Opening and Award Ceremony for Modportrait 2016


Tonight is the award ceremony and opening of the Modportrait 2016 at the Museo IAACC Pablo Serrano in Zaragoza, Spain.  My painting Enchanted (shown above) will receive a Honorable Mention.  The show will remain up until the end of July before it moves to the MEAM in Barcelona.  A link to a nice article in Spanish about the show can here.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the event this evening.  I would like to personally thank Jose Enrique Gonzalez, director of Galeria Artelibre, and jury for recognizing my picture.  The Galerie Artelibre together with the MEAM under the leadership of Jose Manuel Infiesta have greatly contributed to the reawakening of a sincere appreciation of figurative art in Europe.

The Arte Laguna Prize show opened last weekend and it was a wonderful event.  In addition to being very well attended, there was a positive energy and a lot of engaging work.  My painting “Consolation of Philosophy” held its own and attracted a lot of interest.  The show is up until the 9th of April.  For more information click here.
