Summer brings a particularly exciting time for exhibitions. There are a variety of group exhibition that will showcase my paintings– both in the United States and Italy. I am thrilled to share the information with you, and I have arranged the events by cities.
This exhibition features artwork from the 22 artists that participated over a 2-year period in the 22 Mad for Naples Project. Each artist spent 2 weeks in Napoli and some artists also participated in a side trip to Pollena Trocchia, located in the Vesuvius region. The artwork created while in Italy will be showcased at the historic Castel dell’Ovo, located in Napoli and the Gulf of Naples. The exhibition takes place from July 21- July 28, 2016.
Here are links to press articles that have appeared in Italy:
Below are two paintings that I created while in Napoli and will be on exhibition at Castel dell’Ovo:
In addition to the exhibition, a celebratory dinner and fireworks will take place at the Villa dei Marchesi Cappella, Pollena Trocchia, pictured above.

As part of the ongoing traveling exhibition, The Art of Influence: Breaking Criminal Traditions, the Human Rights Institute Gallery at Kean University will showcase the artwork of nineteen invited artists. I am honored to have three paintings that will be shown, including my painting of Malala (featured below).
The Art of Influence: Breaking Criminal Traditions (BCT) fine art initiative is dedicated to raising awareness as the first step toward ending gun deaths, honor killing, acid attacks, bride burnings, violence against gender minorities and more.
The exhibited art establishes an intimacy between a viewer and an artist’s work. Educational programming will be an important part of the exhibition.

Reception: Tuesday, October 4th from 5-8 pm. The College Hour, Pre-Reception Programming with Cheryl Jefferson, will begin at 3:30.
