Memphis and Nashville Exhibitions

Price is Right  opens at David Lusk Gallery

I am pleased to announce the debut of my art in Memphis and Nashville, Tennessee. David Lusk Gallery is presenting my intimately-scaled typewritten pieces in the summer exhibition The Price is Right. This group exhibition is a summer favorite at the gallery. All pieces are priced less than $1,000. Two versions of the exhibition are simultaneously on display in Memphis and Nashville. I hope you will join me for the openings or visit the galleries while my work is on display.
