Happy (Belated) Mothers Day!
In honor of Mothers Day having been this past weekend, I decided to share one of my favorite family pictures depicting my maternal lineage. That fuzzy potato on my grandma Pauline's lap is me and on either side are my great grandma Pearl and my Mama. I thank them for their lessons, patience, grace under challenging circumstances and funky style.
For the last couple of weeks, I've been visiting Mom and Dad on Long Island. So, between the impossible array of events and get togethers that come up when one goes back home for any amount of time, I've managed to squeeze in a mini visit here and there of some of my old stomping grounds and discover new spots, as well. Of course, several of these outings involved catching some great art exhibitions.
Here are some shots from my recent adventures. They include photos of downtown Huntington, the local tulip festival, an opening reception for Stanko's Happy Trails at the Ripe Gallery, an exhibition of Long Island's most talented high school artists at the Heckscher Museum, and both the Kenny Scharf exhibition and the Glamorous Graffiti exhibition at the Nassau County Museum of Art.
