Oxford Town

I made the cover of the Oxford Town. It is a really nice article with lots of images. If you want to check it out, scroll down to the bottom of the Oxford Eagle's web page. Unfortunately, you have to download the whole pdf....

You were the O-Town Centerfold, Lou. Hubba hubba!

My fav part of the article was where the writer attributed your use of acrylics to ease of clean up, and then quoted you saying that it was really more about the aesthetic quality of the medium. Well which is it? Ease of clean up, or visual impact?1?!

congrats!

Hello Lou! I live in the Dell condos next to the Museum and I have spent a lot of time in your exhibit. It is absolutely stunning! Your paintings have immediate visual impact, but also leave a memorable impression that beckons your return, and I have returned several times. I love the way the bold paintings jump out from the newly painted, virgin-white gallery walls. And the Museum Preparator, Robert Pekala, has done a perfectionists job in hanging and visually-balancing the paintings on the exhibit hall walls. The entire exhibit is very pleasing and satisfying to the eye, it captivates the viewer, and compels their return. I highly complimented the Museum Director, William Andrews, and suggested that he place several benches in the exhibit so viewers can sit and contemplate your art. If forced under much duress, I would have to say that "Mint Julep" is my favorite piece, it speaks to me on so many different levels, and the color tones are so sublime. Congratulations on your show! BRAVO MAESTRO!! BRAVO!!!
