Four of my pieces, “Pinnacle”, “Shattered”, “River of Light” and “Ray of Hope” (above), were accepted into the Ventura County Arts Council’s Abstracts Show, which is currently running through March 1st at the Ventura County Government Center. I was told it was a tough competition, which appears very true based on my other competitors’ fine work. The jurors had their work cut out for them! I’m very honored to have my art juried into this show, not only because of it’s wonderful applicants, but also because it is a new, local venue for me.
The location for the Abstracts Show is fantastic. The show is held in the light, airy Atrium Gallery, which is in the Hall of Administration at the Ventura County Government Center. It is open during normal business hours, Monday through Friday 8am-5pm and closed weekends and holidays.

It’s wonderful having a local show as I will be able to attend the upcoming artist’s reception and meet with the other attendees and artists. The Abstracts Show reception will be held Friday, January 29th from 5:30pm to 7pm.
My selected pieces cover a diverse group of crystals; not one of them is from the same compound. Shattered and Pinnacle are pieces that resulted from my experiments in mixing an assortment of chemicals. You can find out about the somewhat risky experiment that resulted in Shattered in my blog post, Don’t Blow Up the House for Micro-Crystal Art.
I love the thrill of the colors, patterns and unique surprises that are hidden in the hidden world of crystals. One particular inspiration has been River of Light, with its color-blocking and converging lines, which draw the eye to a resulting focal point. It is a crowd favorite, and has been selected for many shows and received several awards.
So much care is put into creating these art pieces that it gives a sense of accomplishment when I deliver or package one for shipment. If you are interested in a piece or have any questions, feel free ask me via my Contact Page.
