I enjoyed the exhibit very much, the installation particularly. The unique approach used to create and share his art is precise, and very thoughtful. I appreciate his work, especially when considering the amount of work and time involved. Great exhibit!

Audrey Brown was thoroughly enjoying to observe and interact with. Her naturalistic style is rendered beautifully. I felt that she was very engaging and enthusiastic.

I enjoyed the reception. His work with the dark atmosphere of the jazz and blues scene were particularly interesting to me. The emphasis on light and shadow that borders on ground confusion is illustrated very well.
