Armory Art Center Presents An Exhibition Of Work By Charles Parness:” I Yi I”

For over 30 years, long before the advent of smart phones and the popularity of the selfie, NYC painter Charles Parness has been exclusively painting self-portraits. Various works by Parness will be exhibited at the Armory Art Center from November 7 through November 28. On the surface these works appear to be in the tradition of Rembrandt but upon closer inspection have a decidedly post-modern feel.  The Rickie Report urges you to see these 100 images during this exhibit!
