Monsters, Movies & The Dude solo show

Karloff: Frankenstein's Monster — 9" x 12" Gouache, ink and ink wash on Bristol Board
This month, starting today in fact, my solo show titled "Monsters, Movies & The Dude" will be up at the IJ & Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center in Salt Lake City, UT.

The show will run from October 1 through the 30 and will be located at the gallery on the second floor lobby of the community center. The center is located at 2 North Medical Drive, Salt Lake City.

Lugosi: Dracula — 9" x 12" Gouache, ink and ink wash on Bristol Board.

An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 3 from 7p.m. to 9 p.m. and is free and open to the public. Refreshments (BEER!) and treats will be served as well.

The Dude or 'What the @#$% You Talking About?' — 9" x 12" digital print on paper
The show focuses on my love of popular culture in film and television. To celebrate October, there will be a large selection of new portrait studies of classic Universal and Hammer Horror characters and "Young Frankenstein." There are also several other horror movie inspired pieces, including drawings, paintings and retro movie posters of some of my favorite horror films.

There are also a select number of other works as well featuring the Indiana Jones films. "The Big Lebowski," "The Avengers," "Star Wars," "Star Trek," "Doctor Who" and "Harry Potter."

The original painting I did for Bryan Young's "Operation: Montauk" book cover will also be on display.

Everything but the "Operation: Montauk" piece will be for sale in the gallery and a portion of the proceeds for each sale goes to the JCC.

So if you happen to live in the Salt Lake area, I would love it if you could stop by the JCC for the reception or anytime this month to see my work up close and personal.
