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.
We had a wonderful time at the opening reception last night. What a fantastic turnout! It's great to see so many art enthusiasts, especially on such a chilly night. Thanks to everyone that was able to make it.
Who knew? Carolers like art, too!
The participating artists were Jacques Albert, Andre Kan, Melissa Espina, Brenda Clews, Judy McKenna, Donna Gordon, Musa Musa, Choi Ka-Eun Jane Hur, David Cumming, Earl Elowsky, Gail Gregory, Nola McConnan, Nazli Nahidi, Vashty Hawkins, Kathy Vatcher, Carol Steinberg, David Brandy, Felicity Somerset, Anthony Smerek, Reuben Looyenga, Ann Somers, Shyla Tibando, Jennifer Hosein, Amy Siegel, Lisa Fox, Michaela Nessim, Colin Asuncion, Reuben Looyenga, Norman Allan
And, here is my work.
A few days ago, Steph and I took on the challenge of a Toronto-to-Montreal-to-Toronto drive in one day. Despite the fact that my husband and I are two of the most entertaining and humorous people I know, eleven or so hours in a car requires a variety of diversions to maintain the sanity of the journeyers. Fear not! We emerged from this vehicular madness unscathed and on good terms. The images in this post are the photographic results of our trip.
Also, while I have your attention, I'd like to remind everyone that the opening reception for the Yellow House Gallery December Salon Show & Sale is a week away. It'd be great to see you there!
