Suburban Home Records 15th Birthday Weekend Art Show

I am yet again honored to be a part of the celebration for Suburban Home Record's Anniversary Weekend in Denver, CO. I will be hanging my renegade artwork in the the Phoenix Gallery at Three Kings Tavern Friday, September 10 and Saturday, September 11. I've got some new work that I'm excited to bring to town. I hope to see many old and new faces there.

Below is the press release via the Fasano brothers who are in charge of the art events that will take place over the course of the weekend at the Phoenix Gallery...
