APRIL 2015 NEWS
George's painting "Brain Games"
has just been juried into a traveling museum exhibition titled

"Masterworks From The International Guild Of Realism."

Here is George's statement that will be displayed along with the painting:

“Brain Games” started out as a “Vanitas” painting, but soon evolved into a more whimsical piece. The idea was to represent how as children we are able to absorb so much information. The blocks indicate the beginning of the learning process, while the cha...lkboard & book show how the process continues to evolve. The skull was a little trickier because I wanted it to represent a container of things we learn, like a soup bowl. Ironically, as I was working on this painting, I was hearing from a couple of my students how they were going through a very difficult time with their parents who were suffering with Alzheimer’s. One of the things that kept coming up in their discussions was how in the beginning stages, the patients couldn’t remember events that had just happened, but instead, sometimes they would revert back to memories of when they were younger. After hearing these stories, the skull in the painting takes on a much different metaphor--now it serves more as a vessel for things we learn and our innocent memories".

This is the tour schedule so far:
May 19-July 26, 2015 - The R.W.Norton Gallery, Shreveport, LA.
Sept 1-Oct 31, 2015 - Appleton Museum of Art, Ocala, FL.
Feb 6-June 11, 2016 - Albany Museum of Art, Albany, GA.
