Opening August 7 through August 28, CEO CHEER LEADERS is a show that gave me a chance to look into the faces of friends and strangers and try to capture a personality after the color and details are stripped away. Obsessed with more painterly portraits and shows dedicated to blues artists, iconic snack cake girls and a series of oils that merges Santa with Christ, these images are reduced to black and white dots. With words could they inspire more greeting cards? Intermingled with cheer, could a collection of faces be interesting enough to fill a wall? Like a family photo album mixed with a high school pep rally, are corporations ready for this type of portrait art installation? I'm not sure. But it was fun to create.

Paintings by Mike Foley
At the Millennium Center
This Gallery Hop Friday, for one night only, something for the post Thomas Kinkade craze: Color, light and pumpkin houses.
"Pumpkinosity" is the new work by Mike Foley. If you liked the little "balls-to-the-wall" art that was "Pumpkinicity" ('04 at Chelsee's), you'll love the big canvases that are "Pumpkinosity."
"Landscapes rock, and I'm always thinking, hey, why not throw in a big orange pumpkin?" says Foley.
With a date of 10. 01. 10, this show is round and happy.
If your wall needs an orange ball, check out "Pumpkinosity."
Upstairs at the Millennium Center, this Friday. 6-11pm
