Award winner, 1976
Teenager Karen Kirshner with her pen & ink drawing (surreal bowl of fruit) with award ribbon from the Firehouse Gallery, Nassau Community College, Garden City, NY

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.
