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.

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.

I looked at the signatures and made out “C. Fillizola.” Yes, Charlie Fillizola caricatured me and my sister back in September 1995, 18 years and one month before this exhibit. I photographed both caricatures with my iPhone since they were too big to scan, converted them to grayscale, and removed the backgrounds so all that remained were white and black ink. Here’s my caricature:
