Upcoming gallery openings and art fairs

To start the fall display of gallery openings and events, 3 of my images will be part of the 3rd annual Governor’s Island Art Fair exhibiting with TheGreatNude Small Works. Although the images are B&W they are a part of my “All That Glitters” body of works.

So come out and support and meet some of the NY Metro area artists who will be there for the opening.

The Art Fair runs form Sept 4th through the 26th on Saturdays and Sundays only.  And remember the gift of art is lasting and can have good investment value as the emerging artists’ work original or ltd editions increase over time.

So if you don’t want to be stuck in traffic on the LIE or GSP heading to the beaches, wander around the Island.  The island also is home to the National Historic Landmark District featuring 18th Century fortifications so wear comfortable shoes as you stroll the grounds.

There is no admission fee to enter the Fair where 120 abandoned army barracks will be filled with visual art, music and performers.
