    Jon Frey and I have a new mural completed at 3 Railroad Street in Roachdale, IN for the 2022 installment of the Putnam County Mural Project. We had a terrific time making our mural for two weeks in September and meeting all the other talented muralists. We hope its imagery inspires a reframing of Roachdale's existing structures and landscapes as "fertile ground" for creative reuse and expression for many years to come. If you find yourself in rural Indiana, do check it out!



    I'm honored to be hosted by Harford Community College's Chesapeake Gallery for a solo show happening virtually, everywhere via the WWW. An in-person installment will be scheduled for a future gallery season, but for now do check out some work featured in this edition of Escape from Cultivation at this site from June 5 through September 10, 2021.
