In addition to the drawing exhibition, poets were invited to write a poem inspired by the drawings in the exhibition. A wonderful poem by Lauren Amalia Redding was written in response to my drawing:

Solo Exhibition at Miami University

The Past is Present: Metalpoint Drawings in the 21st Century

My solo exhibit at the Miami University Art Museum was a great success.  Over thirty preparatory and finished metal point drawings were on display.  The curatorial staff included several of my actual still life setups as an installation component to the exhibit.

I was invited as a guest artist as part of the museum’s Contemporary Artist Forum series and visited the Miami University campus for three days.  I met with studio art majors for critiques and discussions on marketing. I also presented a public lecture about my work:  Echoes from the Past, An Ongoing Dialogue with Art History.
