This is the painting in the front window for KLKirshner's EPIPHANY solo show, April 3- 28, 2024. A woman from Manhattan wanted to buy it yesterday, but I had been told I could not sell it until the fall, due to an entry in another show. Turns out that is delayed and it could have been sold. People seem to love it.

Eleanor asked him if he remembered having given Karen Kirshner the Award of excellence in 2019, and that he recognized her genius. He said he did. Ms. Kirshner did not forget when he told her that in Abstract art, there are very few original artists, in current times, and that Karen one of the is rare. . Kirshner thinks he’s a rarity, because he’s not only a classical artist with great talent and skill, but he also has knowledge of Abstract Expressionism, having done his thesis on it.

An intellectual property thief? That is ©️Karen Kirshner’s Magical Moment.

One thing the artist hates most is when someone takes a photo of her work, without first asking for her permission. No one is entitled to steal creative imagery and vignettes for their own unauthorized use.
KAREN L KIRSHNER GALLERY VIEWS
Another unfortuate intellectual property theft? A small segment of Kirshner's painting was shot and enlarged by this stranger. Photos should not be permitted in exhibitions, except for promotional purposes.

What will this young man do with the detailed photo he shot and enlarged on his phone? He looks delighted with it.
Hopefully, for his sake he realizes the art is fully copyright protected, and all rights are reserved. I'm glad the photographer for my show caught these guys on camera!

To Karen it is the greatest compliment, because Picasso has always been her favorite artist and Guernica her favorite painting. She had seen the original massive painting in Spain.

It’s the October Art Walk exhibition. KLKirshner's paintings are both right here and in the third gallery she has a brand new painting entitled,
‘The answer to unasked questions’. Often, she's been told, people come in and spend a lot of time staring at, and studying her paintings. Karen's delighted her paintings draw attention, She said," It would be be lovely if, among the many admirers, one would purchase the piece soon, and brighten their home".

Always encouraging her daughter to pursue art and exhibit, Karen's artist mother Betty Kirshner entered Karen's work in the show. It was a pleasant surprise to receive the award in a juried adult exhibition. The Firehouse Gallery director at the time told Betty that Karen wasn't really supposed to be entered, at age 16, and yet she was the exception and permitted to retain the honor.
