The Edge of Night

That's the title of a show at ArtsWest in Seattle that opens next Tuesday, October 11.
I'll have 7 pieces hanging along with three other artists
The opening reception will be on Thursday, October 13 from 6 to 7:30pm
(although I don't know at this point if I'll be able to make it).

Here's what the kind Gallery Director (Mark Daughhetee) wrote in the press release:
"Portland artist DAVID CARMACK LEWIS’s oil paintings on canvas interpret the limited spectrums of nighttime light sources, both natural and manmade, and are often populated by what is not there: an empty chair near a small fire, an elegantly lit theatre without an audience. His theatre paintings suggest the striking black and white photographs by Hiroshi Sugimoto of empty movie theaters, but with the subtle hues of night. Lewis has participated in juried shows throughout the region, as well as in New Mexico, Arizona and South Africa."
(I'd not heard of Hiroshi Sugimoto before - here's a sample - very cool)

Darn! So near and unable to get to the big city! Best of luck with your show though, David. The paintings look fabulous!
