NEWS: Flower Series on 12" Vinyl Records accepted in juried art show

I am honored and thrilled to announce that two of the four macro flower pieces done on 12" vinyl records were submitted and accepted in a juried art show called: In Full Bloom, which will run from July 18th to August 14 at Mills Pond House Gallery in St. James, NY. This will be my first juried art show, and I am quite excited.

Mills Pond House Gallery is operated by Smithtown Township Arts Council, a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization. With ten exhibition opportunities each year, artists from almost every state in the nation have exhibited there over the past 34 years. Guest jurors contribute to the critical dimension of the selected works in the gallery, providing a venue for artists working in a wide variety of media and subject.
