I was at Wantagh Public Library last Saturday – October 26 – for artist Charles E. Fillizola’s exhibit.

I was invited to Charlie’s exhibit by his fellow artist friend Dan Christoffel, whom I’ve known for about a decade.  Dan and I met when I was a student LIU Post.

Here is what I saw:

I was inspired to buy prints of a pair of Charlie’s works: “Cedarmere,” a pastel; and “Lady Luck, Perkins Cove,” which is pen and ink.

This is “Cedarmere,” as it was displayed:

“Lady Luck, Perkins Cove”:

As the exhibit wrapped up, I asked Charlie and Dan for a picture:

I’m so glad I accepted Dan’s invitation to Charlie’s exhibit.  I saw some magnificent works that I won’t soon forget.
