Artist's statement -
The tragicomic figure at the center
of my paintings, although resembling me, is a universalized
version of myself, an "Everyman."
This distorted figure exists in an uneasy
agreement with his surroundings. These surroundings are frequently
depicted by a grid of squares or numbers. We live in a highly
structured society. We live in a world of numbers. They are
all around us. Without numbers there is no society. Numbers
are used in all parts of society to manage, assess, access,
name, compute, estimate, evaluate, appraise, study, rate and
prorate. The individual is surrounded by numbers.
I try to depict the balance between
tragedy and comedy, between confinement and freedom, between
the individual and society, and between humor and seriousness.

Guidelines - Criteria for Jurying-in new members
FALC has been fortunate this year to welcome many
new members and we can look forward to many others being interested
in joining our club. One of the questions that we get asked
the most from current members and those who are interested in
joining is about our criteria for acceptance. Our process is
clear and simple. Anyone who wants to join needs to bring three
pieces of art to one of our meetings. The members present at
that meeting will vote, and if a 2/3 majority of people approve,
that person will be accepted, pay their dues, and become an
As a juried club, FALC strives to maintain a certain
standard of proficiency since organizations that invite us to
exhibit assume a certain selectivity. One rule of thumb commonly
used when voting in new members is to ask yourself this question
- Would I like to exhibit with this work? Would this new work
add to the reputation of the club? Just as we support each other
by bringing our best work to shows and by providing new, fresh
work for the painting changes at Quinlan, we can use our Artists'
eyes to make decisions about what work will be hanging beside
us at the next show.
Voting "no" during the jurying-in process does
not bar an artist from joining the club. The artist can still
be a member, just not an "exhibiting member". Non-exhibiting
members can attend demos and meetings that provide an environment
for their art to grow. As they continue to develop their skills,
they are welcome to jury in at a later date.
Guidelines - Copyrighted material
The laws regarding copyrighted
material are complex and not uniform from state to state. In order
to avoid liability and the burden of determining whether a particular
image involves copyright infringement, FALC has created the following
guidelines for member artists. FALC assumes that it is the respoinsibility
of the artist to honestly follow these guidelines and assumes
no liability for work that is submitted or displayed not following
these guidelines. It reserves the right to disqualify a painting
if there is reasonable doubt about copyright infringement or plagiarism.
- Work entered for a show must be the
artist's original work in concept and execution.
- It cannot be copied from copyrighted
material or photographs belonging to another person or organizaion
except with the copyright holder's explicit written permission.
- It cannot be the reproduction of a
painting done by another person even if the original artist
is acknowledged on the painting.
- It cannot be the reproduction of a
