POPES!

In September I had wonderful month in Italy with my family and I now paint Popes. Yes, it's true. I was inspired by so many things there: the Vatican Museum, the gorgeous churches, the beautifully crafted Renaissance art that is everywhere, the new and incredibly down-to-earth Pope Francis, the Italian lifestyle, and, of course, the tomatoes. My experience there has somehow brought me to this pursuit of painting real and fictitious Popes.

HERE IS WHERE I'LL BE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON:

MY ANNUAL HOLIDAY STUDIO SALE

Saturday and Sunday, Dec 6-7th, 12-7pm. This will take place at my studio/storefront/shop at 285 5th Ave. bet 1st and 2nd Streets. Good deals and free Ostriches prints with every purchase. My well known Hot Apple Cider (spiked or not) will be served all day.

DOWNTOWN HOLIDAY MARKET at Washington DC's National Portrait Gallery

I am participating in this Market which takes place in front of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery on F Street between 7th and 9th Streets N.W., Washington, DC. Friday, Dec 12th through Tuesday, Dec 23rd, 2014, 12-8pm every day. This really is an exceptional market with live music all day. Hope to see you there. Here is the website for more information.

HERE IS WHERE YOU CAN SEE AND BUY MY ARTWORK:

IN BROOKLYN, NY;

My studio/storefront at 285 5th Ave, Park Slope, Brooklyn is the only place in the world where my artwork is always available. I have a sign in my window that states, "I'm open by appointment and by luck." Basically I'm open when I'm in my studio.

I still sell my work at art festivals and street fairs but I've been opting out of selling on the streets of Manhattan. I hate knowing that many people are trying to find me in Union Square or in Soho every weekend.

So spread the word, if you're in New York City and want to see and/or buy my artwork, please make a trip to Park Slope, Brooklyn and visit me at my storefront/studio/shop on 5th Ave, which has become one of the most happening streets in Brooklyn. It's a small space but it's where I've been making art for the last 13 years.

If you're in New York City and would like to see where the magic happens and check out everything I have available, I recommend making an appointment for a studio visit. I'm doing my best to have storefront hours on the weekends so please call or text me for times (917) 855-6564. Each weekend is different.

IN WASHINGTON DC;

I have a representative, Dino Almaguer, selling for me at Eastern Market, which is one of my favorite places in the country. It's a food/art/craft/antique/flea market located at 7th St, S.E. on Capitol Hill in Washington DC. Dino will be selling for me most Saturdays and Sundays (weather permitting). Contact him directly at (240) 419-4151 or at gessogood@yahoo.com. I do my best to keep him supplied with great work. About 6-8 times a year, I visit DC and make cameo appearances at Eastern Market and a variety of art/craft shows which will always be listed on my website.

Sign up here to be on my email list. (I only send about 4 notices a year)
