Three of my Black Chemise paintings have been invited to the upcoming exhibit Love Shack at the Nave Gallery Annex.  Black Chemise # 2 above, along with # 3 and # 8 will be in the show.  I am excited to be included with the other artists and have the work reviewed by Bill Kouwenhoven*

Love Shack is:
sex and love and romance,
red roses, chocolates and ballads,
monogamy, turst and broken hearts

The show opens Friday, February 14 - March 1, 2014 with a reception on Valentine's Day 2/14 from 6-8 PM.  Please join me for the reception at the Nave Gallery Annex, 53 Chester Street, Somerville, MA!
