When I was in Tanzania this year I met a young gifted artist who works with a safari company to lead safaris for artists. He asked if i could circulate his flyer at home. His program sounds amazing and fun. I think people who come into the gallery might be interested.
Congratulations are in order for Karen Kirshner, who won first place in the Westbury Arts competition. She is shown below with the juror, a curator at the Nassau County Museum, and her winning painting, Faith #2, left. The other painting is After the Storm. See her work at Westbury Arts on Schenk Avenue just off Post Road through the end of September.
