Artists for Africa

I have a couple of small pieces in a charity show in London called ‘Artists for Africa’. The exhibition opens on the 23rd of February at the Oakham Gallery in St. Jame’s (27 Bury Street, London SW1). For more information on the Friends of Africa charity, visit their website. The reception is on the 23rd from 6:30 to 8 pm (I won’t be making it though, too much work here at the moment).

Painters For

This week my traveling painting group will be having our first exhibition in Munich. Our goal is to raise funds for the Myanmar Foundation and Interplast München, both of whose incredible work helping the people of Myanmar we witnessed on our trip there earlier this year. A beautiful gallery space has been donated for the show by the Dorotheum.

We also have a new website with examples of the work, short biographies of each of the artists, and a short film on the Myanmar Foundation.

I’m off for New York today and I’ll be away for three weeks, so most likely no blog updates. My solo show this year is at the Grenning Gallery in Sag Harbor. I did the catalog myself for my upcoming solo exhibition and exported a pdf if anyone would like to see it online (its just under 1 megabite). The show will be Tuscan landscapes from last year as well as a few of the sketches from Myanmar in February.

Cami Vernissage

Thanks to everyone who came, we had a huge turn-out. Everyone was very complimentary about the work and the space (and the wine), and we even managed to sell some paintings despite the fact you could barely move around inside the gallery. Below are some images from the evening, and the work can be seen on the Cami gallery website.

I wasn’t really drinking 3 glasses of wine at the same time.

Update: Here is a short video of the show.


Cami Exhibition

The invitations have been mailed and the catalog should be printed by the end of the week. For my part all the paintings are ready and framed and waiting by the door.

The gallery has asked for 25 paintings, but most of the work I did this year is quite large, and I don’t think they can honestly fit it all. It will be nice to have too much work for a change and just show the best of it.

You can see the work on their website.
