South Bay Art Association Members Exhibition


The South Bay Art Association opened its 53rd annual Members Exhibition at the Phoenix Fine Arts Gallery in Bellport NY. The event is the first in a series of a variety of artistic venues in what is being called the Bellport Art Series.

Chris’ Batik,  of the American Flag, won a 2nd place ribbon


Last Night was the opening reception and it features 140 pieces from 38 artists. Awards were given to the best art in numerous categories and I received a 2nd place ribbon for my 22×15 watercolor painting titled “Stick Docks”.



I was excited to have my art chosen as one of the outstanding paintings in the watercolor division but I was thrilled to see my friends with brightly colored ribbons on their paintings also.

Jeanne. 3rd place – watercolor


How honored I am to be included among the talented group of artists who were awarded ribbons from this half a century old association. I joined SBAA so I could advance my skills and meet other artists. How lucky I am to have achieved both in the few short years that I have been a member.

I encourage anyone who paints or creates art to find an association, become a member and volunteer in any capacity you can. You will quickly feel a camaraderie with the other artists and have  many opportunity to show your painting not only in your local area but anywhere you chose within the art community. You will also be exposed to many levels of classes for both beginners as well as advanced artists. Who knows, maybe we’ll meet at one of these exhibitions or workshops.
