Art Southampton 2015
Last month, Gary and I took off for a week and headed to the beautiful Hamptons! I was exhibiting my photographs with Galerie Mark Hachem/Paris along with Alexander Calder, René Magritte, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol! How incredible is that! I was in such great company! I was also excited that two of my photographs were selected by Art Miami/Art Southampton to represent Art Southampton 2015 in all their print and online media, throughout the world!

Jackson Pollock’s Studio Floor
Before the trip, I went on to airbnb and booked a room in a charming house in East Hampton. Gary and I both love adventure, and part of that was not knowing exactly where in East Hampton the house was until we actually arrived there. We were so happy to find out that the house where we were staying was in the hamlet of Springs! It was just five minutes from the Jackson Pollock/Lee Krasner house! Whenever we are in the Hamptons, we always love going there as it is so inspiring. We had such an incredible trip exhibiting at Art Southampton, hanging out with Mark Hachem & his wonderful daughter, Lea, eating breakfast at Springs General Store and just wandering around the Hamptons! Oh and did I leave out eating the most delicious soft shell crab sandwich at a little outdoor café on the way to Montauk! Pure Heaven!
July, a Wonderful Month for Exhibitions!

I went upstairs on the wonderful terrace of the Pelican Grand and took this photograph of the hotel’s shadow in the sand below.
STINSON BEACH GALLERY, STINSON BEACH, CALIFORNIA
My Dreamscapes Photographs are also being exhibited at the Stinson Beach Gallery, Stinson Beach, California in an exhibition entitled “Speaking in Dreams” curated by Georgia Gibbs. Love the title for the exhibition! So happy to be a part of it and in this charming gallery. Some years ago, Gary and I had our studios in San Francisco and, on weekends, we would take off for this wonderful beach town. I have great memories shooting on Stinson Beach. It is only about 23 miles from San Francisco!. If you are in or about San Francisco, please check out the gallery. The exhibition is there through August 29th.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST, ROAD TRIP TO ST. PETERSBURG, TOWN OF OKEECHOBEE
Several weeks ago, Gary, Bengi the dog, and I took off for St. Petersburg. On the way, we drove through this little Americana town that felt like we were back in the 50s. For one block long, there were these wonderful murals painted on the store fronts, I took out my camera and photographed Gary walking along the storefronts. I put the image on facebook and was happy when a friend, Wendy Blazier , Independent Curator & Art Historian, commented. Wendy told me exactly what town we were in and the artist who designed and painted the murals. We were in the town of Okeechobee and the murals were designed and painted by Joseph Steiert in 2012.
Here is the photo of Gary. I end this blog with the wonderful twitter comment from Georgia Gibbs about the photo “Gary is the perfect compliment – the walking base note! He better be careful or they will keep him!”
Until next time!
