www.ucrossfoundation.org/) in Wyoming this April/May. I owe my thanks to Raymond Plank, the founder of Ucross, and the wonderful staff at the Foundation. I could not have asked for a better setting in which to work.
