Creativity is contagious! Mike and his wife Linda are busy preparing for an exhibit of his paintings and her original beaded jewelry at a very small venue in Kent next month.
Linda tells me Mike is planning on showing around 20 paintings, mostly still lifes, ships, and landscapes - though he may take an original SF piece and some sketchbooks for interested parties - to display at the Bay Art Gallery in Kent. She'll have a whole slew of new jewelry designs showing as well. The exhibit runs from Monday, September 25th through Sunday, October 1st. The following weekend, they'll be at the Fanderson Sector 25 Convention, of course.
On Monday the 25th, the gallery will be open from 2 to 4pm and the rest of the week from 10am to 4pm. Mike and Linda will both be there during opening hours all week long.
The Bay Art Gallery is located at 47a William Street, Herne Bay, in Kent.

This is a great opportunity to see some of Mike's non-sci-fi work and spend some time talking with him and Linda. Almost all of the pieces shown will be for sale, and he will be taking commissions as well. If you're near Kent, please stop by! And if you can get a photo or two, how about emailing them to me so I can post them here?
