RoCo 6x6I have participated in Rochester Contemporary’s 6×6 exhibition each year since it started in 2008. This year, I actually started early and I am quite pleased with my submissions.

Update, review, etc.

There has been a flurry of activity both in the studio and elsewhere which has caused me to be a bit lax in my updating this blog and my website. Below is a short review of the show at Joy Gallery by Alan Singer, artist, professor, and art writer extraordinaire:

Recent graduates take over the Joy Gallery on Rochester’s west side for a two person essay on the state of abstract art in a show titled “Hard Work”.  Here lyrical layers of color in deeper tones by Bradley Butler rub shoulders with hard edge grids of color by Rick Minard.  Butler has a knack for improvisation and the experiments can be dark, poetic and oceanic.  Minard on the other hand is more analytical, precise and buoyant in his color choices.

The show actually stayed up at the gallery  for almost a month longer than expected, so, if you have yet to see it, make a point to stop by on Saturday from 12 noon – 4 pm! Photos will be uploaded from the opening soon…
