Gary received the People's Choice Award from members of the committee. Girlilla and Tiney are displayed at the Fifth Third Bank in downtown Decatur, Indiana as part of the Decatur Sculpture Tour 2014. This piece and Hound Dog are on display through May.

We are thrilled to be exhibiting at Bear's Mill again! Gary's first solo show was there in 2006, so the Mill has a special place in our hearts. We are especially happy to be paired up with Dan Knepper! Besides being a first-rate artist, Dan has also been instrumental in encouraging Gary to pursue his art.
Below is the information about the show. From the New Knoxville/New Bremen area, the best route is Rt. 274 west to Rt. 127 south, then Rt. 36 east (about 5 miles), turn right onto Arcanum-Bear's Mill Rd. The Mill is less than a half mile from there.
We would love to see you at the reception on Friday, October 31 from 6–9pm. The show runs through November 23.
You owe it to yourself to visit this great place. Gary will be exhibiting at Bear's Mill with Dan Knepper. Dates for the show are October 31 to November 23. Even if you can't get there during that time, put it on your list of things to do. They have wonderful special events throughout the year but anytime feels special when you at the Mill.
On Thursday, September 4th Piqua Arts Council will host their Gala Awards Reception for the 22nd Annual Piqua Fine Art Show. Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased at Readmore's Hallmark. The event will run from 6pm to 9pm with live music featuring an acoustic guitar/dulcimer duo.
Gary has two pieces in this show. They aren't his usual subjects; an eye and a spine! There's always excellent art in this show so it's absolutely worth the trip. The lovely Gala is $25. Exhibit hours open to the public are M–F 10:30am–5pm, Sat 10:30am–4pm September 5 through 26, at no cost.
Update: Gary received First Place in 3D for "Spine Tingling" and Honorable Mention for "Eye'll Be Seeing You". It was a wonderful event that we enjoyed very much. There are 180 pieces of excellent artwork–plan to see it!
Tonnie and I went to see the Gorillas in Lancaster, Ohio at The Decorative Arts Center of Ohio. Fantastic show. I felt honored to have been invited to show some of my sculptures with the other artists in the exhibit.
Be sure to stop by The B.O.B. and visit the gorilla family in The Monkey Bar downstairs! For more info visit ArtPrize.org.
The gorilla family is set up in the B.O.B. in the Monkey Bar (a restaurant that serves food in small monkey bowls) next to the Hostess. Now we need as many people to see them and vote yes as we can get.
