My Painting at Staten Island Museum's Show!

Fabulous, blue sky weather for an opening!
Heading in to the Juried Art Show 2012 exhibition opening at Staten Island Museum
Things got a bit busy here so I'm just now getting to posting pics from the opening reception at Staten Island  Museum, where one of my paintings took part in this year's Juried Art Show. The opening's turnout was great and it was so beautifully organized. They put all the refreshments on the first floor where people could have some light snacks and wine while enjoying the natural science collection, while the majority of the second floor area was for the selected artworks. I loved the enthusiasm of the people who attended the reception. They really took time to take in each piece and examined them closely. It was a nice crowd! Juried Art 2012 runs until Sept. 23, so there's still time to see my painting there and all the other terrific artworks.

Again, I feel so honored to be part of this great show. Thank you Staten Island Museum!
