The Midwest Museum of American Art has placed into its collection a piece of my art entitled, Origins of Medical Practice, a mixed media assemblage of found objects. It was donated to the museum by Dr. Steven Conant of Indianapolis, Indiana, a well known collector of modern and contemporary fine art. Dr. Conant is active in several Indiana museums, including serving on acquisitions committees of the Indianapolis Museum of Art and the Midwest Museum of American Art in Elkhart, Indiana. A sincere thank you to Dr. Conant for his appreciation of my art and his thoughtful consideration in donating my work to the museum.
Over the past dozen years my work has been collected into private collections in many cities in the United States and across the world, which is wonderful. Having my art placed in the Midwest Museum of American Art’s collection is a special privilege that I deeply appreciate and respect. And, it gives to me a positive spark of creativity that will carry my art forward.
For 2019, I have been chosen as the “Gold” winner for Best Local Visual Artist for the Indianapolis Star’s “Best Things Indianapolis.” This award coming on the heels of having my work being accepted into the Midwest Museum of Art’s collection is incredibly gratifying. Thank you to everyone that voted for me!
