Word Works Exhibition



I'm thrilled to have drawings included in Word Works; an art exhibit running in conjunction with the Red Hook Literary Festival. All of the pieces in this group show are inspired by literature, books, and the written word. The five pieces I submitted are part of a larger series called World Tour. The drawings were inspired by a dilapidated old atlas. You can read the story behind them here, or see the full collection here. The exhibit runs until May 12. Have fun at the festival!

Some of the framed pieces from this series.

This Stephen King portrait was not framed in time for exhibit,
but I'm including it here because of the literary theme of this festival.

A special thanks to Rebekah Aronson for putting together this exhibit.
