Please join me for The Absolutes: Big Small Stories, a solo exhibition at the Massillon Museum this summer. This show combines selected works that span the whole breadth of this series. It also includes several pieces created on location in Europe, including a painting fresh off the plane from Dresden, Germany. Located in northeast Ohio, MassMu is a local art and history museum. It has significant collections of photography; costumes and textiles; china, glass, and pottery; domestic appliances; and circus memorabilia. The museum belongs to the national museum advocacy conglomerate  American Alliance of Museums and has had backing from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) & Blue Star Museums, the Ohio Arts Council (OAC), and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) & Museums For All.

I’m excited to announce that the Massillon Museum will be hosting a solo show of my artwork in 2022! Currently slated for the summer months, the exhibition will present works from “The Absolute” series of oil paintings. Located in northeast Ohio, MassMu belongs to the national museum advocacy conglomerate  American Alliance of Museums and has had backing from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), the Ohio Arts Council (OAC), and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

Naturally, there’s still a lot of planning and time between now and the summer of 2022, but I’m enthusiastic about the opportunity and wanted to share this exciting news as it came in. More info and posts will come as things get buttoned down, but I’d like to be the first to thank the museum and all of their supporters for the excellent groundwork that they have laid for artists. I look forward to it!

*Update* Since this article, CICA has started to charge significant exhibitor fees that weren’t present during my exhibition. I do not generally support costly exhibitor fees.

After finishing out the year on display at the Czong Institute for Contemporary Art Museum in South Korea, my painting Absolute: Earnest has come home. The exhibition called Artist Statement has been published in an art-book that showcases a side-by-side documentation of the artwork and the artist’s statement. The concept behind the exhibit and the art-book is to show the connections between an artist’s work and their written philosophies. Read more below.
