Please join me Thursday evening, June 2, 6-8 pm, to celebrate the opening of Being There – Recent Paintings by Mary K. Connelly and Ella Yang.  The Callahan Center Gallery, St Francis College, 180 Remsen Street, is conveniently located in Brooklyn Heights about a block from Borough Hall.  I’ll have over 20 paintings from the last couple of years, including a number of large paintings that have not had much opportunity to get out of my studio.  Bring your friends and family to enjoy the artwork, share a beverage and snacks, and ask us about our works.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Ella

p.s. for more information about Mary K. Connelly, visit her website.

p.p.s. If you miss the opening, the show runs through June 29. The gallery is open 9 am – 9 pm daily. It might be a good idea to call ahead (718.489.5372) as there are talks and other events occasionally scheduled in the Callahan Center.

There’s no denying that an exhibit makes me focus on what paintings will be in it, and even though I have many paintings, I’ve become newly inspired thanks to the theme of In/Sight=On/Site.  We’ll be showing in the Patrons’ Gallery at the Salmagundi Club, which is fairly small, so I’ve been creating new small, but intense paintings.  Along with the colorful, intimate streetscapes, I’ve become bemused, almost magnetized by the myriad of trucks that are in my studio neighborhood.  I’ll post some of these soon, but here’s a look at my studio with works in progress:

There must have been well over 200 people attending yesterday evening’s reception and award ceremony for the “Contemporary NY Waterways” and “History Panorama” exhibition at the Salmagundi Club. It was one of the swankiest receptions I’ve attended there with a jazz trio, hot appetizers being passed by white-uniformed waiters, not to mention the usual wine and cheese. I got a lot of questions about “Lehigh Valley Barge at Red Hook” (image of it is in an entry below) – where is it docked exactly, how is it used today (it’s now the Waterfront Museum); and a couple of people offered historical information about how barges were an important part of NYC history way back when.  All this in celebration of the Dutch discovery of Manhattan 400 years ago!
