Subway Reader

For anyone in Manhattan today or tomorrow: Be sure to stop by Anthony Santella's booth at the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit. His display of paintings, drawings and sculptures is on the western side of University Place just north of 9th St.

Anthony is a longtime friend going way back to the Newman Club at NYU days. In addition to being an artist in several mediums, he holds a Ph.D. in computer science from Rutgers.

Yesterday, I purchased a print of this oil on canvas painting by Anthony:

It's called "Subway Reader." That station looks a lot like the 4-5-6 stop at 14th St./Union Square. (Although, that station is always crowded -- never barren like this.)

An aside: Anthony is the secretary of SIAC -- that's the French acronym for the International Association of Christian Artists.
