I'm excited that this piece was selected to be part of the Springville Museum of Art's 2018 Spring Salon. Morning Pep Talk. 36" x 36."
I'm excited to have been chosen as an "Emerging Artist" by American Art Collector Magazine's April 2018 issue.
This Friday come and find out what people were willing to trade in order to get their first original work of art for their home. Artist and curator Clint Whiting asked fourteen artists to give him works of art that he would then find a home for. The requirements to receive an artwork were, it had to go into a home without any original art, and the recipient would be asked to give an object to the artist that they felt was a fair trade. Come and see the artworks and the objects they were exchanged for at The Rio Gallery in downtown Salt Lake this Friday, January 19th, from 6-9 PM. I'll have work in the show along with some of my favorite SLC artists.
Artist/Dad is a show I curated that includes eleven artist fathers. The premise for the show was simple: How does being a dad affect your art? Each participant was given free reign to answer this question through their work.
The artists who participated are: Steven Stradley, Namon Bills, Jorge Rojas, Duston Todd, Fidalis Buehler, Tyler Swain, Colby Sanford, Spencer Budd, Jeffrey Hale, and myself. The show will be at Alice Gallery in Salt Lake City until January 12th.
It was a new experience to go on air and talk about an art show. Thank you Lara and Nick at KRCL for inviting me to share a few thoughts on "RadioActive" about the Artist/Dad show that is up at Alice Gallery in Salt Lake City until January 12th. Here's a link to the show:

On February 26, Salt Lake City held the grand opening of its newest library in the Marmalade neighborhood. I feel honored to have been asked to provide a painting for this incredible public space. The painting, titled "Antelope Island and the Oquirrh Mountains," provides a vista of the Great Salt Lake, which can be seen from the neighborhood hills.
Being part of a museum show has been a goal for me for a long time. It was a thrill to go to last night's opening at the Springville Museum of Art and see my work hanging with artists I have admired for sometime. From left to right that's me, Brittany Scott, Jeff Pugh, Joshua Clare, Mark England, and Karen Horne.
I had the privilege of watching the father/son team of Dan and Joshua Toone take my idea for this charity project and bring it to fruition. The chair will be auctioned off on December 10th at the Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah. The money will go directly to Habitat for Humanity. The chair is titled "Shelter," in harmony with the purpose of Habitat for Humanity, and also features a bench made from re-purposed wood and lights powered by a solar panel that is attached on top.
I'm excited that "Firm Foundation" was selected to be part of the 30th Annual Spiritual and Religious Exhibition.
I am thrilled that my painting "Prodigal Son" was one of 93 artworks selected from over 900 to be part of the Church of Jesus Christ's 10th International Art Competition! Even more exciting - the piece was purchased by the Church History Museum.
