The NEW LIC and the 2014 LIC Arts Open

A few months ago I completed a commission for a LIC building owner. He then asked me to create a painting of another property he owns in the neighborhood. This is new construction on a side street filled with older buildings, formerly the scene of much manufacturing of goods. This building does stand out with it's angles, brick and large glass windows.

I continue to wander around Long Island City, camera in hand, amazed at all the development that continues on non-stop. Speaking of new development, I am one of 5 artists who will be exhibiting artwork in the upcoming Long Island City Arts Open 2014 in spanking new studio apartments in a brand new T.F. Cornerstone building on the waterfront. There will be a reception on May 14th during Vernon Blvd Nabe Night and the exhibit will be up throughout the festival. Fabulous views of the Manhattan skyline, as well as some wonderful artwork on display. More info to come soon.
