HERE I AM SHOWING Alice's Aura at my very first museum exhibit. It was the Spring Juried Art Exhibit at the Museum of Art of Ft. Lauderdale AN Academy of Art and Design. It was curated by their director and lead curator, Bonnie Clearwater. The staff at the museum told me that Ms. Clearwater thought my art was a cross between Alice Neel and Frida Kahlo.
They placed Alice in a premier location in the gallery, directly in the center of the window looking out onto the street. Not only did it look out on the street, but it looked across it to where the paintings of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera were showing at the museum's main exhibit. I felt thrilled and humbled at the same time to be showing in such proximity to these great artists. I hope some of their greatness rubbed off on me!
Even if it didn't, I was proud to be there!
