This summer I will be an artist in residence at Yaddo. Yaddo’s mission is to further the creative process by providing an opportunity for artists to work without interruption in a supportive environment. Chosen on a competitive basis by panels of widely recognized artists, guests work in both traditional and nontraditional media. For more visit: yaddo.org.


Work from Farther Land will be included in Modern Heroics, 75 Years of African-American Expressionism at the Newark Museum, June 18th, 2016. For more visit: newarkmuseum.org.
