More shows--i.e., more chances to see my work!

  Running the line.Running the line.   Peaceful mooring.Peaceful mooring.


As mentioned in an earlier post, this is my busiest time of the year for shows, exhibits, and craft fairs.

Indeed, within the next two weeks my work will be part of or featured at a total of four venues!  

Now there is no excuse for anyone to miss my work--it seems to be everywhere!  

So where, specifically, is it, you ask?  I thought you would never ask-----

1) The Toms River Branch of the Ocean County Library will have two of my works, "5...4...3...2...," and "Peaceful Sunset" as part of the annual Toms River Artists Community (TRAC) show.  It is on the second floor of the library and it features great work by a number of talent TRAC members.  The show runs until the end of the month and is available to view during regular library hours.  The library is on Washington street in downtown Toms River.

2) The Ocean County Artists Guild Annual Juried Member's Show.  This features the work of Guild members in several categories, including watercolor, oils and photography.  The show starts this week (the day after Labor Day) and runs until the end of the month. The opening reception is Sunday, September 18th and I plan to be there. The Guild is located in Island Heights and is opening every day except Mondays. My work "Abandoned Stairs" will be vying for a prize.  Wish me luck!!

3) Sailfest 2016, on River Avenue in Island Heights.  This is an all-day street fair on Saturday, September 10th, and it features a variety of items from clothing, accessories, household collectables, comestibles, yard art, classic old cars, and art, of course.  I will be there with my canopy and banner sign (saying Frank Parisi Photography), starting at about 7 am to 8 pm.  I will have an assortment of items for sale, including cards, small and medium sized matted photographs, and a few framed photographs. If you see me, please stop by and say hello!

4) "Cuba: Waiting and Working," will be at the Watchung Arts Center in Watchung, New Jersey, starting next Sunday, September 11th at 1 pm. The show is being curated by my teacher, the noted photographer Nancy Ori and it features the work of 14 of her students who accompanied her to Cuba during the last two years.  It features works in black and white, and in color, and it shows the life and living conditions of people on that colorful and controversial Caribbean island. The show has my pieces entitled "Curing tobacco" and "Santeria Priestess," both in color.  The show runs until September 30th.

Whew!  That's certainly enough for one month! I think everyone will find at least one piece to their liking at one of these shows.  If not, I have a few more exhibit opportunities in the planning stages that I will be discussing in future posts.  Until then....Ciao!
