I feel so blessed to have my painting “Brant Rock” chosen to be exhibited in the National Juried Art Show “Color” at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition. The juror for this exhibition is Marcela Guerrero, Assistant Curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art.

“In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is—as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art. In order to use color effectively it is necessary to recognize that color deceives continually. Color is “passive,” “deceptive,” and “unstable,” color behaves, color  is magic.”   – Joseph Albers, Interaction of Color

Gallery Exhibition Dates: July 28 – August 19, 2018 weekends 1-6PM
