the daily grind wins people’s choice award
every picture tells a story
FANTASTIC EKPHRASTIC is an amazing multidisciplinary group exhibition featuring live presentations of creative writing—performed right in front of the visual art that inspired It. Each year the event brings together some of Tampa Bay’s top talent and showcases their work in a truly unique way. A Benefit for KEEP ST. PETE LIT, the show’s opening weekend was a tremendous success at SOFT WATER STUDIOS, St Petersburg, FL.
I am not only grateful to have been invited to participate in this year’s exhibition by curator Carrie Jadus, but am humbled and thrilled to announce my artistic collaboration THE DAILY GRIND won the People’s Choice Award by popular vote of the attendees. A great honor indeed, considering the high level of excellence evident throughout the show. Read a complete review in CREATIVE PINELLAS >> here.
a winning combination
A great deal of credit goes to my writing partner, Lisa Spencer, who divined a captivating narrative that is warm, insightful, quirky and downright hilarious—all based on the imagery in my new 8′ diptych painting, THE DAILY GRIND. Thanks also to Sculptor/Performer, Mark Aeling, who delivered an inspired dramatic reading of Lisa’s piece at the event. You can read her creative writing >> here.
