The First Street Gallery is delighted to welcome visitors back to engage directly with artwork. To protect the health and safety of the staff and visitors, all CDC and government guidelines are being followed. Masks and social distancing are required. A limited number of visitors will be allowed at a time, touchless hand sanitizer will be available, and gallery surfaces will be disinfected between visitors.
I've been invited to share the First Street Gallery exhibition space in Chelsea with one of my favorite artists, Wendy Gittler. I'm very excited about this new work! Alas, there will be no Opening Party because of the need for social distancing, but the gallery will be open Tuesdays through Fridays 11-4 and Saturdays 11-6. If anyone would like to meet up with Wendy and me at the gallery so we can talk about the work, please let me and/or the gallery know ahead of time and we will do our best to meet you there!

I'm honored to have been invited for the seventh year in a row to participate as a Visiting Artist in Harvard's Freshmen Arts Program. This year I gave two Ink/Collage Masterclasses to incoming students. What a pleasure to be able to share my passion for this work with new artists!
I was privileged to lead an intensive 4-day workshop in Ink/Collage at the gorgeous Baer Art Center in Hofsos, Iceland. We had an amazing group of serious and talented artists all enthusiastic about experimenting and pushing their norms - it was very exciting for all of us!
My partner Rick and I rented car and 4x4 to travel the perimeter of Iceland and venture into the interior, which is open only 2 months a year because of the climate. This was an extraordinary trip, and Iceland is back at the top of our Bucket List to return and spend a longer time there!
I was gifted with a special month's Artist Residency for Alumni Fellows at fabulous I-Park in East Haddam, Connecticut. Winter was slowly turning into Spring, a bit wet to work outdoors, but my huge studio had a floor to ceiling wall of glass overlooking trees and walks in the woods provided me with inspiring source material for a new body of ink and acrylic collages.
My oil painting Passport appears in NBC's hot new television series New Amsterdam!
Passport was inspired by my month-long photographic assignment in Egypt in 2006, and it took me over a period of 12 years to get every little "portrait" to have its own sense of presence.
