May 2013 - Cool news, I am very Grateful to writer Mark Leydorf and Editors of Poz Magazine for including a nice JPEG of my painting "Eric Seated, Chair, 2012", in the June 2013 Issue! It is included in a great article that Leydorf wrote about "Visual AIDS" celebrating their 25th year of existence. I am mentioned in the article too... here's the blurb: "Meanwhile, VA has developed it's Artist Registry, a virtual gallery that memorializes trailblazers who are gone and that nurtures a growing army of artists who are very much alive. Oils by George Towne rub shoulders with the Lethal Weapons series by Barton Lidice Benes and with fuck-yous from David Wojnarowicz". Thanks, Mark & Poz Mag!

February 2013 - Two upcoming shows are "in the works"...
I'm grateful to be having yet another Solo show at Michael Mut Gallery this coming July 2013 (tentatively titled "George Towne: Painted Love"). (see: http://michaelmutgallery.com/ )
Also - I will be a part of a group show of about 13 artists that have drawn at the Fire Island Life Drawing Group called "Pines Nude Drawing" (see: http://pinesnudedrawing.com/ ), which will be displayed here in New York at the Leslie/Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art's "Annex Gallery" on Prince Street the first week of April. (see: http://leslielohman.org/index.html )
I will post more about these as the information is available - hope to see you at these two Events! - George
