Vermont Governor's Office Show

My work will be featured in the Vermont Governor's Office (lobby) April 2 to June 28. I recently finished the piece below, Fractured Flag, and will display it for the first time in this show, titled, Hard Lines, Soft Colors

I'm not sure the title is perfect for all the pieces in the show, but I couldn't get it out of my head as I was working on this one. I love the contrast between the thin, clear, boundaries, and the amorphous, organically transforming colors.

The opening reception will be Wednesday, April 17, from 3 to 5. The governor's office is on the fifth floor of the Pavilion Building on Governor Davis Avenue (which is just off State Street) in Montpelier. A photo ID is required to get a visitor's pass to the office. Unfortunately, but understandably, photographs aren't permitted in the lobby so I can't post any images from the show.
