Come see my artwork at the Gage Academy of Art
. I'm delighted to be part of a group show with Jim Woodring, David Chelsea and several others whose work "displays exceptional technical skill and creative narrative story lines." Sounds good to me.

The Gage Academy of Art is an independent art school in the tradition of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and the Art Students League in New York. It offers the technical foundations of an artist's training, as well as programs that nature's vision and creative potential.
"Our goal is simple," they say in their literature, "to engage you." Opening Friday, August 5th. Up for a month.
