No Viking Left Behind

Following an extremely busy art show season and struggling with the limitations of my current Web site, I have decided to switch Web platforms to better serve my growing tribe of patrons, collectors and supporters.

What does this mean for you?  If you currently follow my blog at http://www.jorn.com and want to continue doing so, you will need to journey with me to my new web platform. The domain name (www.jorn.com) will actually remain the same, but you will no longer receive updates from the previous platform (WordPress) once this switch is made and will need to re-follow me on the new platform to ensure you continue to receive my communications.

The transition will happen in about a week and I am sharing this with you all now to ensure no viking is left behind.  I will post here again once the site and the blog have landed in their new home and share with you all the exciting new features that will be available.

Voyages of Aric The Viking


Here is my confirmed art show schedule for 2017. There are a few shows that have yet to complete their jurying process, so I will add to this schedule over the course of the summer as announcements are made.

As we get closer to individual shows, I will post booth numbers and other details about each venue. For now, I will simply say that I am extremely excited for this season. I have added several new shows to the rotation (KRASL, Edina, Oak Brook) and am also returning to several of my favorites (Art & Apples, East Lansing, Central PA). I am looking forward to reconnecting with friends, fellow artists and patrons whom I’ve known for years as well as meeting new ones. I hope to see you all at one of these excellent shows.

Until then, it’s back to the studio for me … I’ve much to get ready for.

Moving Pictures

No, this isn’t a post about my favorite Rush album nor a piece on early American cinema, but rather a quick year end announcement. Last Tuesday, I packed up my car to deliver half a dozen pieces for two public exhibitions in which I am involved.


The first is the premier exhibit at The Gallery, a new fine art venue in Saginaw (the Grand Opening of which was this past Friday night). Hanging alongside other noted Michigan artists, several of my pieces will be on display in rotation now through June 2017. The gallery is housed in the historic Bancroft building at E. Genesee and S. Water Street on the banks of the Saginaw River. This latest cultural attraction boasts 5,000 square feet of gallery space and I am delighted to be a part of it.

farmington-public-art-projectTwo of my pieces were also selected as part of the Farmington Hills Public Art Program. They will be on display at the City Hall of Farmington Hills now through December 2018. Having had a sneak preview of the other 70 works to be included during this two-year exhibit, I highly encourage you to check it out if you are in the area. City Hall is located at 31555, 11 Mile road in Farmington Hills, MI 48336.

I am truly excited for these and all the other opportunities that have come my way this year and cannot wait to share with you all that is in store for 2017. Until then, have a wonderful Winter Solstice, a joyful Yule, a merry Christmas, etc.
