bizarre and surreal show, currently on exhibit at the franklin park arts center, purcellville, virginia

Currently at the Franklin Park Arts Center, a new exhibit called "Bizarre and Surreal" is on display through August 8th, 2017. Last weekend Kris and I went to the opening reception, and had such a fun time. I even ran into an old friend and colleague from when I began teaching in northern Virginia, who is now doing some stellar work of her own (see the image directly below, by Diane Dennis)! Plus, my Splotch Monster Island piece, "Sea Shaman" got an Honorable mention award, as part of the Friends of Franklin Park annual creative challenge. Nice! As always, the FPAC put on a stellar show, and it simply could not have been possible without the amazing work submitted by area artists. There's everything from paintings, to drawings, to relief sculpture, to vintage experimental video installation, even! Check it out soon, before it all vanishes away like a strange and beautiful dream.
