Shipped out my "Redneck Madonna" drawing this morning to Raleigh, NC for the "SCOPE: The Southern Landscape" exhibition at the Visual Art Exchange. Also taking part in the show is a good friend of mine, Katelyn Chapman, from Clemson University that's currently working on her M.F.A at the University of Georgia. Her work in the show is below and you can see more on her website here. Greg Shelnutt, Clemson's Art Department Chair, was kind enough to do a write up on the CU Arts blog about our participation in the exhibition, which you can read here.

Excited to be included in "The Gun Show" this month at Drawl Southern Contemporary Art in Little Rock, Arkansas. The premise of the show is to discuss the role of guns in southern culture and it will be interesting to see the variety of perspectives that will be on display. Later this month I'll be hauling a trailer out with my giant deer piece ("After the Hunt") and four smaller Mylar drawings to drop off for the show and attend the opening reception/event. Really looking forward to this one!
Shipping out the original drawing in the "Contested Grounds" series to Memphis for "Art of the South" at the University of Memphis. This crate has really got some miles in over the past year and hopefully still has many more to go!
My "Pikeville, Kentucky" drawing (pictured below) won a Technical Drawing Award in "The New South" exhibition at Kai Lin Art in Atlanta last week. The show will be up through the end of May, so if you happen to be in the area stop by. There is a very diverse set of artists included in the exhibition and a lot of beautiful works on paper.
One of my favorite small drawings will be on display at MINT Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia from Februrary 20th through March 20th for thier 3rd Annual National Juried Exhibition, "Where We Are Going, Where We Have Been." If you happen to be in the area be sure to drop by and check it out. The work I saw while delivering the piece last weekend was really stunning and looks like it will be a great show!
