Smithtown Alumni Art Shows

Over the February break I had a chance to check out Smithtown alumn Andrew Brischler's work at Maurizio Cattelan's new Family Business Gallery. Andrew has three paintings included in the "The Virgins Show" which was curated by my former painting professor Marilyn Minter. It was so cool to see the work of a former student in a Chelsea show and I was excited to hear that he has his first solo show on the way, amazing!

Another former student, Jess Brett, who recently spoke to our AP Art class has a show opening Thursday at 7pm this week as well in Toast Coffeehouse in Port Jefferson. Jess recently graduated from the Hartford Art School and the show, which will run throughout March, will showcase some of her new work.
