New York Isn't Dead
Hi friends! After a bit of a pandemic-induced hiatus, I'm so excited to announce that some of my artworks will be included in an in-person exhibit happening this Sunday, July 25th in Long Island City at LIC Bar from 12 - 4 pm.
Six of my artworks from a new series, Excelsior, will be on display and available for purchase. This series of artworks was produced in NYC in the middle of the COVID-19 lockdown. In the midst of so much uncertainty and darkness, I found inspiration in the brightly lit windows of New York City - little stars of hope in the darkness. Employing watercolor, ink, and acrylic paint, I channeled my anxiety into meditative mark-making, reflecting on hope and life rather than despair.
The exhibition, New York Isn't Dead will be featuring artworks from local artists celebrating the city that we love. There will also be NYC inspired-merchandise available for sale. A portion of the proceeds will go to supporting NYC COVID recovery as well as mental health programs. I'm so excited and grateful to be a part of this exhibition!
