Thursday night was just that kind of night at the Rome Art and Community Center, 308 West Bloomfield Street, Rome, NY to share my series. The venue alone is absolutely beautiful, an old stone mansion turned into a most elegant gallery and community center. By the looks of the gated yard, it must be beautiful in the spring.
Now on to the next event within this exhibition. The Rome Art and Community Center has extended a special night March 18th in which they will be open for a special presentation from 6-8pm of "A Military Experience - A Parent's Perspective". I have invited the North Syracuse VFW, the Marine Corp League of Syracuse and several public officials, Senator Chuck Schumer, Congressman Dan Maffei, NY Senator John DeFransico, NY Assemblyman Bill Magnarelli and Rome's Mayor Joseph Fusco.
The show will be up until the 5th of April. Rome Art and Community Center has hours M-Th 10-5 and Fr 10-2. Winter hours are closed on the weekends. If you can come to the event on March 18th, you will get the presentation from me with their stories. It takes about 45 minutes to an hour to get through all the paintings and I promise there will be times that you may tear up (that's ok because I do too). There is a reality in what you see and hear. Each painting has deep meaning with a variety of topics and I chose many mediums such as Oil, Pastel, Acrylics Drawing Mediums and Mixed Media.
