June 2016

I'm happy to be on the Host Committee of the "Fourth Annual Founders Gala" of The Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art, and to have donated a Silkscreen Print for the Live and Silent Auction. It's Thursday, June 9th at the Museum on 26 Wooster St from 6:30-9PM. 

I did the print this past year and it's called "Sam Devries, Brush Drawing Silkscreen", based on a life drawing I did of Sam at the Leslie-Lohman Erotic Drawing Studio. It's in a frame approx. 21" by 17" and bidding starts at $200. with $25 bid increments.

The Event features a performance by the creative genius John Kelly, and tickets can be purchased at the Leslie-Lohman site, click on the Image above to be linked.  You can also be linked to bid on the print online, until the day of the event.

Please come check it out, and if you can, support the Museum!!

January 2016

January 29, 30, & 31, 2016 - Mark your calendars!  For many years I have participated in the terrific benefit for the organization Visual AIDS called, "Postcards From The Edge".  I missed it last year, but I got a really nice one done for this year's Event, which will be at the Sikkema, Jenkins & Co. Gallery (530 West 22nd St) at the end of the month.  Artists donate an artwork done on a postcard, they sign the back only, & people only know for sure who did it after they purchase it.  The Opening night (Friday the 29th) there are no sales, it is just to scope out the available works and socialize, ($50. entry fee unless you donated an artwork).  Then, Saturday morning people line up to be the first to purchase the artworks for $85. each., doors open 10 AM.  Sales go through Sunday at 4PM, & then continue online afterwords at  Come check it out & support this great organization!
