I am very pleased that my painting, “Survivor,” was selected for the 101st Annual Juried Exhibition of the Greenwich Art Society. It takes place at the Bendheim Gallery, 299 Greenwich Avenue, Greenwich CT.
This piece is based on a photo of a man with AIDS. Struck by his combination of strength and vulnerability, I portray him coming out of the darkness into the light, overcoming struggle. He looks straight at the viewer, defying us to ignore him.
The exhibit was judged by Randall R. Griffey, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It runs from March 9- April 13, 2018 with a public reception on Friday, March 16 from 6:30- 8:00 pm.
