I am so pleased to share that I was recently selected as the winner of the 2019 Alexander Rutsch Award for Painting. This is a bi-annual juried competition, open to U.S. artists, hosted by the Pelham Art Center in Westchester County, New York. You may read more about this year’s competition and the work and philosophy of artist Alexander Rutsch here.

Along with a cash prize, the award includes a solo exhibition at the Pelham Art Center from May 3rd to June 22nd. I will be in New York for the opening on Friday, May 3rd. The reception and award presentation will run from 6:00 to 8:00 pm that evening. I will also be back in Pelham on Saturday, June 15th to give an Artist Talk from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. Both events are free and open to the public.

To reach the Pelham Art Center from New York City, take the Stamford Local train from Grand Central Station. Pelham is the 4th stop, about 28 minutes from Grand Central. The Art Center is located at 155 Fifth Avenue in Pelham, an easy, three-block walk from the train station.

I would love to see you on May 3rd, June 15th, or both!
