I can’t believe that the public gallery debut of “Abstracted Rainy Moments” at the Samaritans of RI Forget-Me-Not Gallery is finally coming to a close. The solo exhibition of oil paintings has been open for about three months from April to June 2017. There have been many events and programs throughout, and now it will all be coming to a close, as all good things do.
The closing reception will be held on Friday, June 23, 2017 from 5pm-8pm at the Samaritans of Rhode Island Forget-Me-Not Gallery at 67 Park Place, Pawtucket, Rhode Island. I will give a brief talk about the art, followed by announcing the winner(s) of the People’s Poetry Prize award!
A newly-printed catalog of the Abstracted Rainy Moments exhibition will also be there, fresh off the press! People can look it over, and even order the catalog to take home to keep an archival version of this exhibit, with special back-stories to each of the paintings, a little about the artist, the gallery, and a special piece published by an art review of the exhibit, along with a curator’s statement by Eric J. Auger, Curator-in-Residence for the Samaritans of Rhode Island Forget-Me-Not Gallery.

I’ll start by saying — THANK YOU to everyone who came out to support me and the Samaritans of RI Forget-Me-Not Gallery by attending the opening reception! After making lots of check-lists and crossing of to-do’s on my lists, it was when the first guests of the evening walked in the door of the gallery that this whole event became real. Continue reading
Probably one of the best culminating moments in the process of preparing for my solo art exhibition is the feeling of finally having all the art hanging on the walls for the first time.
But before that happens, this… Continue reading
