OPENING ON THURSDAY, JUNE 16, 2022
Honored to be a part of this exhibit at the https://www.armenianmuseum.org celebrating portraits of Joan Agajanian Quinn. I met Joan and her late husband Jack early in my artist journey, they were always extraordinary in their support of artists and instrumental to many of my early opportunities. The mixed media portrait of her that is included in the exhibition was a gift to say thank you for believing in me.
It is precious to meet people who see the potential in you and the artist path has it’s share of challenges. Joan and the Agajanian Quinn family have illuminated this life with the power of love they give to artists and the value they see in art. Thank You.
