Willoughby's World of Wonder

This new book is a faithful reproduction of the famous 1882 edition of Willoughby’s World of Wonder, exact in every detail. Willoughby’s, as it was popularly known, was written by noted cryptozoologist and naturalist, Angus Willoughby. For half a century, this unique reference guide was used as a textbook in many universities around the globe, and was considered a primary reference of many cryptozoological societies and organizations. Years of painstaking research and expert restoration have yielded the amazing rebirth of this treasured book

A New Solo Show!!
I just got word today that I was selected for a solo Exhibition at the Monmouth County Museum in Lincroft, NJ. It is part of their annual Emerging Artist Series where they select six artists for solo shows for the next season. I will be exhibiting my moneyart, an evolution of my solo show from Lock Haven last year. I talked with the museum today, and they said that I would probably get a slot in early fall for my show. I'll keep you posted!

I am in another exhibition! Years ago, several of my works were acquired by Dr. Stefan Haupt and placed into his permanent collection. His collection is quite prestigious and internationally noted. He curates from his collection to create several exhibitions per year. Once again, I am included in his show entitled, "Thirty Pieces of Silver: Money and Art". This exhibition has travelled to several venues and will now be on display at the Association of German Guarantee Banks. The show opened on April 27, and will run through April 2020.

"Language of Power" Gallery Talk by Stephen Barnwell
