Disney/Ryman An Affair of the Art

I just shipped three paintings that will be part of “An Affair of the Art” Exhibition to benefit Ryman Arts on Saturday, September 20th.  I’m thrilled to be invited to be in the show again this year at the lovely home and garden in the Hollywood Hills,  of Marty Sklar  the retired head of Walt Disney Imagineering.  This years theme is “Under the Big Top,” and will feature a Patron Special Presentation of rare film footage of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus, the years Herbert Ryman sketched and painted when they traveled to small towns through out the  United States.  Including the time when C.B. DeMille studied sites for the Academy Award Winning film, “The Greatest Show on Earth,”  which was filmed in Sarasota, Florida.
