My painting, “All That Glitters”, 2014, acrylic and mica flakes on canvas, 84” x 60”, is included in “Exhibition 280” at the Huntington Museum of Art, in Huntington, West Virginia.
“More than 430 submissions were received from 159 artists from throughout the region. From those submissions, 69 works were selected for inclusion by this year’s juror.”

From the Museum’s website:
Opening reception for this event takes place on Saturday, October 10, 2015, from 5 to 7 p.m. Admission is free.
Throughout the history of the Huntington Museum of Art, one of its most important roles has been providing a venue for regional artists. Exhibition 280 is a regional, juried exhibition, presented by the Huntington Museum of Art, in altered versions, since 1953 – one year after the founding of the institution. Originally, the radius for eligibility was small, reaching out to artists living in an 80-mile radius of Huntington. Later, the boundaries were widened to 180 miles, then, 280. Now, all artists who are 18 years of age or older who reside in West Virginia and her contiguous neighbor states (Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Maryland) may participate.
