October 30, 2011

It was an honor to exhibit my portrait of Ataturk at the American Turkish Council’s 2011 Annual Conference on U.S.-Turkish Relations in Washington, DC. At this three-day event, political, economic and industry leaders gather to discuss and analyze the evolving relationship between the U.S. and Turkey. The agenda is pragmatic and forward-looking, yet historical and cultural dynamics suffuse the debates.

The photo here shows my husband talking with retired ambassador to Turkey Alan W. Lukens, whom we thoroughly enjoyed meeting at the event.
