Ash Bar Top at the new Shea Theater

I designed and worked on the remodel of the Shea Theater in Turners Falls. I did lighting, art, Bar, and tables, and a woven drop ceiling. This blog covers  the bartop construction and tables that went with it. These are mostly taken in my Buckland shop. The project took place late 2015 through early 2016.

Acadia Once Again

My most recent series of collages are a continuation of one of my longest running series. The Acadia inspired pieces are the result of more than 10 years of visiting the park. In this corner of our country Acadia National Park is really it, as far as I am concerned. Fall, winter, summer, it has much to offer and revisit.

Not all imagery is from Acadia, Oregonian fields, Buckland Pumpkins, Ashfield leaf

Seaweed and Lichen featured here

Feathers, roots, butterfly wings, a leather vest, trees and a stone staircase 1000 ft high.
