On December 2nd at Northern Kentucky University there will be an art opening for an exhibition featuring myself, several graphic designers and a ceramicist. Fifty feet of wall space in the main gallery at Northern Kentucky University will be set aside for my paintings. It is open to the public, all ages, family friendly, free, and with free food! The gallery is a beautiful, well-maintained space–one of the nicest and largest in the area. I am extremely excited to have so much of my hard work on display in such a great setting.

This is my senior thesis show, as I will finally be receiving a bachelor of fine arts with an emphasis in painting in December, after some long breaks over the years to tour and record music albums. The show will include some paintings from the Alchemy album art that I had on the walls for the music video premiere last month, as well as newer paintings that have never been exhibited.

I have truly put my heart and soul and whole body into painting over the last few years. I hope that you will consider coming out to see the culmination of hundreds of long days and late nights splattering, pouring, tightly rendering, wiping away, thinking, starting over, wanting to give up, and finally feeling satisfied at the completion of each new work.

The exhibition opens December 2nd with a reception from 5 – 7 p.m. The exhibition continues until December 10, 2010. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information contact me joehedges at joehedges.com or the gallery director David J. Knight at Knight at nku.edu or 859-572-5148. Parking is available in the Welcome Center Garage.
