SOMArts Cultural Center presents Overturn the Artifice, opening in San Francisco on Friday, March 8th with a reception and performance from 6 – 9 PM. SOMArts Cultural Center is located at 934 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103.

Three of my new large-scale charcoal drawings will be included in this group exhibition, curated by one of SOMArts’ 2012–13 Commons Curatorial Residency recipients, Jack Leamy. My Growth series is conceptual engagement of drawing as a personal and political act: “This cadre of artists selected by Jack Leamy utilizes masterful technical ability in tandem with unrivaled emotional sincerity in their relationship to the symbolic and their execution of aesthetically powerful figurative and abstract paintings and installations.” – Justin Hoover, SOMArts Curator and Gallery Director. The exhibition will be on view from March 8–29, 2013.

My Montréal gallery, Beaux-arts des Amériques, will be participating in 3 upcoming International Art Fairs: SCOPE with AGAC (Association des galeries d’art contemporain), the Affordable Art Fair and PAPIER13.

I will be at SCOPE during Armory Week (March 6 – 10) and my new work will be featured at AAF at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City from April 3 – 7 and at PAPIER13 at the Quartier des spectacles in Montreal from April 25 – 28.

Please save-the-date for my solo exhibition opening in Montréal, at Beaux-arts des Amériques, on May 16th. This exhibition presents my most recent collection of large-scale charcoal drawings. More information to follow. Beaux-arts des Amériques is located at 3944, rue St-Denis, Montréal, Québec H2W 2M2.
