Opening night tonight, November 6, and for the next three days, the Thomas Riley Galleries will exhibit five of my sculptures, 4 in cast glass and 1 in wood – Enigma, Midnight Moves, Red Shift, Ode to Morph, and Morph VI in black cherry wood. This is the 9th consecutive year my work has been represented at SOFA and the second time my two styles of sculpture will be exhibited in the same year.Learn more →
