Hanging My First Solo Show and Going Back to My Roots

Framing, Framing, Framing

From November 1 - 30, I will have my very first ever solo show! I'll be exhibiting my artwork (watercolors and pastels) in the gallery at the East Islip Public Library. The library is located at 381 East Main Street, East Islip, NY 11709

There will be a reception on Sunday November 9 from 2-4 pm. Everyone is invited.

I am delighted to be able to have my first solo exhibit in a place that meant so much to me growing up. East Islip Library was one of my favorite places since I was a toddler and the library was on the other end of town next to St. Mary’s. I worked here as a page and later as a clerical assistant – it was one of my favorite places to work and I made many friends and great memories here. 

Coincidentally, my mom's quilting group (Patches and Pieces) will also have their works on exhibit in the display cases as you enter the gallery area.

Meanwhile, I'm desperately trying to finish this one of Brookwood Hall in East Islip. 
I can hang it a little late, can't I?

Many thanks to my friend Diane who passed this "time slot" off to me when she decided she couldn't do it and some dear friends who loaned me paintings they've bought despite the fact that it leaves a big "hole" on their living room walls. Last but certainly not least, a HUGE thank you to my mom, who helped me hang the show (that second pair of eyes is so necessary).  

See you next Sunday!
