Three of my pieces were selected for a juried show at the River Front Gallery in Yonkers, NY. The opening was on 11/1/18, with more receptions on December 6 and January 3. The theme is Objet Trouve', or "found art." Works made of everyday materials and objects not usually used in works of art. Somehow, push-pins. ping-pong balls, paper-clips and pipe-cleaners fit in this category! The show runs until January 2, 2019.
Walking down Main St. one recent morning, and came across a new art gallery opening up in Peekskill - The Evolution Gallery. So went inside and met the owner, Evelyn Lee, who expressed a great deal of interest in my work. Her gallery is dedicated to local artists doing original work, and I must say the stuff I do fits right in. She has chosen 3 pieces - "Caged Tweets", "Ordered Chaos" and "Two Rings" to start with. As they say, this could be the start of a beautiful friendship...
Racing to the finish line - relocating all of my
art to my new studio in Peekskill in time for the Open Studios Festival where
the local artists open their doors to the public. Great turnout and even a few sales. Most of all, made the space ready for private
showing anytime going forward. Also, all
of the art is on-site or in storage, ready for delivery. The goal is to keep work / art in balance. Order and Chaos.
After ten years and over 200 works of Art, I am finally
hanging out my shingle and offering up pieces for private viewing and online
sales. I have just opened my own private
gallery in Peekskill, NY and have 30+ works mounted, 50+ works in on-site
storage and 120+ works in off-site storage.
In addition, I have created a new menu item in my Zhibit Gallery page called
“For Purchase” for on-line customers.
This is linked to PayPal and includes shipping choices.
My private studio gives me the opportunity to not only show
selected works, but also provides a workshop environment for new art. (It also happens to provide me with a “work-from-home”
office space for my day job, which I continue love doing.)
