Visitors to the show were greeted by an image I took of my daughter at Stonehenge in the summer of 2018. Located on a narrow, scooter-lined crowded street of mostly art galleries, boutique hotels and cafe’s – the most famous of which was the Café La Palette. Galerie Etienne de Causans, located in St. Germain and is about a 15 minute walk to the Louvre and the Notre Dame Cathedral.

Oxford International Art Fair

FEBRUARY 26-28, 2016

The recent exhibition of the Oxford International Art Fair took place on February 26-28 and was attended by over 6,000 visitors and featured the artwork of 150 artists from 26 countries. I consider myself fortunate to have been among this selected group of artists that exhibited at the show. OIAF2016 took place at the Oxford Town Hall which is located in the heart and center of Oxford, England. Upon arrival to the event, one was greeted by a grand staircase with vaulted ceilings, atop of which stood a modern, monolithic style marquee showcasing a list of the exhibiting artists and sponsors. Inside, an array of artwork was on display against a backdrop of Gothic Architecture. This historic setting and the world-class art that was on display all made for a very fun and chic event which was enjoyed by the public, art industry, participants and volunteers. I've always felt that one of the higher purposes of art is to advance culture. To that end, this event certainly made a nice contribution.
