The K-9 portfolio is available. The project consists of 9 screenprints created by First Hand Editions in Charlotte, NC. The portfolio includes 9 images of iconic furniture by Mies Van der Rohe, Warren Platner  and Eero  Saarinen. All of which are produced by Knoll. The portfolio is an edition of 40, with 5 A.P.'s and 3 P.P.'s. each print is signed and number on the reverse. Please go to Solomon Projects in Atlanta or to if you are interested in the portfolio which retails for 1000.00.
so we spent last weekend in San Francisco and Napa Valley. had an amazing time. It was great to see SFMOMA again. it had been too long. great to see a concentration of California artists too. Bruce Connor, Wallace Berman, Baldessari, and of course Ruscha.

i found this massive pile of I-beams on the walk to dinner on Friday night. pretty impressive and quite inspirational. the wheels are turning already.

Napa Valley was great. saw some beautiful wineries, tasted some delicious bubbles and ate like a fool. it was so good. we also took in the Hess Collection it was nice to see a collection of Franz Gertsch prints. i forgot how large they were. 

all in all a fantastic trip with great friends. i wasn't ready to come home just yet. but of course i have that pile of I-beams to work on.

Sneak Peak

Sneak Peak of a future installation 

starting my blog

hi welcome to my blog, this is a new adventure for me that i am looking forward to. As many of you already know my framing operation has closed. Sorry, but the Saltworks building was sold rather suddenly forcing all of us to find new homes/studios.

i am happy to say we are all on our feet and moving forward. i have taken a new studio at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center in the old Nexus Press building. i am very excited about this space as it is the first time in several years that my studio is 100% dedicated to the fabrication of my work. i'd like to thank the Contemporary for allowing me to use such a great space.

new equipment has been arriving and i am hoping to be operational by August 14th. just in time to finish up the last few pieces for the show that opens at Indiana State Universities gallery on Oct 9th.

This show is going to be very exciting as it is an continuation of the Solomon Projects show last year. It will include modern houses from the area as well as the California houses that i am so fond of. 

stay tuned for exhibition photos and information about the other shows i am currently working on for next year. i also have news of new print projects. One of which will be released in the next few days.
