Students and clients were engrossed in their artwork as Shonda and Marissa led them step-by-step, verbally and through demonstration.

An Artist’s Perspective

i Jun 5th No Comments by

Artwork by two of our own artists, NSSA client Brian M, and past consultation student Andrew D, is currently on display at the “Perspective” art exhibition and fundraiser at the Art League of Long Island, presented by the Kiwanis Divisions of Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Andrew has several photographs in the exhibit and Brian has examples of his original artwork.

This week Brian was interviewed at the gallery for a Verizon/Fios news segment called “Heroes on Our Island,” which will air July 15 at 8pm. He spoke eloquently and passionately about his art – both what inspires him and where he hopes his art will take him. He even started a new project while being filmed – we can’t wait to see this one hanging on the walls of NSSA soon!
