Friends and Colleagues

If you find yourself in Long Island, stop by and see the portrait entry of artist and fellow CBIG member Laura Goetz. To see more of Laura's work visit her blog at and on CBIG's web site

It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul. For me, Laura has the ability to bring the soul of her subject alive through the eyes. It's subtle, but it hits me every time. There's always a quiet emotion just below the surface in her work whether she paints people or animals. Her subjects breathe.

The Art League of Long Island presents:
A Common Theme: Portraiture

An Exhibition of Portraits and Figures
Exhibition Juror, Burton Silverman
May 20 through June 17, 2012
