Back in April I painted 8 mid-size canvases of buildings and places
located in the city of St. Louis. The paintings were specifically
created for a show from Jun – Aug at East Central College
Gallery in Union, MO. After that show I wrapped them up
and promptly stored them on a canvas rack in my studio.
About a month or so later my friend from Iowa, Karl Haglund,
emailed asking about the paintings. Karl is a painter, well
known for his guitar paintings but he’s also a photographer
and has recently opened a new photography studio in his
home town of Charles City, IA. The studio will not only house
his printing/painting empire but also serve as a place for him
to focus on photography and as it so happens, it’s a great
place for art openings and that’s exactly what he’ll be having
on Friday Nov 6, featuring, yes, you guessed it, 8 mid-size
canvases of buildings and places located in the city of St. Louis,
painted by, me. The show is to help celebrate the grand opening
of his photography studio and I'm delighted to be a part of it.
In addition to the paintings there will also be a special musical guest
will be on hand to perform live at the opening.
