ANNOUNCEMENT: My painting Indian Summer will be available in an upcoming fundraiser for Riverkeeper.

A significant portion of the proceeds from this sale will help support the work Riverkeeper does to protect the Hudson River.

Indian Summer is one of my largest, most detailed paintings and tells an important story. The nuclear power plant Indian Point, has been a source of controversy due to its safety issues and proximity to major populations and is now slated to close in 2021. The conversation has turned to its future, the continued threat to safety, and the possible reuse of the property. Many are not aware of the property’s past life as an amusement park, at one point the park drew as many as 15,000 visitors a day, on summer weekends. My work attempts to combine the past, present and future and evoke amusement park advertisements from a time when amusement parks were a huge draw in this area. The painting is oil on wood and measures 104” x 62”, including frame.

Here are details about the upcoming sale.

The painting will be on view at the Barthelmes & Barthelmes Studio, at 901 South Street, Peekskill, NY 10566.

I will hold an opening on Saturday, October 19th, from 1-4pm.

It will also be available for visits by appointment, please email: andrew@abcreativeworks.com or call 914-874-4938 to schedule a visit.

A second opening will be on November 9th, from 1-4pm at Barthelmes & Barthelmes Studio.

You can place a bid at any time until 4pm on November 9th.

Please help to spread the word! Thanks so much and I hope I'll see you at the opening on October 19th.
