New England School of Art & Design Professor Lydia Martin showed her oil painting, “La Estrella: Portrait of Jemima Pierre,” at the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club member’s exhibition at the Broome Street Gallery in SoHo, New York City.

The portrait is part of a series of works Martin is creating based on the Mexican children’s card game, Loteria.

On hand for the reception was Martin’s former student and Suffolk alumna Jemima Pierre, who posed for the painting holding the La Estrella card.
