Congratulations to Steve Zazenski whose watercolor North Jersey Nocturne has been accepted by the American Watercolor Society into their 147th Annual International Exhibition happening at the Salmagundi Club in New York City. The show runs from April 1 - 20.
This is Steve's second acceptance into the annual exhibition. This second acceptance makes him eligible to become a member of the prestigious Salmagundi Club. Founded in 1871, the Salmagundi Club is one of the oldest art organizations in the US. Its membership has included some of the most important names in American art. Today the club builds on this legacy by providing a center for the resurgence of representational art in America.
Our gallery always has a good selection of Steve's work. He will also be a featured artist during Doylestown Art Days happening early this June.
