NBA Art Show at The Rendezvous (+ More) !

I'm pleased to have my first NBA Art Show, which will be opening at The Rendezvous in Turners Falls, MA.  I have been holed up working on finishing many half started paintings, including this D Rose in Oil.                                                                  

In local writing news, I have purchased Emily Toder's first book of poems, "SCIENCE" and I am very excited to read it!  Here is a poem of hers (taken from the online journal Sixth Finch).  You can order the book here.  

Another exciting book, Dan Chelotti's debut collection "x," is forthcoming from McSweeney's in April.  Advanced copies will be available at AWP in February (Boston).  The cover is being designed by the great artist Ian Huebert.  Chelotti is shown here (left) with Guy Pettit (the poet, dreamer, & creator of Flying Object).  Here are two little excerpts from "x" that I found on Amazon's page:
                                                    The rain says, Listen to Debussy,
go ahead, Debussy will fix you.

—From “Migraine Cure”

The secret to including everything
is to intricately divide your mind
and then, all of a sudden,
undivide it.

—From “Still Life on a Scrolling Background”
