Thrilled to announce that I've been awarded the Judge’s Choice, Honorable Mention at the 10th Annual Northeast National Pastel Exhibition for my pastel John In E Minor! Thanks to Exhibition Juror of Awards, David Francis, PSA!
The show opens at View Arts Center in Old Forge, NY on Saturday, June 28 with a reception from 5-7 pm. I'm teaching a workshop that day at Saratoga Arts but I hope to still make it.
This piece also won the Maryland Pastel Society award at the Pastel Society of America's annual show at the Salmagundi Club last autumn. It's a piece that seems to resonate with a lot of people. Probably the best comment I received on it was from a musician who asked me for a print. He said (I paraphrase) : "I've never been much of an art guy but I love that piece."
