The Making of “New Purpose”:
Progress Shots: (more…)
I was honored to be invited to participate in this benefit! So excited to have an entire room full of my “Abandoned Series” at ACA Galleries, where incredible artists from Lee Krasner to Luis Jimenez and Elisa Jimenez have shown. The show looked spectacular!
The evening will feature LES Ecology Center, a local non profit that proudly supports the environment and welcomes the arts.
Our artists you ask? There’s quite the mix. Michael Netter and Colleen Blackard will be hanging, and performing:
Vaughn Bergen + Joel Bluestein
Enjoy an open bar, live music, and chats of changing the world. A portion of ticket sales and art sales will go to LES Ecology Center, and of course any direct donations you’d like to make.
Friday, August 19 at 7 PM – 9 PM
ACA Galleries 529 West 20th Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10011

I was blown away by all the positive feedback I received during Greenpoint Open Studios. The studio was packed from start to finish both days! I barely had time to start my newest drawing, “New Purpose,” but enjoyed the brief moments where I could share my process with the viewers. I even reconnected with visitors who remembered my work from last time in the old studio. “Importance” was a show stopper, as well as “Paths of Memory.” The drawing “Bask” stole the show when it sold on the first day! So glad it’s gone to a great home of another amazing artist. I met the artist Mick Theebs, who asked to take my picture with a statement for his art blog, Also That. (Update: After this, I was September’s featured artist on Also That!)
