The Butler Institute of American Art

75th National Midyear Exhibition 2011

"Scheffel Hall"
Oil on canvas
24 x 18 inches

My painting of Scheffel Hall, a wonderful building on 17th Street and Third Avenue in Manhattan is currently on view in this annual exhibition in Youngstown, OH. Curated by artist Gary T. Erbe, the show runs from June 26 - August 28. A museum dedicated to American art, it is always an honor to be accepted into the annual exhibit.

This building has been a favorite of architecture buffs (and me) for quite awhile and I finally did a painting. A google search will lead you to the history of this site. It was designated a NYC landmark, thankfully, and stands out from all the rest.

If you're strolling in the neighborhood one day, look up and and enjoy the view.
