How do you describe success?

Karen Ann Hitt: Being enabled the opportunity to fully utilize aesthetic abilities in an environment allowing for growth and the continual development of its potential. Two beloved quotes: “I am still learning” spoken at 87 and “The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.” – Michelangelo

I am honored that the Hughes Gallery, beginning its 22nd season, is hosting my solo exhibit that opens 28 March 2022. They are located at 333 Park Ave. Boca Grande, Florida (across from The Temp) 941.964.4273
