Canvas Event at Brooklyn Lyceum

Me with my friend Jerry Wagoner in front of my work. Yes it was cold.
I participated in an event on Saturday January 19th. It was a one day long event that included visual art, Music, Circus stuff, burlesque, etc. The event was held in the Brooklyn Lyceum a converted bath house near the Gowanus on 4th Ave in Brooklyn. I had four painting in it, and I think I have already written about them them in earlier posts. The theme of the work that I showed was revolutionary war in Brooklyn. The cool part for me was the site of the Lyceum is build over the old battlefield of 1776. I think it was also appropriate that a painting dedicated to the Maryland soldiers, that lie buried somewhere nearby, also won "best in show".
A cool panorama taken with photosynth app. It shows the back and side walls of the space.

Another photosynth panorama of my work hung in the corner of the second floor.

Looking up from the main floor.
Three of the smaller paintings that I showed. "Terminal Moraine" "Exodus from Brooklyn", "Red Hook".
"Red Hook"
"Maryland Willow of the Gowanus". Best in show.
