LIC Arts Open 2014

Yesterday I headed over to apartment 803 in the new TFCornerstone building, located at 4610 Center install my paintings for the upcoming LIC Arts Open festival. It was a cloudy and misty day and quiet by the waterfront. Unpacked the artwork, laid out the level, nails and hammer and got to work. The result turned out nicely, with 10 paintings hanging on the white walls. I picked out a variety of subjects - reflection paintings, LIC scenes and urban street scenes. The Scribner's II painting is an old favorite. I just LOVE that building on Fifth Avenue - so gracefully designed and a challenge to paint. Nice to have the opportunity to exhibit it.

There will be an opening reception on Wed., May 14, from 5:30-8pm during the Vernon Blvd Nabe Night. I, along with the other four artists selected will have pastels, photography, abstract paintings and ceramics on view, along with the spectacular views from the apartment windows. Lots of events on and around Vernon.

On Saturday, May 17th, the Spring Stroll along Vernon Blvd. will take place - a giant block party. Here's hoping the weather cooperates, though it is a rain or shine event.

If you are planning to come out to LIC anytime during the festival, just let me know and I'll be happy to meet up with you. I plan to be busy, checking out the art exhibits, the street fair and of course, meeting folks at my exhibit in apartment 803. Hope to see you there.
