2 Thursdays in a row

Firstly but briefly, two of my drawings were accepted for Viridian’s 19th international juried show in Chelsea judged by Elisabeth Sussman, Curator at the Whitney. There is a reception on Thursday, July 10th from 5-8pm and all are welcome. So drop by! 530 West 25th Street #407. Map.

A shout out to the energetic Farhana Akhter who founded Global Fusion and organizes monthly Global Fusion Arts events in Manhattan bringing together musicians, poets and visual artists. I participated on July 3rd at Global Fusion’s event at Spark in Chelsea showing some of my paintings and was fortunate to meet several talented artists.

Thanks, Farhana! As Tania Sen said, Dawoud’s sitar playing held the evening together. Roopa Singh wrote some poems in situ that she shared with us. Watch out for Global Fusion the first Thursday of every month. Here are web links (if I could find them) to the artists who participated. Check them out, everyone has very different work ranging from C Bangs’ fascinating in-depth NASA work to Scott Munroe’s pencil strange modern biomorphic formations via surrealism (Veru Narula) and yogic images (Tania Sen).
