In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

Painting chosen for "Bound," an Exhibition at Phoenix Gallery, NYC

"Corinthian White," shaped acrylic canvas on board, was chosen for the show "Bound" at Phoenix Gallery (210 11th Ave. at 25th St.)  in NYC by Cora Rosevear, Curator of Painting and Sculpture at MOMA.  The exhibition  runs from January 30 to February 23, with the opening reception on February 16, 6-9.  The covered objects evoke a mystery and suggestion of something hidden.  I am dealing with the questions "What is a painting?" and "How can I use paint in a minimal way, but with expression?"
