August 5 – 27, 2016 – Lichtenstein Center for the Arts, Pittsfield, Mass. “JAZZ Visions” – This is a duo show I am doing with Lee Everett, jazz photographer extraordinaire.

Most of my paintings are watercolor on canvas…inspired over many years by the Pittsfield CityJazz Festivals, Newport and Montreal Jazz Festivals, New Orleans and NYC jazz scene, plus some portraits of performers. Additionally, there will be a framed fine art reproduction of my original watercolor “The Master’s Hands” signed by Dave Brubeck himself (at the 2009 PCJF)….proceeds from the sale of this piece will benefit Berkshires Jazz. There were only 3 signed, and this is the last one. The opening reception is set for Friday, August 5, 5-8 pm during the August Pittsfield Arts Walk.
