ARC Select Exhibit at Rehs Contemporary Galleries

I'm very excited to be part of an upcoming exhibit at Rehs Contemporary Galleries in New York City. This was an opportunity that came to me as a result of entering the Art Renewal Center's annual salon competition. Rehs Galleries chose six artists out of approximately 530 finalists to participate in this exhibition, and I was one of the lucky chosen. The other artists are pretty amazing: Duffy Sheridan, Joseph McGurl, Richard Hall, Phillipe Attie, and Walter Rane. This is going to be an impressive show, and I'm thrilled to be a part of it! The exhibit runs from October 22 to November 18, with the opening reception on October 22, from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm. If you are in the NYC area, I hope you'll consider coming to the opening reception. I'd love to meet you! 

I've got six paintings in the exhibit, all featuring tin toys from the 1950's and 1960's. They were so fun to collect, and much more fun to paint! I'm leaving tomorrow for Washington, D.C. and then on to New York City for the opening. When I get back from my trip I'll post all of them for you to see. But for now, I'll show you the biggest painting I have in the show:
