Accepted into NYC's Salmagundi Club Annual Juried Exhibition
Just got back (from the Salon International 2009 show in San Antonio) and the mailbox held news that two of my drawings were accepted into the Salmagundi Club Annual Juried Photography and Graphics Exhibition for Non-Members. Perhaps not a catchy title for an exhibition, but still very nice news. Graphics means drawings in Salmagundi Club language. The exhibit will be held at 47 Fifth Avenue in New York City, June 15 through June 26 with a reception on June 26 from 6 to 8pm. The Exhibition is open to the public 7 days a week, 1 to 5pm. That said, since spaces are often used for private events, call first to make sure it's actually open. Salmagundi Club: (212) 255-7740, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

This is the second time I've been accepted into a New York City show. The first was the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club's Annual Juried Exhibition last October. I have many blog entries about that terrific experience.
More of my work can also be seen in New York City at Chelsea 32 Art Group, a gallery that represents my work. Go to their web site (or mine - see my gallery pages) for what's currently there.
