I’m thrilled to be one of four artists in Huntington Arts Council’s “Her Story Through Art” Invitational Show! The Opening Reception – Friday, March 3, 2017, from 6-8 pm – is free and open to the public.

“Her Story Through Art” Invitational Show, at Huntington Arts Council, March 2017. Artists: Anahai DeCanio, Ann Parry, Tara Leale Porter, Irene Vitale. My photo of actress Kelli Vonshay Henderson was captured during LIIFE 2016 Awards Ceremony at Bellmore Movies.

Since the exhibit celebrates Women’s History Month, I selected pieces from my portrait and news photography that focus on females of all ages – with emphasis on women passionately involved in civics and politics, the arts, and volunteering.

Fellow artists ANAHI DeCANIO, TARA LEALE PORTER, and IRENE VITALE are also showcased in this exhibit. It’s fun preparing for the exhibit with them, and I’m looking forward to seeing their work in person.

Friday’s Opening Reception was special for so many reasons, and the cutest one was that my grandchildren, who are one-and-a-half and almost five years old, were there with their mom, dad, and Aunt Laurie.

Other much-appreciated visitors included friends and fellow photographers from LICP; plus, several people featured in my photos came with their families. So exciting!

Three world-renowned street artists  – Sonic Bad, MasPaz & Phetus – each used their own distinctive styles to collaborate on metamorphosing the back walls of the Huntington Arts Council into a vibrant vast work of art, during SPARKBOOM’s “Off the Walls” art Block Party, on August 24, 2013.

Visitors experienced this graffiti happening, four bands,  performance artist Steven Zaluski in his rolling metal sculpture “Sphere of Hope,” and more. SPARKBOOM Long Island art events showcase talent, present aspiring artists, and give artists opportunities to network.

Plus, that night, visitors at the council’s Main Street Petite Gallery viewed the 12 winning posters for its “Post No Bills” public art contest.
