SOFA

sofa-logo

Since 2006, I have been honored to have my work represented at three city venues of this exquisite, exciting, humbling, encouraging and heady international expo of world class artists – Chicago, New York and Santa Fe.  Each year the work has been different, and the event over-the-top special.

sofa-logoSo I’d like to share some of each event with you – starting with this year and travelling back to the beginning.

  • From 2011 when my glass sculptures were first represented by Riley Galleries, Cleveland.
  • In 2011 when my glass sculptures made their début and  I had the incredible distinction of being represented by two galleries in two medium — in glass by Riley Galleries and in wood by del Mano Gallery, Los Angeles. I was told it might have been a first in SOFA history.
  • From 2006 through 2010 when my wood art was featured by del Mano Gallery.  And by Zane Bennett Contemporary Art, Santa Fe, also at SOFA Chicago in 2006.
