Thank you for being a part of this experiment where I will send a painting with a short story/thought behind it every few weeks.
I have longed for a way shine a light on what happens after the presentation or what doesn’t get seen. Not a “blog” or even, perhaps, a fully-formed thought. But a handkerchief of a thought, something i might leave behind while riding to where ever– a postcard from the interior– ah that’s what I’ll call it…an image and some words, that’s all.
The View From Here, 60 x 48 in. Oil on Linen 2019
I’m thrilled to announce my upcoming exhibition at the Untitled Art Fair in San Francisco with Zevitas Marcus. It’s funny how life works– I’ve shown my work all over the country but this is the first show in my hometown of the Bay Area. I’m super excited to see family and old friends and wrote an instagram post about all that here.

Paintings from the Interior, curated by Andi Campognone, is a survey exhibition of painting in and about the inland region of southern California. With a specific geographic boundary east of Kellogg Hill in Los Angeles county to the low and high deserts of San Bernardino and Riverside counties, this exhibit focuses on both the literal landscape and the conceptual imagery of place.
DISCLOSURE: CONFESSIONS FOR MODERN TIMES
Jan 5 – Feb 2, 2019
Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019,
Artists: Kim Abeles, Jorin Bossen, Kimberly Brooks, Joe Davidson, Dani Dodge, Donald Fodness, Kathryn Hart, Debby and Larry Kline, Conchi Sanford, Ed “Celso” Tahaney and Steven Wolkoff, Curators: Dani Dodge and Alanna Marcelletti
Durden and Ray will celebrate the start of 2019 with an exhibition that allows people to cleanse their souls through the art of disclosure. January is about cleansing the past and making new starts. But since the early 1990s, independent polls have shown the rapid growth of those without a religious affiliation. So where do people go to confess, if not to a higher power? Maybe an art gallery? Dani Dodge and Alanna Marcelletti decided to play devil’s advocates and create a space where the participants can disclose transgressions and progress unfettered into 2019 through art.
