'Big Land, Big Sky' is a Group Landscape Show featuring artwork by eleven Burkholder Project Artists. You will see paintings, as well as photography on both canvas and paper.

As a landscape painter who has focused on mountains, I decided to paint some other things - including people, a building, barns, and animals. Hence, my show title "Et Cetera" meaning "and others".

'Living dangerously as a Robot' can take many forms. With the pieces in this show, there was a possibility of a 'rocket' exploding, (imaginative, of course), a laser-blasting robot tank and then finally, a forest fire. Note that the trees were made with a plasma cutter. Temperature of the arc is 45,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Living dangerously definitely goes for the artist as well.

'Places' is a series of realistic or imaginative acrylic paintings that remind viewers of places or stories they may have experienced in their lives.

My work has best been described as "thought-scapes full of kinetic energy that seem to assemble themselves as you look at them." My work is meant to be energetic, joyful and expressive while also communicating a promise of a deeper truth and feeling.
