Since 1979, he has exhibited his works throughout the U.S. at art festivals, galleries, trade shows, and conventions where he has received numerous awards, including the Medal of Honor n Graphics from the American Artists Professional League. In 1999, a baseball image was accepted at the Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame Museum. He has completed a baseball mural for Turner Stadium, in Atlanta, Georgia, and had a display of Negro League prints at Veteran’s Stadium in Philadelphia, PA., during 2000. He also completed a mural for West Chester Community center, West Chester, PA in 2000, which was 8 x 80 feet.
His work has appeared in Sports Illustrated, on ESPN’s website, Scholastic Books published by McGraw-Hill, as well as the Western Journal of Black Studies vol. 16. Dane’s work has also appeared on TV shows such as “The Cosby Show” and “Roseanne”. Articles have appeared on Dane in U.S. Art, Upscale, and Black Parenting magazines. He has advertised in Black Enterprise, American Visions, Essence, Decor Magazine and Art Business News. Dane was also featured in the Four Seasons of Chester County by Red Hamer, a publication which features the works of Chester County artists.
He has had his work on exhibit in 1989 and 1995 at the Afro-American Historical and Cultural Museum in Philadelphia. In 1998-99, Dane exhibited his works in one-man shows at Widener University, West Chester University, University of Pennsylvania, and the Butler Institute of Fine Art in Youngstown, OH.

Dane’s works have been presented to various notables such as Dave Winfield, Ozzie Davis, Nelson Mandela, William Cosby, Luster Products Corporation, Nabisco Corporation, MBNA, Southco, and Astra-Zeneca, to name a few. He was commissioned by the 100 Black Men of America to complete their annual poster in 2000. He was selected by the Bethlehem Music Festival to do the 2000 poster.
