I'm still in the afterglow from the reception on Saturday night. Even torrential downpours and the pride parade blocking 23rd couldn't dampen the spirits. It was awesome to have so many people come out to see the work and support us! There were old friends, new friends, family, colleagues, some surprise out-of-towners and just random art lovers.
So, with that, here are some pics from the opening. My next post will have my work from the show.
Set-up on Saturday morning
Lots of people enjoying the show and awesome sangria.

Last night's show opening was just awesome! We had an incredible turnout, the space looked fantastic, the work was strong and the support from everyone was overwhelming. Thanks to everyone that was able to make it last night and extra special thanks to: Oliver Werner for giving us the opportunity, Marcus Fletcher for being a great partner in our artistic endeavors and my amazing wife Erin, who has been unbelievably supportive and patient as I've been preparing my work for the last several months.
I'm still in NYC right now, but will upload more photos of the show (as well as finally showing the work) next week, so check back!

Thanks to everyone that was able to make it out to our opening last night. We hope you enjoyed the work and I know Marcus and I enjoyed having you there!
For the many friends and family that were unable to attend the opening and/or haven't seen the collage pieces I exhibited, here they are. If you will be in the New York area during the month of June, please stop by Grounded and have a look in person. Enjoy!

This month Brutopia will be featuring a series of new works by Industrial Designer and Artist Mike Roller. His collection entitled Schematic, is a series of paintings done with spray paint on masonite. I really like Mike's use of color, texture and negative space, all of which come together in dynamic pieces that work well individually, yet feed off of one another as sets. I would highly encourage you to go to his opening reception this Friday, 6/6/08 from 8-10pm and see his work in person!
I was interviewed recently by Megan Dorn at PartnerUp and they wanted to know my take on product development. Might not be the most interesting thing for many people, but if you want to read it, you can check it out here.
