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.

POSTCARD: "Her Story Through Art" Invitational Show at Huntington Arts Council. Opening Reception Friday, March 3, 2017, from 6 - 8 PM. Artists: ANAHAI DeCANIO, ANN PARRY, TARA LEALE PORTER, IRENE VITALE.

“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.

RECEPTION – MARCH 3, 2017 – Friday’s Opening Reception was special for so many reasons – most notably because guests experienced four such distinct approaches to women expressing themselves through art. And the cutest reason the night was special for me was that my grandchildren, who are one-and-a-half and almost five years old, were there, along with their mom, dad, and Aunt Laurie.

Other much-appreciated visitors included friends and fellow photographers from Long Island Center of Photography; plus, several people featured in my photos came with their families.

TAKE DOWN DAY – MARCH 27, 2017 – When Bob and I arrived on “Take Down Day” after the show ended, Irene’s and Anahai’s art was already gone, and Tara was spackling where she had removed hooks from wall. Later, when I took a break from wrapping my canvases, Tara showed me how plants were sprouting in her sculpture terrarium.

Seeing the beginning of this new life  –  what a lovely way to end “Her Story Through Art.”
