April 23, 2020:
I am now very pleased to announce that I am represented internationally by Ronewa Art Projects (Berlin). My latest Gunpowder Series is currently featured on their website at:
Ronewa Art Projects
Ronewa Art Projects has always been at the forefront of on-line art presentation and promotion of a variety of international artists, including many women artists. Gallery owner Roger Washington has been in the business for over ten years, and I am happy to be part of his gallery.
In light of the current pandemic, the upheaval to the art world is significant. Artists are unable to get to their studios, galleries are rapidly switching to on-line sales, and artists, many of whom sustain their practices with part-time or full-time work, have lost their jobs. It is important to support independent galleries with on-line sales at this time as well as artists directly.
Thank you for supporting artists during these difficult times.
The current Conversations exhibition with the Puffin Foundation in NJ has been closed down due to COVID-19, and as yet, no plans can be formulated for that exhibition or future exhibitions. Museums and galleries and nonprofits are on hold but have switched to on-line platforms during this crisis.
Puffin Foundation Cultural Foundation
Two of my works are included in this group exhibition.
Artists present timely works that speak on issues of racism and discrimination that impacts marginalized communities-at-large. They tackle issues of economic discrimination, inequities in the criminal justice system, environmental racism, health care and more. A reception and artists' talk will take place on March 27, at 7 PM.
Saturday, January 25, 2020, 1 to 3 PM
Arlington Arts Center will host a panel discussion and presentation by myself and artists Roxana Geffen and Dawn Whitmore. We were all residents of Arlington Art Center for six years and the time has flown by, but the experience was fulfilling and significant in our development as artists. We will present images of work from then to now to underscore how the development of our work was nurtured and encouraged by AAC.
The Trip Wire Project is on view through December 6th at the Phillips Museum, Franklin & Marshall College, Lancaster, PA.

Very happy to be included in Confluence Select at Otis Street Projects, Washington, DC
CONFLUENCE 2019 SELECT, a group exhibition featuring the work of ten DC area artists whose work was reviewed in East City Art’s 2019 Anthology of critical writing titled CONFLUENCE: Two Rivers One City.
Exhibiting artists include:
Nehemiah Dixon III
Duly Noted Painters ( Ceppetelli and Malone)
CONFLUENCE 2019 SELECT, through the unique merger of visual art and critical writing, offers an expansive view of regional talent allowing audiences the opportunity to examine some of the most engaging ideas trending in contemporary visual art.
East City Art, DC’s visual arts publication of record, published its second edition of CONFLUENCE in March 2019. The 30 essays of the anthology present some of East City Art’s most compelling writing and document the DC region’s most prominent influences on regional visual arts culture.
The title of the anthology alludes to the confluence of the Potomac and Anacostia rivers which flow through the region affectionately known as the “DMV” (DC, Maryland and Virginia).
On view: October 19-November 23
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 19th from 6-9pm
The Critics Of East City Art: Wednesday, November 6th 7-9pm
