On June 11, I attended the artists reception for the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic Annual Showcat the Salamagundi Club in New York City. I was fortunate enough to have my painting Gablesland Trail Along the Eno (bottom Picture) selected for the show. The show had an incredibly strong selection of about 80 works. The winner of the Robert Sanstrom prize was Nina Maguire's New York City, July 4th (top picture). I chatted with Nina Maguire about her career as an artist, her passion for art is very evident in powerful works like this.
Eileen and I enjoyed the weekend in New York. On Saturday night we saw Red a broadway play depicting the life of Mark Rothko and his studio assistant. An amazing play portraying the personality of a great artist.
The long lines and crowds at the MOMA did not dissuade us from seeing the most amazing collection of art anywhere in the world. Although my feet were tired on Sunday from all the walking it was really a great weekend.
