MY UPCOMING SHOWS THIS FALL, 2022

I'll be selling at EASTERN MARKET on SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, Oct 29th-30th, 10-5pm. This dynamic market is on 7th St SE in Capitol Hill, Washington, DC. I've been selling at this market since 1992 and I never get tired of this place.

ART ON THE AVENUE
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12th, 10-6pm.
This festival takes place on Mt Vernon Ave in Del Ray, Alexandria, VA. Who would have guessed that this small-town, folksy, pie-making, community street fair would become one of the best art shows in the country? Not me. My booth number is E39 between Windsor and Howell.

 

 MY ANNUAL STUDIO/STOREFRONT SALE WILL BE ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3, 12-8pm at my space at 285 5th Ave (between 1st and 2nd St) in Park Slope, Brooklyn. This will be the only day I'll be selling in NYC in December.

THE DOWNTOWN HOLIDAY MARKET AT THE SMITHSONIAN NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY on
F Street between 7th and 9th Streets N.W., Washington, DC. I'll be back for 18 consecutive days, from TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6th through FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23rd. If you are in the DC area, check out this big, enchanting, always changing art and craft market.

ART ON THE AVENUE has been rescheduled to
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12th, 10-6pm and I'LL BE THERE. This festival takes place on Mt Vernon Ave in Del Ray, Alexandria, VA. My booth number will still be E39 between Windsor and Howell. The original date was October 1st but because of bad weather from Hurricane Ian, it was postponed. I never want to miss this small-town, folksy community street festival.

MY 22nd ANNUAL STUDIO/STOREFRONT SALE WILL BE ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3rd, 12-8pm at my space at 285 5th Ave (between 1st and 2nd St) in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Yep, it's true, I've been renting the same 250 square foot storefront for over 22 years. This will be the only day I'll be selling in NYC in December.

And last but not least, I'll be selling again at THE DOWNTOWN HOLIDAY MARKET in front of THE SMITHSONIAN NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY. This enchanting art and craft market takes place on F Street between 7th and 9th Streets N.W., Washington, DC.
I'll be here for 18 consecutive days, from TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6th through FRIDAY, DECEMBER 23rd, 12-8pm every day.

Download for FREE "The Tabard Inn Haggadah" that I put together using parts of other Haggadot I've admired over the years. It's illustrated by me as well. Enjoy and feel free to add other interpretations or commentaries which will make it more relevant to you. I've always thought that for a meaningful Passover Seder, a Haggadah should be seen as a work in progress.
