We will exhibit 12 artists from all around the world and show a little of their culture, evolving the embassy’s and some special event is prepared.

A Midsummer’s Night Dream…

Come to water’s edge in a dreamscape grotto to reflect on midsummer’s magic. Serene koi and lively wildlife imbue Meredith Cope’s impressionistic paintings with enchantment. Stroll the romantic grounds of Thea and David Klass’s country estate where flora and fauna mingle with children’s art, treasures from the couple’s travels and Thea’s own paintings. Refresh your palate with the US premier of Riegela, an artisan beer imported from Augsburg, Bavaria and distributed by David Klass himself. Chef Keith Taylor from Twisted Root will quench your hunger for culinary poetry with delectable, decadent nibbles. Savor the pure magic of summer.

Show in Lisbon, Portugal

Posted by on 2013-8-6 in Event | 0 comments


After receiving an invitation to be a featured artist in the Lisbon International Contemporary Exhibition, I look forward to this opportunity on October 5. Each artist in their directory is posted with the flag of their country and so the international aspect is a real focus of the event. I don’t think I’ve ever represented my country before!

The show I’ve been looking forward to in September has chosen my painting, “Emerald Sea” for the illustration for their flyer.  I’m thrilled, needless to say.  I guess this one is going to the show!

New Representation and Shows

Posted by on 2013-2-24 in Event | 0 comments

Hello friends,

A bit of news–I have just recently received representation through a New York company called Creative Concepts.  Their subtitle is “A Unique Gallery of International Artists.”  There are plans for an art show in September in New York.  I’ll let you know more about that as details become available.  Currently, I am upfront and center–very easy to find–on their website:

It is a chance to see some of my latest work and read a bit about my own interpretations and understandings of the images.  They do have a comments section, and I would welcome any of your thoughts there.  Please take a moment to do that if you can!

They also offer a link to my new website which, thanks to the professional design of Kent Pilkington, my nephew, is a brand new presentation of my body of work.  Additionally, the website is now viewable on iPads and iPhones–a much needed improvement.

I am also working with an art patron and visionary supporter here in town to develop a show in the Dayton area probably in May.  More to come on that as well!
