Accepted into New York Art Exhibit!

I just received word that a painting of mine was accepted into the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe's Art Club's 112th Annual Open Exhibition at the National Arts Club in NYC. The painting, "Tea with Anne," depicts Anne Heilman enjoying tea at my mom's house. The exhibition will be open to the public from September 23 to October 13, 2008 from 3pm to 6pm, Monday through Friday, 1pm-6pm Saturday and Sunday. Please call the National Arts Club at 212-475-3424 before visiting as the galleries do close for official functions. The National Arts Club's address is 15 Gramercy Park South, NY, NY 10003.

It's an honor to be included in this open (not limited to members) juried exhibition which includes works in a variety of media by women artists from all over the United States. The Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club is one of the oldest women's art clubs in the country and was founded in 1896 in honor of Miss Wolfe, a prominent New York philanthropist and art collector.

Jill, You have certainly captured the blithe spirit and love of life Anne exudes. At 98, she's an amazing lady! Your ability to reflect not only physical features in your portraits, but the personalities of your subjects as well, clearly enhance each painting while attesting to the heart and talent that are uniquely yours.

Anne must be thrilled to be a part of such a highly recognized and respected art exhibit in NYC. A huge honor for her...and for you!
