Press release for John O'Keefe's solo exhibition at the Picture Framer & Gallery in Cheshire, Connecticut in September 2008
As printed in the Cheshire Herald on August 28, 2008


We held the reception despite a visit by tropical storm Hanna. Even though the poor weather discouraged most from attending the exhibit reception, we had a good group. Jennifer and I learned later that during the event our local county was under a tornado warning. Still... people came to see the artworks, and I had the opportunity to talk with them about my paintings. We had refreshments and good conversation. I was delighted with my first solo exhibit.

Eleven works were exhibited at 'The Picture Framer & Gallery' throughout September. Because some of these paintings had been previously sold and one was on exhibition at the Mystic Art Center, I have a mix of originals and reproductions being displayed. The quality of the reproductions is so good that several visitors made comments that they could not tell the difference between the originals and the reproductions.
