Alright, my masked amigos...THIS FRIDAY is the art opening of my new, solo exhibit, WE ALL WEAR MASKS. I wanted something to correspond with this time of year & THE BEST holiday ever, HALLOWEEN, so I wrote a fun story to base all my new works on:

'When 11-year-old Edward can't find that perfect, once-of-a-kind, Halloween costume, he is spontaneously gifted a mask from his strange, reclusive neighbor, "Old Man" Baker. When Edward puts the mask on & peers through the eyeholes, his sight is altered in a very odd manner. Instead of seeing the everyday "normal" smiles & friendly gestures of random people, he sees their true forms dripping with anxiety, awkwardness, depression, confusion, anger, sadness, fear, etc... Edward wonders why the majority of people cover their true selves, emotions & forms with fake appearances. After the mask begins to reveal people's true character, he understands the desire for some to disguise them. But others he finds more beautiful without the masks which they hide behind...'
In this exhibit, we see what Edward sees as he strips away the masks we all wear every day which hide how we truly look & feel...

The show opens Friday, October 14th from 7-10pm. There will be free beverages, music & other goodies for those who attend. I'll also have a station set up where the guests can create their own, original art which they can put up to be a part of the show & story. 
I'd REALLY love to see you all there & since it's a FREE event, please bring whomever your heart desires! Here is the Facebook events page with all the info as well, so again, please share & invite your buddies: WE ALL WEAR MASKS Art Opening Reception
Looking forward to hugging you all....
