Happy to be included in this exhibition at Prøve Gallery in Duluth devoted to art that addresses the idea of PLAY. The show opens tomorrow night (Friday, September 14) with storytelling and local beers by Lake Superior Brewing. I won’t be able to make the party but I did enjoy checking out the space when I delivered my pictures last week.

Prøve Collective Gallery – Duluth, MN

My pictures address the idea of play in various ways. Several express the freedom, wonder and lust for life that are the soul of childhood.

Running with Bubbles

Rainmaker / Sweet

Others take a playful approach to familiar objects of play including iconic games and toys.

Chinese Checkers / Slinky / Beach Ball

The final image captures the hyper-playground of the carnival midway, super-saturated and a bit surreal.


Playground at Prøve Gallery, Duluth, MN September 14 – September 30. Opening reception Friday, September 14 from 7 – 11pm.

Open Water Part 2

My second piece in the Open Water exhibition is pure summer in the city. It was taken at a public pool in Minneapolis on a scorching hot day. I always think of it as a beach ball melting into the water. It was that hot.

Lyric Center for the Arts is located in an old Opera House in downtown Virginia, MN. Open Water is a juried show celebrating the start of water recreation season in the Land of 10,000 Lakes (aka SUMMER). Opening Reception Thursday, May 3.
