Urban: An Explorationof New York's Landscapes

Five pieces were picked up today for the upcoming exhibit, Urban: An Exploration of New York's Landscapes at the Dougherty Gallery at Crescent Grill. The show will feature the work of 5 artists - paintings, pastels, and photography exploring the New York urban landscape, my kind of subject. The Crescent Grill is a newly opened restaurant space in Long Island City, owned and operated by Dan and Shaun Dougherty. Chef Shaun whips up the goodies in the newly designed kitchen while Dan is host. This family run-restaurant opened in an area of LIC undergoing a lot of development and there wasn't much in the way of dining choices until they came along. Dan is a long-time Long Island City resident and a great supporter of the arts - especially local artists. Hence, the intimate gallery space that was created when the restaurant was built.

The opening reception is on Thursday, December 5, 2013 from 6 - 9 pm and the show runs though February 2, 2014. Hope you can stop by.
