For the month of December 2012, I had a solo exhibit of my art at The Art Center of Corpus Christi, www.artcentercc.org. The Art Center of Corpus Christi and the Art Association of Corpus Christi hosted very nice opening and closing receptions in December. I am honored to have been the Juror for the 45th Annual Silver Cup Show of the Art Association of Corpus Christi and that exhibit was displayed concurrently with my solo exhibit. The painting shown above is titled "Through the Looking Glass" and is the invitation image to my December exhibit at The Art Center of Corpus Christi. Exciting News 2014: The Art Center of CC is publishing a book of the Artists' exhibits.
In November 2012, The Art Lovers' Cookbook, San Antonio Edition, was released. I am one of the San Antonio artists invited and selected to be published in the book with an original recipe for Hot Peach-Glazed Shrimp and an image of my art. You can order the cookbook at www.artloverscookbooks.com. There is an interesting article about the cookbook at www.savorsa.com which includes a quote by me from the book.
The prestigious New York magazine, Fine Art Connoisseur, featured me in an article in their January/February, 2013 issue. In November 2013, the magazine featured one of my paintings on their website. In their July 2014 issue, they highlighted my six-month exhibit at the Institute of Texan Cultures with an image of the painting purchased by the University of Texas at San Antonio.
