This exhibit would have been at the main headquarters in NYC but due to covid, the exhibit is online only. Works can be purchased and viewed at NAWA.

Grand Visions: We Are Here
Grand Central Library, NYPL

Group Show. March 1st - September 2020
This exhibit was held from March 1st to the end of September 2020. It was originally going to end in May, but due to Covid all public buildings were closed indefinitely. I was actually worried I would perhaps not see my painting again. After the pandemic subsided in NYC, my painting was returned.
You can still check out all works on line at the NAWA website.
"Seasons of Wither" won an honorable Mention at this show. There were a total of 4 awards.
