One End Open

Very excited that 6 of my paintings will be in the "One End Open" exhibit along with four other women at the Paula Estey Gallery from March 16th - April 21st. This exhibit celebrates women and how we take the role of the bridge-builders in life. The reception is March 16th, 6-8:30pm and there's an artist talk on Saturday, March 17th, 1-2pm with Cameron Sesto and me. I will also be at the reception. The Paula Estey Gallery is located at 3 Harris Street, Newburyport, MA. This painting is "The Future Is What We Say It Is". As a child my friends and I would play with ouija boards. Without having to say anything before, we would automatically make the ouija board spell out the answers we knew we each wanted to hear and then declare that it would come true because the ouija board said it. Women have the power to not only create their own destinies but to improve the world and be a positive force in it.

SHELTER has become an annual National Association of Women Artist exhibit at the Harlem School of the Arts. This pleases me to no end because the show was my idea and I brought these two wonderful organizations together. SHELTER is more important than ever, especially when it comes to refugees, immigrants, those struggling to pay the rent, homelessness, climate change, drug addiction and victims of domestic violence.The exhibit is open from March 1, 2018 - March 31, 2018.

The image on the flyer is “Survived” by Marlann Gorsky.

It’s The State Of The Art

Happy to announce that my painting "i am AFRAID" will be featured in the "State Of The Art 2018" exhibit from February 2 - April 27, 2018 at the Academy Square Galleries located at 33 Plymouth Street, Montclair, NJ. I've been thinking a lot lately about refugees and immigrants. If you look closely you'll see there are at least 15 scared people hiding in addition to many people in the shadows running in search for a safe harbor.

Magical Munch

The Edvard Munch exhibit “Edvard Munch: Between The Clock And The Bed” at the Met Breur is fantastic. Runs though February 4th if you’re in the area. 

My terrible photography does to do his exquisite painting “Ashes” justice.

Big Thumbs Up To The Holidays

"Thumbs Up” was a commission to be ready for the holidays from an amazing couple. It was my desire to have the painting represent freedom, love and adventure as I felt this is what represents the two of them. Here’s wishing a big Thumps Up for Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year to everyone

Aliens Welcome Here

For anyone in the South Florida area, you can go see "Aliens Having Fun In NYC" at the Marco Island Center for the Arts where it's hanging in their Gift Gallery. I think these aliens are illegal but they look nice and friendly to me. The Marco Island Center for the Arts is located at 1010 Winterberry Drive, Marco Island, Florida.

Easy Come Easy Go

I was all excited because I was offered a commission to do three murals for three walls from a wonderful and prestigious organization. We met in person and discussed what they wanted and I instantly had all these ideas and visions for their walls. They then gave me their floor-plan and the dimensions of the walls. Everything was looking good and falling in place. But, and this is the big but, when I said I could paint them in January, they said they needed them painted in December. Unfortunately, I can’t do them in December due to other commitments. So disappointed because I really wanted to do them but such is life. Oh well. Easy come, easy go. I do realize this is a first world problem.
