For the past three years, Mark has been splitting his time between health care marketing and painting. On September 20, his work will be shown in a one-man show at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach.  He’ll be teaching an Art History course at the Armory Art Center about how American artists made New York City the art capitol of the world, taking the mantel from Paris at mid- 2oth Century.  The exhibit, “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” presents a recent series of large scale portraits of prominent contemporary and historical figures.  The exhibit runs from September 13 through October 19th.

At Temple Judea, Mark will speak about the contribution by Jewish artists to the development of art in the 19th and 20th Century, with the common thread of tikkun olam-repairing the world. Like other fields, including medicine, music, literature, banking, Jews have led the way in fine art.
