Art & Stories

I’m excited to announce I’ll have drawings and a painting in the upcoming exhibition Art & Stories at the Sasse Museum of Art in Pomona, CA (Progress Building, Basement Level
300 South Thomas Street, Pomona, CA 91766). The opening reception is on March 12th and is part of the 2nd Saturday Artwalk. I hope to see you there!

another recent drawing. I’m working on a large drawing this week, not sure if I will complete it within the week or not but it’s fun to have so much more surface to work on. I’ll be posting updates in my Instagram stories: https://www.instagram.com/john.otter.art/

I’m also looking forward to hosting a Sunday afternoon soiree later in August for friends and collectors. I have so many paintings, prints and drawings that are currently in storage – I’d rather have them get out into the world. I’m picturing a small gathering with mimosas, fresh produce from the farmer’s market, conversation, maybe some music and a lot of art. If you’re interested in attending please email me.

new drawing & deadline

I really mean to post more here, so today I’ll add a recently completed drawing: ink and colored pencil on mat board, approximately 5×6″

Also I’m working on a large painting for an upcoming exhibition whose deadline in now only a few days away. Hoping I can work on it for another 10 -20 hours this weekend. It’s gotten to the point where I’m working on it in 15-20 minute intervals any time that I can. I’ll post more about that when it’s complete.
