The opening reception for the current exhibit, “New Paintings: Art Ballelli and Roy St. C. Rossow” at CCRI’s Flanagan Gallery was held tonight. There was a good turn out of people. Near the closing of the ceremony, Art Ballelli and I gave a brief talk to a small crowd then answered some questions. This was the first time for me speaking to a moderate crowd of people since student teaching last May. I think if I’d known about it prior I would have been a bit nervous. But everything was great and I felt it was well received because there was a good amount of questions asked. The exhibit will be up till the 6th of February.
