I am super honored to be included in the exhibition titled Converge: Where Classical & Contemporary Art Collide curated by Allison Malafronte, former editor of American Artist Magazine.  Here is just a brief quote from her curator's statement which can be read in full on the website for the exhibition (and while there take a peek at all the work included in the exhibition). 

"If modernism took too drastic a turn from traditional order and beauty and if the post-modern resurgence of classicism went too far into static technical prowess, we are now feeling the push and pull of art being brought back to center—and the artists coming to the surface embody the best of both worlds. The exhibition "Converge" will capture this movement by highlighting painters who demonstrate both the skill and tradition of the classical world and the content and critical thinking of the contemporary world. Rather than looking in confusion or disdain at a particular approach, “Converge” aims to bridge the divide between the classical and the contemporary by bringing high-level paintings in various styles and subject matter together for mutual acknowledgement."

Allison has brought together a stellar roster of artists, most of whom will be in attendance (including yours truly) for the Opening Reception on Thursday, November 15th from 6-9pm.  Come by, see the work and say hello if you are in the big apple!  If you can't make the exhibition, there is a catalog available for purchase on line.  For more information on the catalog visit the Contact page of the website or Click Here.
