• UPDATE – Sept. 8, 2019: 1st PLACE – That’s what my Buzz Aldrin portrait won in The Art Guild’s “About Face: The Portrait” exhibit!
I’m honored The Art Guild accepted my portrait of NASA’s Apollo 11 astronaut BUZZ ALDRIN in its juried exhibition “ABOUT FACE: The PortraIt” – on view August 31 through Sept. 29, at Elderfields Preserve in Manhasset:
Based on the number of entries, about 200, from across the country, this is one of The Art Guild’s most popular exhibits.
I captured the portrait of ‘The Real Buzz’ – the second person to walk on the Moon – during his talk at the jetBlue Sky Theater Planetarium in the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City, on October 23, 2015.
