Just in time for Valentine's day, Mort Künstler will be signing his newest print Sally's Valentine in Oyster Bay. This beautiful painting is a depiction of an actual event – the presentation of the first recorded American valentine. British officer Lt. Col. John Graves Simcoe fell for Sally Townsend, the daughter of a Patriot, while occupying her home which is now Raynham Hall Museum. Mort's signing will be just a block from where this event took place, at Long Island Picture Frame and Art Gallery.
Sally's Valentine and other prints by Mort will be available for purchase on site, in a selection of sizes – framed and unframed. We hope you can join us for this special event!
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Raynham Hall Museum.
