Just found out that the lovely plein air exhibition "A River Runs Through It" hosted by Windham Fine Arts has been extended through Labor Day weekend, and will now close on September 7, 2009. It's a perfect time of year to visit the Catskills - cooler than in NYC, that's for sure! Visit www.windhamfinearts.com for details.
Don't miss this painting as well as six others I have in this show, depicting Riverside Park, the little red lighthouse at the base of the George Washington Bridge, Tarrytown Marina, park in Buchanan, NY, and a couple of views from Peekskill, NY. Visit EllaYangStudio.com to see the paintings (look in City and Country).
I just found out that one of my paintings, Early Evening on Garfield Place, will be included in The Brooklyn Show, a themed-exhibition juried by Florence Neal, the co-founder (1990) and director, of Kentler International Drawing Space in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Ms. Neal is also an artist and her work, along with several , is presented in local, national and international venues. This group show is hosted by the 440 Gallery, a jewel-like gallery in Park Slope, Brooklyn, located at 440 6th Avenue (between 9th & 10th Streets. The show opens on June 25 and runs through July 25, 2009.
Please join me and Mary K. Connelly as we open our exhibition this Saturday, May 30, at the Salmagundi Club in their Patrons' Gallery. We'll both be there all afternoon, 1-6 pm. We'll be showing mostly small works: Mary's interiors are intensely colored and are incredibly evocative; I'll be showing recent street views from Brooklyn and Manhattan, as well as a few landscapes of Block Island and Cape Cod. The show will run through Thursday, June 11, with general hours being Wed - Sun, 1-6 pm, and Thursdays, 1-8 pm. We'll be taking turns gallery-sitting. Contact me if you'd like to know when I'm there! Located at 47 Fifth Ave, at 12th St, it will also be convenient to head over to the Annual Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit.
I finally gave in and bought myself a new toy - a pochade box, aka a tiny all-in-one painting kit that can hold a 9"x12" canvas or panels, brushes, paints, palette, solvents & medium (but not paper towels), and unfolds into a mini-easel. A painter's version of a laptop! I can't wait to take it out for a spin; perhaps at a local coffee shop or ....?
Meanwhile, I dropped off my painting, "Lehigh Valley at Red Hook," at the Salmagundi Club this afternoon for the upcoming "Contemporary New York Harbor" exhibition, Jan 26 - Feb 13.
Don't miss this show which will be in conjunction with another big exhibition, the "History Panorama: Celebrating the 400th Anniversary of the Dutch Discovery of Manhattan". The Salmagundi is at 47 Fifth Avenue @12th Street, NYC. For more info, visit my website's "News" page.
