A few nights ago I googled one of my Art Students League colleagues, Amy Koy, and found she’d made this statement: “A painting is not complete until it is seen.” When I was in theatre, I wouldn’t hesitate to say, “Hey, I’m in a play, you have to come see it!” And yet, I’ve left it until the last minute (today) to encourage friends to come see some of my work at the Flatbush Artists salon exhibit in a lovely townhouse at 502 9th Street in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Noon to 6pm today (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday). I would love to see friends there, and I’m also looking forward to seeing what my neighbor artists bring. My ambivalence is probably about the emphasis on selling. For me, it’s about having "the public" see some of the results of what has become a much-cherished part of my life. And the pictures do look better in person, all dressed up in their frames and mats.
