Join us for an opening reception and event for Excavation: a group exhibition.


Sometime in the late nineties the artist and curator, Late Bill Radawec, invited me to participate in a group show at Rio Hondo College. I had finished a group of Ball Paintings some years earlier, and asked him if I could place a ball in one of the gallery walls with the intent to bury it at the end of the show. Subversively, I had turned the entire gallery wall and everything on it into my painting. When Robert Miller invited me to have a show this year, I thought excavating the buried ball would be appropriate. I wanted to explore beyond my own excavation and have invited others to address the subject. Included in the exhibit are Melissa Huddleston, Benjamin Lord, Nicole Seisler, HK Zamani and others.
