"Against the Tide"

An Online Exhibition and Printed Catalog

The Internet has been a huge boon to artists with an entrepreneurial bent. I'm not talking websites, which any serious artist should have by now, but of blogs and other e-projects that allow us to write, curate, exhibit and meet in an electronic community that transcends physical space.

I'm pleased to announce that my painting, Silk Road 117, is included in Against the Tide, an online exhibition curated by Sharon Butler on her Two Coats of Paint blog. Writes Butler: "This online exhibition presents paintings by sixteen contemporary artists in the Two Coats of Paint community who have been drawn, perhaps against the tide, to the power and metaphor of water."

The artists include Joel Adas, Sean Anderson, Mark Barry, Barbara Brady, Jenny Zoe Casey, Emilia Dubicki, Mary Addison Hackett, Sara Klar, Rachelle Krieger, Magnolia Laurie, Mott McCampbell, Claire McConaughy, Wendy Small, Cary Smith, Robert Yoder, Elizabeth Zans, and myself.
