His work has been featured in local exhibitions such as Artomatic 2012 and Flashpoint’s Adventure Residency Art Show, as well as throughout the United States from The Billboard Art Project in San Bernardino, CA to the 4×6 Exhibit at The Art Gallery in Grand Junction, CO. McIntosh has also received a variety of honors and awards, this year he received a Juror’s Honorable Mention Award for each piece: It’s a Wonderful World?, Impressions, and Altered State. McIntosh also does work by commission, actively blogs, and is always looking to advise emerging artists.

Per the Double Take theme, of his work McIntosh states: “The essence of my art is for the viewer to look deep within my images to find something much more than what they originally saw upon the initial view of the pieces. The images I have created have many layers in them, and though at first glance the main composition does register with them, it is upon further reflection that the viewer can see “hidden images” that were originally unnoticeable.”

Events will all be held at The Center for Green Urbanism Tubman-Mahan Gallery:

Opening Reception: Friday, July 27th, 6:30-8:30pm
Artist’s Talk with Russ McIntosh: Saturday, August 18, 5-7pm
