New Year New Show

"LIC Jackson Crossroads"
Oil on canvas
10x10 inches

Starting 2010 off right.

First off, wishing you all a Happy New Year! And a big thank-you for your comments and support of my efforts with this blog.

The new year finds me not only wearing the hat of the artist, but I've now added the hat of curator as well. A new exhibit sponsored by Women in the Arts Foundation, Inc. features four New York artists, exploring the urban landscape in their own individual styles. We're installing the show on Wednesday in the Lobby Showcases located in the atrium of the Citicorp Center building in Long Island City - Queen's tallest building. I am happy to have this opportunity to show some of my LIC-themed paintings in the neighborhood that inspired them. Several paintings of the Long Island City courthouse - just across the street from Citicorp - will be on display along with paintings of P.S.1, the #7 train, Jackson Avenue, construction workers and Brook's restaurant. Diane Waller, Elinore Bucholtz and Carole Barlowe, the other participating artists work range from abstract to realistic to mixed media and I think the selection of art will make for an interesting exhibit. It's been a new experience pulling this together and hopefully the installation will go well.

If you're in the neighborhood and would like to stop by to see the show, Citicorp is located at One Court Square on Jackson Avenue. Just head for the Atrium and check out the six lobby showcases. The hours are 7 am - 7pm Monday through Friday. The show will run for 3 months though March. The #7 and the E trains are nearby.
