Baker's Dozen at Gallery Nucleus!

I was recently asked to contribute to a group show that is opening this Saturday at Gallery Nucleus. The title of the show is "Baker's Dozen",with the idea that all of the contributing artists illustrate popular idioms.

For my first piece, I chose the phrase "Drink Like a Fish". Why shouldn't sea creatures enjoy a nice cocktail party once in a while?

And for my second piece, I decided on "An Elephant in the Room". A circus seemed like the appropriate venue for such an expression.

Here is all of the show information from the gallery:
