Upcoming May exhibit in LIC

"Jesse's Place"
Oil on canvas
12 x 12 inches

Today's painting is a new one and the building depicted will be the site of my upcoming exhibit in May, during the LIC Arts Open. Jesse Winters, a fine photographer, has taken over a small, two story space as his photography studio/workshop and gallery space now named Ten10 Studios. He has hosted some interesting exhibits since coming to LIC and I'm looking forward to showing my work there. Dan, an enthusiastic collector and proud owner of several "Florins" here in LIC, offered to curate an exhibit of my paintings and everything fell into place. The show will be up from May 17-20 during the LIC Arts Open when there will be many art and theater events, open studios, restaurant specials and more in the nabe. I'll post more information about the exhibit as the date gets closer.

On another note, I started this blog around this time 5 years ago in order to share my paintings with those people interested in art of the urban environment, and in my case, the New York City scene in particular. It's been interesting to pick paintings and write something about them, adding another dimension and backstory to a work of art. After 5 years, I find I'm slowing down a bit with posting to the blog (blogger burnout does happen), but I do plan to continue sharing my art and news. Thank you to all who've been following these posts.

I do wish I could be there for the LIC Open Arts! What a wonderful building in which to have your exhibit.
