10th Annual Northeast National Pastel Exhibition

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."
