25 Year Retrospective - Reception Photos

Last week, the North Hollywood Senior Arts Colony presented the opening reception for my 25 Year Retrospective art show. NoHo SAC is one of the arts colonies created by the non-profit EngAGE, Inc., for which I'm Websites/Social Media Manager as well as an Experience Talks Radio Show producer/host. I'm grateful to EngAGE CEO/Founder Tim Carpenter, EngAGE CAO Nancy Goodhart, and NoHo SAC Program Director Sara Debevec for hosting the show in the beautiful lobby gallery shared by NoHo SAC and the Road Theatre on Magnolia. The evening included delicious food from Porto’s and fine entertainment by keyboardist Rex Perry. In addition to celebrating 25 years of exhibiting art, the event also marked my 10th anniversary of meeting Tim and my affiliation with the Experience Talks Radio Show, and my 70th birthday!

The exhibition runs until March 16, 2018. It’s open during regular business hours and in the evenings prior to theater performances. Call to confirm: NoHo SAC (818) 985-2200, Road Theatre (818) 761-8838. I hope you can stop by!

Mom! Very glad she came to the event.

Such a surprise when Sara presented me with flowers!

Another surprise: kind words from Tim.

Laughing because I was so caught off guard that I
was holding my plate during the entire presentation!

Last year I created a Facebook album to mark my 25th anniversary of making art. This year, I'm pleased to celebrate the 25th anniversary of exhibiting my art. In 1992, I was accepted into my first show, the Southern California Juried Open. Since then, I've shown my work in over 80 juried and invitational shows, plus many Art Walks and fairs. 

Over the years, I've made hand-colored photos, mixed media work, paintings, drawings, installations, and digital art. It's been a very interesting exploration of media and style, one that continues today.

I hope you'll join me at the reception to see this eclectic exhibition!
