MY UPCOMING SHOWS THIS FALL, 2022

THE 5TH AVE ART STROLL
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24th from 12-8pm.
 I'm hosting the 5th Ave Art Stroll on 5th Ave in Park Slope, Brooklyn, between 1st and 3rd Streets for the fourth time. COME EARLY AND STAY LATE! We have about 30 artists/craftspeople and a great line-up of musicians who will be playing a variety of music genres all day long. I started this event during the pandemic when all the other street fairs were cancelled, and it's been a success every time. It's starting to feel like this could be a Park Slope tradition.

THE GRAND BAZAAR NYC
100 West 77th Street on Columbus Ave, NYC. I'll be selling here on SEPTEMBER 18th and SEPTEMBER 25th from 10-5pm. This Sunday market is the largest indoor/outdoor antique/vintage/art/craft market on the Upper West Side in Manhattan. I did this show last spring and it's more interesting and popular than ever before.

ART ON THE AVENUE
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1st, 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.

THE HOBOKEN ART AND MUSIC FAIR
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 2nd, 11-6pm.
This festival seems more lively and better than ever with over 300 artists, craftspeople, food, and two stages with live music all day. It takes place on Washington Street, the main thoroughfare in Hoboken, New Jersey. I don't know my exact location, so if you can't find me, please call or text me at (917) 855-6564.

BETHESDA ROW ARTS FESTIVAL
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 8th,

11-6pm and
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9th,

10-5pm. Space #E31.
This is my first time participating in this art fair, which consistently ranks in the top 30 fine art shows in the USA. I'm looking forward.
The event is in Bethesda, Maryland on Woodmont Ave, Bethesda Ave, and Elm St.

EASTERN MARKET
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, Oct 29th-30th, 10-5pm.

7th St SE, Capitol Hill, Washington, DC.
I've been selling at this market since 1992 and I never get tired of this place. It seems my attachment to Eastern Market only gets stronger over the years.

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.

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.

There are four images using this technique; two ostriches, a dog, and an elephant. After I print each silkscreen, I hand paint them which gives each one a completely different look. These are priced between $100-$125.
