Yesterday was the show at the Bott Shoppe in Mamaroneck, NY. I was happy to see how well my work was displayed, and I met a lot of nice people. Most of the people live or lived in NYC, so in a way, it felt like reunion, as people spoke of their memories of places in the City. Very pleasant.
The Bott Shoppe is owned by Laura Bott. She’s got a great business going there, and if your in the Westchester area, and interested at all, in art, you should check it out. Not only is there a gallery, there are little items based on original art of the Westchester area. In the back, is an art studio for classes and activities for children. For instance, there was a class in drawing superheroes, but in the process, children learn a lot about figure drawing. It’s good art skills, made fun.
Laura convinced me on the importance of having a statement piece, so I will invest money on one very soon. In the meantime, back to making art!
