It has been awhile since I posted, but I have been super busy, which is great for a new artist!
I got word back that my seven deadly sins piece, "Lust", was accepted into the member show! If you're a New Yorker and you want to come, and I hope you do... the opening reception will be Thursday June 8th from 7-9pm. My piece will be on view at the gallery until June 29th.
Before the member show, I will be participating in an open studio event. 35 different artists will be showing their work. The public is invited to look through the studios, meet the artists, and ask questions. And of course there will be art for sale!
In addition to these two events, I have another illustration project I am working on that I am so excited about. I'll share more about that when everything is official.
This weekend, Jeff and I went to the Jewish Museum to see an exhibition on one of my favorite artists Florine Stettheimer. I first learned about Florine Stettheimer at the Met but recently she has become increasingly popular.
What I love about Florine's work is the the color palette she uses, which is usually a lot of bright pastel colors. In this exhibit I got to see some different palettes and I loved those as well. Another thing I love about her work is that there is so much going on in each of her paintings. I could stand at each painting for a long time.
Thanks for reading!
