From July 4 to July 27, 2019, an exhibit of my collage, paintings, and photographs from my “Japan Series” (see the Japan Series tab here on my website) will be on view at the Jersey Shore at the Great Bay Gallery in Somers Point, NJ (near Longport and Ocean City). This series was inspired by my recently published novel, Gina in the Floating World (She Writes Press 2019), which is set in 1981 Japan. I am particularly excited by this show since it brings together my art and writing interests in a place that is near and dear to me. I have spent time in Somers Point for the past 23 years and visited the wonderful Great Bay Gallery many times.. A reception will be held on Friday, July 19th from 5pm to 7pm. I will do two different presentations/readings—one at 3pm and one at 6pm on Wednesday, July 24th. Books will be available for signing. All artworks are for sale.
