‘Note to Self’ by Rodney Hatfield @ Swanson Contemporary

Through Oct. 8

Gallery owners must dance for joy when they represent an artist whose work consistently sells. On that note, Chuck Swanson has to be ecstatic for his show with Rodney Hatfield, aka the Art Snake. Swanson has been exhibiting Hatfield’s work every two years since 1989. “Rodney has an endless enthusiasm for his work, and he’s always changing, growing, working hard,” he says. “Plus he’s a pro and he’s funny, meaning easy to work with. We could really show him once a year, but I like to keep the public a bit more hungry.” So, for the 12th time, Hatfield’s art is on display in Swanson’s gallery. This exhibit features more than 90 small paintings, at least 12 large ones, and a few driftwood sculptures. No need to wait till 2013. —Jo Anne Triplett
