Curator Luca Curci interviews me about my art film Pelo Amor de Deus I exhibited in Venice, Italy earlier this year! Thanks Luca Curci 🙂
Hi friends! My Kickstarter campaign for my upcoming artist residency in La Romana, DR has 6 days remaining! Thanks for the support, pledge if you can! Great way to get a piece for a good price and help support my teaching career at the same time. 🙂
So excited to announce that I have been awarded the Altos de Chavon Teaching Residency by the New York Academy of Art! They’re sending me to the Dominican Republic (La Romana) this August where I will get to teach a History of Painting Techniques & Contemporary Art course.
It was a huge honor to have two works selected to be included in this evenings incredible art event, the TriBeca Ball!! The event is always an outstanding fundraiser for my alma mata: The New York Academy of Art. As an alumni, I am honored to be participating, and although I am VERY nervous to go to a red carpet art event ALONE with actual art stars and celebrities surrounding me, I will go proudly and hope I do not fall on my butt while attempting to walk in heels (not my forte).
The work below titled “I Just Woke Up” was selected to hang, and in addition I have a smaller painting in the coinciding alumni pop-up show. See everyone tonight!
My essay on hope and painting are now up on Edelman PR’s blog along with the other winners in their national storytelling contest, Your Storied Future. So exciting and I am very honored that they selected my work to showcase.
Don’t miss the fabulousness that is TriBeCa Ball! The event is next Monday April 8th, 6-9pm at NYAA: 111 Franklin St., New York, NY 10013
All of the proceeds from art sales and ticket sales from this event go towards funding our graduate program, in addition to providing students with scholarships and residencies!
Tickets are still availaible, its an incredible time..I plan to project a brand new video piece in my studio, as well as exhibiting 4 brand new works on paper.
Hope to see some of your faces there!
