This show Mike’s third, one person show for the Art Center. ‘Multiple Personalities’ features three different disciplines that he is creatively involved with at the present time. HIs assemblages receive the greatest share of his effort; but the spray panels, which morphed out of his assemblage work, have become a major creative challenge. Most recently, he has been trying to integrate his first love, oil painting, back into his repertoire.
