I love my agent, Rachel Orr. Come see us for a panel discussion at the Rutgers University Council on Children's Literature, this Saturday, October 15th, 2016. The theme is "Tough Love: An Agent's Role in Today's Market." But really, working with Rachel feels like anything but tough love.
My watercolor, "Moment Before Opening," has been juried into the Salmagundi Non Members show. This painting also won the "Bernice & Albert B. Cohen Family Trust Award for Excellence in Light and Shadow" in the 2016 New England Watercolor Society's Signature Member Art Show. It also won first place and the "Domenic DiStefano Memorial Award" at the annual "Works on Paper" show at the Philadelphia Sketch Club. The painting will be featured on the postcard for the next "Works on Paper" exhibition in 2017.
I continue to teach art classes at the Arts Council of Princeton. I've also become the program coordinator for ArtsExchange, and the outreach program coordinator. Basically, I'm at ACP a lot. And I love it.
