Mom Would Be So Happy

A super nice perk from being the 2014 recipient of the Joseph Bartnikowski Scholarship. I was contacted by the Central Islip Library Galleria, Central Islip being the community where Joseph Bartnikowski lived and painted, and they have given me a one-person show from April 4th to May 30, 2015. The Galleria is at 33 Hawthorne Avenue, Central Islip NY. Below is one of the paintings in the show, "I Was Really Something". It's based on my mother, Celia Carlin, who passed away from Alzheimer's on August 1, 2006.

Violence Transformed

Violence Transformed, one of my very favorite art events, has selected “so Sad Sweatshop” and “Bittersweet Chocolate” for the “Violence Transformed 2015: Art Speaks Truth to Power” exhibit at the Massachusetts Ave Gallery located at 1000 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA.

These two pieces from my Human Trafficking series will be on view from Saturday, March 21 through Friday, April 10. The reception will be on Saturday, March 28, 2015 from 4 - 7 pm.

Violence Transformed is dedicated to celebrating the power of art, artists and art-making to confront, challenge and mediate violence. I’m so happy my paintings are a part of this.
