"Using Middle America as her muse, Kowch draws the history of a particular place -- invariably rural -- to the surface as it collides with a new reality in layers of metaphor and moodiness. The faces of her women may remind you of characters in a Tim Burton film."

CCS Exhibition: Fun, Friends, and ART!

The College for Creative Studies' 2008 Exhibition Opening took place Friday, and a great time was had by all! The Opening Reception and Sale is always a big event here in Detroit, with more art on display than most can get through in one night. I had the honor and privilege of meeting my wonderful collectors, and want to give a HUGE "Thank You" to all who came out and supported us this year!

The guys that help make it all happen . . .Don Kilpatrick and Dave Chow, illustrators at the top of their game, and two people whom I'm lucky to call my lifelong mentors and friends. These guys are the backbone and driving force of the CCS Illustration department, always putting in countless hours and energy day and night into teaching, aside from running their own busy lives as professionals. You guys absolutely ROCK!

The show's only as good as the people who've put their backs into creating the pieces. You and your peers have been pushing hard all year long and have really pulled out all the stops. The show looks amazing because of you and your classmates' stellar efforts. Job well done!
