"Breaking Bread" Opens this Sunday!

After two years of painting dinner parties in his studio, Frank is unveiling a compelling and extensive new series.  It is about coming together and having a meal with your friends or family; eating, drinking, conversing. It's what we do when we are "breaking bread."

The Exhibition Opening is Sunday, March 29th, from 3-6:00pm at the Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven, and if you can, you should come see for yourself.... The show runs from March 26 - April 26.
