I'm pleased to share that one of my mixed media paintings "Luncheon with Billie Swofford" is included in the 2018 GoggleWorks Center for the Arts 12th Annual Juried Exhibition, located at 201 Washington Street, Reading, PA 19601. The show runs May 4 through 31, 2018.  The exhibition catalog is available to view online HERE.

GoggleWorks Center for the Arts is a place to develop skills, ask questions, experiment freely, and investigate the human spirit. They create a dialogue between the established and experimental, the contemporary and the traditional. Through exceptional arts education and engaging community programming, they inspire people to expand the boundaries of art making, personal growth and appreciation for material culture.

This show was open to all media, and juried by Thora Jacobson, Executive Director of the Philadelphia Art Alliance, the 12th Annual Juried Exhibition aims to present a selection of exemplary contemporary work from artists around the country.
