Neddy at Cornish

Lead Pencil Studio Non-sign II

Tomorrow is the opening for the Neddy at Cornish exhibition– a meaty reception, from 5-9pm! If you are in or around Seattle, come on down. The big prizes were awarded to Stacey Rozich and Eirik Johnson, but all eight finalists (listed below) will have work in the show. I’ll have four pieces– two new.

Work by Ned Behnke, the namesake of the award, will also be shown. From the Cornish site: “Additionally celebrating the arrival of the Neddy at Cornish, we are featuring a concurrent exhibition of paintings by the award’s namesake, Ned Behnke. Curated by Peggy Weiss, Reflections brings together a selection of paintings from multiple bodies of work, over the course of Behnke’s life”
