The Nor’Easter annual juried exhibition is the New Britain Museum of American Art’s opportunity to expose contemporary visual arts to a wide audience. This prominent showcase in the Northeast region highlights the exceptional work of emerging and established artists in all media.

I’m honored to have my portrait of Riki included alongside such an amazing group of work. A very special thank you to jurist Christina Tafuri for the selection and of course, to Riki for her exceeding generosity in posing.
