"In the grand total of realism, "Show and Tell,"Agora Gallery (NYC) exhibits the works of three figurative painters who present their subjects as they are... set in everyday surroundings. Cece's "Seabright Summer" captures the spontaneity of a holiday snapshot, with a couple on a sun drenched beach."
