On Thursday, September 12, 5 – 7 pm, please join me for the opening of “Sharon Butler: Dense Surveillance,” a solo show at the Fine Art Gallery at Westchester Community College that will be on view through November 24. In a large, quirky space, the exhibition includes new work as well as paintings and drawings from the past several years. A couple of events related to the exhibition are in the planning stages, so look for more details about those in the near.
