My painting, "Scene from Queens Are Made from Distance and Greasepaint," (after a photograph by Thomas Palmer) was accepted for the 2016 Members' Exhibition at the Newport Art Museum. The featured dancers of Newport's Island Moving Company are: Lauren Difede, Brook DeFancesco, Tara Gragg, Katie Moorhead and Christine Sandorfi.
