I seem to have the busiest May ever … and I’m thrilled.
Two paintings of mine will be exhibited at “Open Orange 2016”– an annual exhibition at the Firehouse Gallery , 580 Forest Street Orange NJ which opens this Thursday May 12, 6-9 pm. It’s in a beautiful restored firehouse, which is the centerpiece of the Valley Arts District in West Orange/Orange NJ. The show runs May 12- June 12, 2016.
I was honored to have my works chosen : the nationally prominent jurors were:
Tricia Bloom, was previously the associate curator of exhibitions at the Brooklyn Museum. Bloom is the current curator of American art at New Jersey’s Newark Museum.
Diedre Harris-Kelley, is the co-director of the Romare Bearden Foundation. An accomplished artist, Harris-Kelley is the curatorial lead for the foundation.
Marie Samuels, is the executive president of Artadia, an art and dialogue foundation in NYC. Samuels also serves on the acquisitions committee for the Parrish Art Museum, Long Island, NY.
I also have two paintings at the National Art League, 44-21 Douglaston Parkway, Douglaston, NY 11363 (near Queens). The opening is Sunday, May 15th, 2-4 pm. It’s the 86th Annual (!) Open Juried Exhibition and this year’s juror is national and international renowned artist Hayoon Jay Lee.
I have 2 more shows this month, toward the end of the month – May 20th at Urban Folk Gallery and May 25th at Site Brooklyn, both in Brooklyn. I’ll give those details in a separate post soon. And, if you can believe it, I’m having a solo exhibition at Brooklyn Oneology on June 2, in Williamsburg. I’d better get back to the easel…
