A Piece of Heaven - Amherst, MA

Riding bareback on my horse Tumbleweed on the beach, mixed media monoprint

What is your heaven on earth? This is the question I asked everyone I met over a period of two years and the results of this search is an exhibition which is presently at Amherst Town Hall Gallery. The Amherst Public Arts Commission will be hosting an artist's reception for me on May 1, 5 - 8 PM. It seems appropriate that this opening is happening on May Day. A day to honor workers labor, including artists.

Wonderful article written by writer extraordinaire, Bonnie Wells the former Art Director for the Amherst Bulletin (She came out of retirement to write this piece!)
