One of my favorite things is attending art openings, especially if I’m one of the exhibiting artists. Add a little champagne to the mix, and the evening is perfect. Unfortunately, I was out-of-town for this opening so no champagne for me :(. However, an artist friend of mine, Marjorie Van Cura, also had work in the show. She snapped some photos of the event to share with me. “Circle Invasion”, the long blue painting happily sold two days before the opening. That’s worth toasting with champagne! The exhibition continues through August 31 so drop by Madelyn Jordon Fine Art Gallery at 37 Popham Rd, Scarsdale, New York (open Tuesday-Saturday) to view some interesting contemporary art at excellent prices.
I recently delivered a painting to the Madelyn Jordon Fine Art Gallery for inclusion in their “Summer Remix” group exhibition that opened last week. As luck would have it, I ran into a friend who wanted to buy it two days before the opening. They displayed the painting at the opening anyway but with the coveted red dot on the information label. For those who don’t know, when a painting sells in a gallery/exhibition, the curator/sales staff will paste a little red dot on the painting’s information label to show that it has already been sold. I LOVE when I see the red dot on a painting of mine as it means that it has found a good home.
Luckily, the gallery owner ask me to bring up a different painting to exchange out with the sold painting. I’ve got my fingers crossed for another red dot! The new painting depicts a magically mist that mysteriously dissipates to show a colorful bower just waiting to be explored.
