Egg Tempera

John J. Newman Medal
60th Annual Exhibition of the National Society of Painters in Casein & Acrylic

This could well be loading dock any town USA. Soon after the artist and his wife got married, she got a job as the receptionist and switchboard operator of a shoe manufacturer in the town where they met and both went to college. Years later, on a visit to the town, the doors of this once thriving business were closed. The age of the building, featuring cracked and deteriorating paint, possesses all of the characteristics indicative of an aging facility and symbolic of our aging infrastructure in general. The rusted sign is the only remnant reminding us of a once bustling manufacturing economy and it seems the only way to reverse the trend is to "Buy American".
