Super excited to finally be able to share a few behind the scenes images of “Re:Asvirus 35″—a site specific commissioned mural Derek Lerner created for a collectors private home in Chicago. More to come…

Derek Lerner art included in “An empty Space to fill” exhibition at Sandler Hudson Gallery.

An empty Space to fill, a group show curated by artist William Downs

Exhibition Dates: December 18 – January 15, 2022


Sandler Hudson Gallery is pleased to announce the upcoming group show curated by represented artist William Downs.

Sandler Hudson Gallery is an empty space where I’m bringing together a group of artists from all over the United States that I’ve met through my travels or who are within a five mile radius of my life. An empty space is a place where artists feel with their thoughts, dreams, anxieties, emotions, and compositions. An empty space is where an artist creates their magic. Mark-making and color is used by all of these artists as a way of channeling their physical and mental gestures into work that makes you feel something.

The show will include work from the following artists:

Krista Clark (Atlanta)

Elizabeth Ferrill (Colorado)

Michael Jones (Atlanta)

Gracelee Lawrence (New York)

Derek Lerner (New York)

Ash McNamara (Atlanta)

Michi Meko (Atlanta)

Michael Reese (Atlanta)

Marc Aundre Robinson (New York)

Tim Short (Atlanta)

Jason Sweet (Atlanta)

Scott Taylor (Los Angeles)

Recently, Mondadori (AKA “the biggest publishing company in Italy”) asked to use one of my drawings as the book cover for Mitchell’s novel Cloud Atlas, Italian language limited edition print run of 500.
