Philip shares his favorite antique shops in town with me. Don’t worry…I’ll share with you, too!
Born in South Carolina, Frank graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of North Carolina and subsequently received his MFA from there as well. His artistic talent garnered him numerous awards and grants, including an individual artist grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Frank was selected for the Whitney Biennial in 1975 and caught the attention of Dorothy Miller, Curator Emeritus of the Museum of Modern Art. She was known to have a legendary eye for new talent.
Frank’s work is held in various museums and noted private collections, such as those by Nelson and David Rockefeller.

I need to grab my NYC girls next time I head North and follow this path! I've been wanting to do it forever. I finally made it to Millbrook, but Easter is not a shopping day.

Sigh…. I wish I was there with you in that incredible home….. That one sliver of a wall had all my favorite components: plaster, curtains, old bullseye mirror, and two great paintings….. That is a perfect little area….
i had to revisit this post. I think it is one of my favourite houses i've seen in a long time, really speaks to me. funny, i have the same favourite image of the trio of paintings/ mirror that i did back in july. that image still grabs me.!!!!
