UPDATE – Sept. 8, 2019: 1st PLACE! – That’s what my Buzz Aldrin portrait won in The Art Guild’s “About Face: The Portrait” exhibit! To say I’m honored & thrilled is an understatement.
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 The Art Guild’s most popular exhibit ever.
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.
- NOTE: As is my practice with any exhibit I’m in, info on judge appears in post only after opening reception.
Juror ROBERT SILVERMAN, a member of the Portrait Society of America, has been honored in its Members Competition, and his techniques have been featured in its publication The Art of the Portrait, and in the American Artist Workshop Magazine. Silverman has conducted classes and workshops in the tri-state area, including at The Art Guild.
