For this project, over 50 pieces were exhibited in the Buckhead Public Library -a 20,000 sq ft space that's part of the Atlanta-Fulton Public Libray System. The exhibition lasted for 2 months in 2 parts; comprising selections from the Man of Mystery – LEGENDS digital print series, and select digital prints of my architectural and transportation designs. The show was entitled “Max Eternity: Shape and Shadow: A Double Solo Exhibition” and included an a/v presertation and talk, entitled “Design is the Ultimate Sign of Intelligence.” Before and thereafter, more than a dozen works of art were sold.
Because I am a visionary polymath, I present and promote my art as beautiful collectable objects, as well as historical artifacts on the timeline of humanity's creative trajectory. As is the case with every work I create, exhibit and/or sell, I hold them high as visual voices and cultural elixers, and as symbols of technological advancement that can also provide a means or doorway to educational discussions on the arts and humanities, and history.
This exhibition and presentation was many years in the making. Because it took place in a government facility, approval had to be requested and granted by several government administrators. The gallery coordinator for the Buckhead Public Library, Cheryl D'Amato provided invaluable assistance, as did my representing agent [at the time] Byrma Braham of Avisca Fine Art.
The totality of my artistic capabilities were explored in this exhibition, which included examples of large format digital prints and select dye-sublimated prints on aluminum panel. The exhibition also included printed renderings of my transportation and architectural designs, and my career as an arts writer, historian and speaker was allowed to shine in this project.
