It will be an honor showing in this Friday's opening of the Illustrators 53
Advertising and Institutional Categories. I wish that I could make it to the opening but living on the opposite coast makes it difficult. These 2 selected pieces were created through an invitation from Erica Heimberg, the director of the Sea Turtle Restoration Project
to participate in an art exhibit and benefit to help restore habitat destroyed by the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill
. Erica had seen my work after I posted several personal pieces
in response to the spill after I had read that BP was burning surface oil in which endangered Sea Turtles were trapped and burned alive, just writing this makes me so angry and upset! The Sea Turtle Restoration Project is a fabulous organization that continues remarkable worldwide conservation efforts for our sea creature friends through public support.
A huge thanks goes to judges, Oksana Badrak, Marcos Chin, Fanny Gotschall, Ethel Kessler, Gail Morowitz, Bill Mayer, Adam McCauley, Tim O’Brien and Felix Sockwell for selecting my work and big appreciation to SI's Anelle Miller and Kate Feirtag for all of the hard work putting these exhibits together.
