Very excited to be working at El Museo Del Barrio as part of their Back in Five Minutes Artist Residency working on images of the Dominican guerreras of April 1965.
The Museum Mile Festival is tonight and museums are open from 6-9pm . El Museo del Barrio has the Belkis Ayon retrospective and the Uptown exhibit. I will also be there in the AIR studio in Las Galerias with my Mujeres de Abril.
Viewing hours: 8:00 AM- 9:00 PM daily.
Opening Reception for the Hope exhibition which showcases the work of six women artists.
Exhibiting "St.Barbara and the Holy Family", a large format drawing, based on a painting by Veronese. Artists will discuss their works on February 21st.
On exhibit is my Veronese transcription, a large format drawing titled "St.Barbara and the Holy Family".
I am exhibiting four works , three created during my JCAL residency, of the new series "Park Views-The Urban Bucolic" a series of mixed media drawings that celebrate the beauty and (dis)order of our urban parks.
This series includes new works "The Riots" and "There is a Crack in Everything" which document views of the city, one of a park the other a construction site, to depict the beauty in disorder.
On exhibit is my painting "Union Square", a large oil painting that depicts the abstracted beauty of Union Square park and records the old view down Broadway, where the Twin Towers are still visible.
Artist Talk at Hitty's Cafe on Great Cranberry Island, Maine.
This residency will allow me the opportunity to return to the landscape to explore an ongoing preoccupation with the pastoral in art, as an idealized image of place.
Warrior Women Dance, oil on paper, depicts historic African American women of the 20th century.

On exhibit is a large format mixed media drawing "Delirious New York" and a medium size oil painting "Afloat", each dealing with the affective impact of change in urban environments.
"Delirious New York"
Fifteen works, all ink on paper, and inspired by daily walks along Eastern Parkway right before dusk. These images reflect the poetry of the Brooklyn sky.
My residency proposal includes creating additional work for the ongoing "Warrior Women" series as well returning to painting the landscape.
