The first shows that I helped curate were for the an artist, and dear friend, named Eric Adrian Lee for Rule Gallery in Denver, CO. It helped me to see where one of my deepest passions lie, within putting an art show together apart from making the art itself.
This interest continued to develop into a love over the following years, while I lived in France. Between 2004 and 2007, I was able to take part in aiding others in curating shows, or by curating by myself altogether, in Paris (La Pave D'Orsay) and Glasgow, Scotland (The Glasgow Art School).
Upon my return from living abroad, I was given the opportunity to be head curator, and co-leader, of a small non-profit gallery in Denver, CO, called 11th Ave. Gallery. In the course of the gallery's two years, our space gained much notoriety among Denver's local art scene. That two years was what cemented my passion for curating, the act of giving an artist a chance to show their art, even if it were the first time, and play an active role in how that would be visually presented. We had 22 exhibits, which included three group shows and the remainder where solo shows.
In 2010, I moved to Portland, OR, got married to a wonderful women (in 2011), and earned a B.A. in Art History (2010-2014). After graduating, my wife and I moved to Chicago, IL, where we currently reside with our son Henry Thomas.
Despite my current break from curating -- I am a stay-at-home dad -- I do plan to continue my pursuit of hanging and exhibiting the artwork of different artists. I will continue to update this site as my creative journey develops further, so stay tuned.
Below are some photos of exhibits I have curated:
