Tonight was the opening of the SCAD Museum of Art! A very exciting moment in the history of SCAD as well as the city of Savannah. I'm looking forward to being able to enjoy it for my last academic year as well as during future visits. I also know the architect of the museum, Christian Sottile, and have had the pleasure of visiting his office/studio and discussing the ideas behind the museum. It has been very nice to be able to get a behind the scenes look at the design of the museum. This has also been a lot of help in the research for my thesis project. Christian agreed to be a topic consultant for my thesis and discussions I have had with him have proved very helpful and I am very excited to continue working on my thesis. As for the museum, if you are in Savannah you should stop on by! You will enjoy it for sure.

The show that Kimberly David and I have been working on for the last couple of months is finally up and running. We had the reception tonight and the turn out was much better than expected. The space was very packed at points and everyone liked the work very much. I got to meet some new people and reconnect with some familiar faces who I had not seen for many years. Overall I would count it as a huge success and I am proud to say that the show will be up for several more weeks. Also Kimberly and I have already gotten an invitation to show our work at Episcopal again someday. Thanks to everyone who came out for the opening, I hope you come back to see it again, and those who have not seen it I hope you can make time to drop by. Both Kimberly and I put a lot of hard work into this show and we would love to share it with you. Peace! - (example piece - Urban Theater - Venice, Italy - 2010)

Hello all! So, October is going to be an exciting month for me because I have a gallery going up at my high school. The gallery is called 'Perspectives' and it is a joint effort with my fellow alumni Kimberly David. You can follow the Link to her site and check out all her cool art. Kimberly will be showing several of her paintings and prints and I will be showing a few different collections of photographs. The opening reception is on October 19th at 6pm in the Berg Gallery in the lobby of the Munnerlyn Center, Jacksonville FL. The show will be up until December!
