New gallery, new art opening!  Hundreds of local art enthusiasts turned out on March 3, 2018 for the grand opening, when Paragon Framing and Art opened their doors for business for the first time.

I have two paintings in this fabulous show, which runs March 3 through April 30, 2018.  (*Hint: When you get to the bottom of this page, you'll find a Facebook Live video of the event)

Located at 175 Bridge Street, Paragon is on the main thoroughfare in downtown Phoenixville, PA, a trendy area filled with fun little shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, most one-of-a-kind.

It is always great to see the work of and spend time with artist friends who you admire.  You'll want to check out the work of this gang. From left to right:

Carla Schaeffer, creates mosaic art from found objects,
Michael Riley-Hill, paints architecture and nature in oils and
Lynnette Shelley, paints animals in mixed media.

There are soooo many more gifted artists in this must-see show!

The model for Paragon's co-owner Kenzie De's painting was in attendance and happy to show her tattoo next to the one in the cool oyster painting.

The celebratory cutting of the cake was a joyous occasion!  As cake is my very favorite guilty pleasure food, I can attest that this creation by Brooklyn Girl Bakery was some of the best!  I had two pieces.  Don't tell!
