Through May 31st, I'll have work in the three-person show Flood Redux at Strathmore Hall in Rockville, Maryland.  Works in the show depict a water-infused vision of a world changed and challenged by human excess.  Along with my own work — allegorical figures and birds in waterscapes — the show also features work by painters David Molesky and Arlette Jassel.
