My piece, What I Have Sewn, What I Have Left Undone, has been selected for the Wisconsin Visual Artists (WVA) juried exhibit Beneath the Surface in the Overture Center Gallery III from July 8 – September 15, 2013. The opening reception is Friday, July 12, 6-8 pm. This will be a group show of artwork based on the theme “beneath the surface,” in a wide range of media and styles. The Overture Center for the Arts is located at 201 State Street, Madison WI.
I am exhibiting two pieces, at the Pyle Center on the University of Wisconsin Madison Campus, in a group exhibit of works by the South Central Chapter of Wisconsin Visual Artists (WVA). The exhibit runs May 2 – May 30, 2013 at 702 Langdon Street in Madison, WI, with a reception on Saturday, May 18, 6-8 pm.

I am excited to announce that the book, Dwelling with Philippians: A Conversation with Scripture through Image and Word, published by Eerdmans, contains two of my images - Stand Firm and For Those In Captivity. It is available through Amazon and other book sellers.
Internationally exhibited artist Makoto Fujimura created an original lithograph, “Song of the Bird King” for the Geneva Forum which was held on the University of Wisconsin-Madison in February 2010. Only a few prints from this small edition are still available for purchase for only $500 (unframed). Please contact me if you are interested.
A painter, author, former appointee to the National Council on the Arts and founder of IAM (International Arts Movement), Fujimura is a deep thinker and engaging speaker. Raised and educated bi-culturally, Fujimura’s work fuses abstract expressionism, which he explored in the US, with the traditional Japanese art of Nihonga. His art speaks of hope and the deeper reconsideration of life’s meaning within the context of beauty. One who wrestles with deep issues of art, faith and humanity, Fujimura encourages us to see the culturally transformative potentials of creating extravagant, love-filled ‘Prodigal Art’.
