The venerable Suburban Art League (SAL)exhibits in numerous locations throughout the year. The current exhibit is at the Barnes Gallery at 2 Nassau Blvd., Garden City, NY 11539. The show runs from October 3 thru October 31, 2017. The paintings are mostly representational and realistic, but not all. Mine isn’t, nor a handful of the others. My painting Zip-a-dee-do-dah is in this exhibition. I liked the placement. The gallery is part of the huge store front, which is a frame shop, a gallery and also has an art studio with classes for using pastels and watercolor paints. The owner Greg and his wife are great advocates for local artists. The reception was sophisticated and a musician performed live music. Great venue. I recommend you stop by and check out the show. The president of the Suburban art league, Anthony La Marca was there, and we met for the first time. He is proactive for the membership and always spreading news of workshops, demos, exhibitions. Great guy. Phyllis Coniglio, the membership person for the National American Pen Women had a lovely piece in the show and is an active member. It was good to see her again, she brings the party with her, wherever she goes.
The phone number for the Barnes Gallery: 516-538-4503. Gallery hours are Tues. -Saturday, from 10 am – 5 pm.
