ArtHouse3 is a 19 year-old small business committed to supporting, exhibiting and placing regional art. Two recent exhibits are above - one in Tampa, General Assembly, that showed in Quaid gallery - and the other in St. Pete, Block Party, site specific installation by Ry McCullough in Drive-by Window (click Exhibits tab for details). Below center was my first artist panel as a (former) Gallery Director, with my good friend and talented artist, George Anderton. On left, I'm happily in the midst of Tempus Projects board members - including (l to r) Bob Ballard, TP Founder Tracy Midulla, Sarah Howard, Desmond Clark - as they received a well deserved Tampa Bay Business Committee for the Arts (TBBCA) Impact Award. On right, with a treasured group of artists and curators at The Morean Arts Center where I worked as guest curator and creator of Orange State (click image for names).

Beginnings | ArtHouse3 began as a recurring open house gallery (Art House) in my then Tampa home, and over the last 18 years has evolved into a roving art consulting business. Clients range from corporate offices looking to build art collections to first-time buyers seeking a specific piece. Project work includes creating exhibits in unlikely places (e.g. rustic Florida lake house below - see POP UPs) and serving as a guest curator as often as possible. 

Art Advising | As a regional art advisor, I delight in collaborating with clients to find, select and install art for their respective environments. Motivated to keep creative talent in the area, I concentrate on showing and placing the work of local and regional Florida artists.


Arthouse3 is included or featured in a variety of recent publications sharing ideas on how to incorporate regional art into your home or work environment.
