Going Back to Manhattan . . . December 2015

This December I am once again exhibiting in New York City. I will install four sculptures in the 20th Annual Friends of the Pleiades Invitational exhibition at the Pleiades Gallery located in Chelsea at 530 West 25th Street, NY NY 10001.

This Pleiades show opens on December 29 and runs through January 23, 2016. The Exhibition Reception and Opening Party is on Saturday, January 9, 2016 from 3 to 6 pm. I would love to see you there.

The series of four works I am taking to New York can be seen below. In addition, this posting contains images of about a dozen new oil paintings and another dozen or so sculptures so far this year.

As well as exhibiting in New York through January 2016, I am pleased to announce that I joined the Crooked Tree Arts Center (CTAC) in Petoskey Michigan (near our summer place). CTAC offers outstanding programs, classes and exhibitions for the arts.

In addition, I am donating a sculpture to the center that will be auctioned off next summer in CTAC’s D’Art for Art benefit which is the principal fund raising event for the center’s programs and operations.

More on future events at Exhibitions but for now . . .

The Sculptures for the Pleiades Show 

Of the four works going to NYC this December my muse says, “I guess you’re in your ‘fish phase’ now.”  I admit it is so. After all, it was a fish sculpture that got me to New York in the first place!

These four works are more than just fish representations. As a series, they constitute a study of the evolution of form and design that begins with three elemental strokes (Three Piece Fish) and finishes with a flashy specimen (Egyptian Tigerfish) that, despite its ornamentation, retains a notable hint of this elemental form amidst the glamour.

Thanks for visiting my website and for your interest.

Best, Tom
