"Twenty Twenty Over, 21"
Finding Hope in a Tumultuous Year Though it may be cliché to note at this point in the year, 2020 has been a wild—and at times, demoralizing—roller coaster ride. Between a global pandemic and a national election that grabbed our attention for all the wrong reasons, finding glimmers of positivity can be a difficult ask but we are always optimistic in the art world.

Wine Tasting and Hors D'oeuvres
Jim grew up in Bayonne NJ in the 50’s and 60’s. Bayonne in those days, to him, were parks, movie theaters and ice cream trucks. When he was 20, New York City held all the perfume. And in the mid 70’s the city was fertile with creatives. The Soho restaurants were humming with the like minded and that’s where he found himself working.
Those days, his main devotion was music. He played and wrote and played and wrote. He was friendly with an advertising guy that was a regular at the restaurant. He asked him if he would be interested in performing in a series of commercials. After his commercial career Jim took a great interest in play wrighting Broadway shows. He wrote, produced and directed 12 plays in a 20 year period and, one, as recent as last year, had it’s world premiere at The NY Fringe Festival.
But always a painter at heart his wife and he stumbled upon a little CT bungalow that had a detached painting studio. They bought the house and since than he has devoted a great deal of his time to painting and drawing. The result of what he has created we present to you on May 3rd 2018 (6-9pm) at Gallery 104 in TriBeCa.
