This painting has been accepted into an exhibit scheduled for this summer at Snug Harbor Cultural Center, Staten Island NY just a hop skip and a jump from the ferry to Manhattan!!!  Hooray!!   It is going to be a feminist them exhibit titled DON'T SHUT UP!" This painting I named "ME, TOO" in honor of the recent upsurge in people objecting to being objectified!

The exhibit DON'T SHUT UP got postponed by the pandemic until the fall of 2021. There is an online version of the exhibit that is quite beautiful and striking/startling.

That's the title of my one person exhibit at the Dougherty Art Center.

 It is a big space. The building used to be a military recruiting center. It is scheduled for major renovation in the next year or so. I'm glad I got to exhibit in this incarnation of the building. "Retro style" fits my artwork. 

This newly completed painting is 60 inches tall!
