Have a Look!

An Opening in  Charlotte

I'm pleased to announce a new gallery association, with McColl Fine Art, in Charlotte, North Carolina.

McColl has specialized in fine American and European paintings, with a primary focus on select works from the 19th and early 20th Centuries. They are now expanding into what they describe as "classical contemporary."

In celebration, they are launching a new gallery space in Charlotte, at 126 Cottage Street, with a Grand Opening reception this Thursday, March 29th, from 6-8 p.m. The reception is by invitation, but do call the gallery at 704-333-5983 if you'd like to attend.

I'm very pleased to be included among the McColl artists, both the quick and the dead---among them many of my heroes.

One wonders---- when the lights are turned off, the doors locked, and the staff departed, what Inness, Ryder, Hawthorne and their friends will have to say to each other about the young whippersnappers now sharing their space at McColl.

I hope they'll be kind, and remember that Ruysdael, Van Goyen, and Claude, in their turn, probably had some things to say about those raucous 19th- and early 20th-century youngsters, too.

  1. Congratulations my good man. They are fortunate to have you. I've been to the web site and noticed that they posted an Inness rite next to one of your paintings and I must say that it feels right to me. I think when the lights are off and the doors locked, Inness whispers to Ryder, "Check out the maple trees on the new guy, not too shabby".

  2. Sh-h-h-h! I can hear them now. Uh-oh, it ain't pretty....

  3. Congratulations. Right where you should be!
