Devotional is an art exhibition of my paintings to be held at the Durham Art Guild Gallery at Golden Belt in Durham, NC from February 15 - March 11.
The works in Devotional are about the state of being alone with one’s body, intuition, and heart.
I am raising funds to support the costs associated with mounting this solo show. A significant amount of financing is needed to frame the work for a gallery setting, professionally photograph each piece, and travel to Durham to install the show.
Your contributions will help make this exhibition truly exceptional in its presentation and experience for the viewer. Each work will be hung to highlight my process and better tell its story.
In addition to supporting this exhibition, I am offering exclusive benefits to folks who donate at certain amounts. Not everyone can attend the show in person, so I have put together some big gifts for those who have the extra funds to support my work.
-$25 donation: You will receive a mailed copy (US only) of my 2017 exhibition catalog "Peacemaker". This book measures 9in x 6in and features full spreads and detail images of original art. 60 pages with saddle stitch binding.
- $560 - personal commission measuring 16in x 20in oil on canvas. unframed. To be completed and mailed to you by Fall 2019 (US only; limited to 2).
