John Dilg - Arterial Resources is a 2019 exhibit at the Figge Art Museum which says: "The exhibition takes its name from the eponymous painting of a verdant mound, bubbling with streams of life-giving water and by implication the fragility of life should earth's arteries run dry." Accessed 5/20

The Unbridled Paintings of Lawrence Lebduska is a 2019 exhibit at the Mennello Museum of American Art which says: "Lebduska's dreamlands and invented gardens teem extraordinarily with life and optimism in a nostalgic, uncorrupted style that captured the admiration of the American public.
