Great happenings this summer! While attending Ragtime at the Starlight Theatre in Wilmette, which starred some friends from Kol Hadash, I discovered that "Footlights" program cover for June/July 2008 was one of my watercolors called "Stage Show." I felt quite flattered.
Three other happenings this summer: include two of my oils were published in "East on Central", a journal of arts and letters from Highland Park, IL. Volume 7; my being juried into "Caught in the Act", the sixth international show being held at the Northbrook Public Library in Northbrook, Illinois, opening reception October 3rd and running through October 31st. My oil is called "Magic Finale". This is the second year I have been so honored in "East on Central" and the Northbrook show.; the third great happening is my acceptance into "The Evanston Art Walk" which runs during October sponsored by Anatomically Correct Gallery http://anatomicallycorrect.org/ . You can view my oil "Family Sunset" seen above in the window of Dancing Bear Gallery at 1922 Central Street, Evanston, Illinois.
My 30 limited repro sketches of "music makers" seem to be selling A-OK. I have them selling at the following in Illinois: Family Piano Company http://familypianoco.com/ in Waukegan Music Center of Deerfield www.deerfieldmusic.com in Deerfield Pieces Gallery http://www.piecesgallery.net/ Highland Park As You Like It Gallery 2558 Green Bay Road Winnetka and Kurt Saphire Pianos http://www.kurtsaphirpianos.com/ Wilmette.
Now if I could sell a few oils and water colors, I could say the year will end with even greater happenings.
