In nature's most brutal moments I find great beauty. Where the violence of nature co-mingles with exquisite subtlety I find great excitement. I suppose I simply prefer my beauty with teeth in it.

This exhibit will highlight paintings from a selection of the PAPA membership and will include these large field paintings. The Salmagundi Club is close to my heart; I was a scholarship member as a young fellow and am currently a member. The oldest continually running Art Cub in U.S. History, the club hosts a wonderful art collection, exhibit spaces, historic library, pub & bar.
I am thrilled to go back to the East coast and be part of this.

This is my fourth time back teaching on the Cape. Late September is the ideal time to work: tourists are gone and it is easy to get around. It's not hard to see how Edward Hopper was attracted to The Cape's austere beauty.
