All paths lead to ART

Happy October, everyone!  It’s still pretty summery here in NJ but definitely getting cooler and some of the leaves are starting to turn…a beautiful time of year (+ there’s Halloween!!).  Hopefully some of you remember my recent post about a new gallery in Metuchen, NJ called Nails in the Wall (located in St. Luke’s Church)and the 1st art opening with the exhibit called One Stream/ Many Wells.  The reception was a huge success with a great turnout of people, delicious food, nice wines, live music and, of course, amazing artwork from artist from across the US & abroad!

I’m thrilled to have my photo, Enlightenment, included in this show!  It’s a 35mm B&W photo I took of a Buddha statue while I was visiting the spiritual Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY.  I digitally colored and enhanced the print and it’s become one of my top selling images and is also reproduced as greeting cards and t-shirts!

I was so impressed with this new gallery space and the people who organized it!  If you’re in the Metuchen area, I urge you to check out this show, which runs for 3 months.  The diversity of the artwork is amazing yet it all centers around different forms of spirituality and religion but in an open-minded, universal way.

Here’s a short video shot during the opening reception…enjoy!
