Heartfelt thanks to everyone who made it out to Gallery Night 2017 this month, and especially those who came by to visit me and my portraits. They’ll remain up at 100state until September.
I spent most of my time talking with people, meeting up with friends, checking out all the amazing art and flirting with the band. That means I got very few pictures of the event myself, but was actually engaged in experiencing it.
If you want to see more pictures of the event there are a few on Carlos’s Instagram and also a few videos of art in the space during gallery night. Official event photos available soon.
Thanks again to 100arts for allowing me to be part of this years Gallery Night, and again to everyone who came by to say hello and see my art!
If you’re looking for a great co-working space in Madison you can join 100state and request the teal meeting room where my portraits are hanging. I hope you enjoy hanging out with them as much as I did while making them.
Please, feel free to send me pics of you taking selfies with my art in the background. 😀 Who knows, perhaps I’ll be inspired to make a little portrait from your picture, and we’ll have a little portrait-ception going on. 😀
Here are some examples:
Come and see my art!

The 100state arts organizer liked my work at the Print & Resist show and invited me to share my series of portraits at the 100State ‘Welcome to the Neighborhood‘ show:
I’m showing 30 of my portraits inspired by sktchy.com photos.
My work will remain up in the gallery until September 1st.
There will be a reception with refreshments and live music at 100state on Gallery night.
Here are the event details
Hope to see you swing by,
