2013 MSKCC Patient Art Show and BRIO Award

This past Monday was the opening show of Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s 60th Patient Art Show, where I’ve been displaying samples of my work for the past few years.  This year I displayed two photographs of the Ward’s Island Bridge on canvas.  At the end of Monday’s opening night, neither was sold but I found out from a dear friend that by the end of Wednesday, the last day of the event, both had been sold.  So, this was great!

Later this week, I received an email from the BRIO (Bronx Recognizes Its Own) Awards Panel, which stated that I was not selected to be a 2013 BRIO recipient.  I was very hopeful that I would win one of their $3,000 BRIO awards given annually to selected Bronx-based artists in a variety of mediums.  I had hoped to use the award money to purchase a new camera, the Nikon D800.  At the same time, the recognition of A BRIO would be a fantastic way to get my name out there and make meaningful contacts.  Nevertheless, I will apply again in November when applications for the 2014 award become available.  One can’t give up.
