I am proud to announce that one of my works has been selected to be in the annual Red Dot Show at the League’s 57th St. campus. Each instructor selects student work for the class concours, which is in turn judged by other instructors at the League. The judges award Red Dots for those works deemed “best in show.” The highlights of all the concours can be seen in June in the annual Red Dot Exhibition. Traditionally, several pieces in the Red Dot show are purchased for the League’s Permanent Collection. – The piece selected is “Sloan Valve” (see gallery). Also receiving a nod was my Aboriginal inspired “Oz” which received a Blue Dot representing an Honorable Mention in my instructor Richard Barnet’s class show. Mr. Barnet said that in his 30+ years of teaching at the Art Students League he has never seen anyone get a Red Dot AND a Blue Dot. The show runs from June 1 through June 14, with a reception on June 4. I’ll be the guy with the shit eatin’ grin.
