I recently attended the Preview Party for the 2012 Art Melt at the Shaw Center for the Arts in Baton Rouge, LA. My painting Survival of the Fittest was one of the works selected for the show by jurors Franklin Sirmans (Chief Curator, Los Angeles County Museum of Art); Ron Platt (Curator, Birmingham Museum of Art); and Thomas Neff (Artist and Professor of Art, LSU). If you missed the Preview Party and the opening reception, no worries as the exhibit will be up through August 3rd.
