ECU-1XXX-1FREE ARTIST’S PRESENTATION, Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016 at 5:00 PM

In early March, I will be in Greenville NC as the Awards Judge for an ECU exhibition. As part of this event, I have been asked to make a presentation about my art as well. My “talk” will take place in the Speight Auditorium of the School of Art and Design at East Carolina University, in Greenville, North Carolina.

This will be my first time talking about my work in North Carolina since I made a presentation at Meredith College … way back in 2002. Quite a lot has changed in my art making since then! Hope to see some of you there.
