More of the Brooklyn State of Mind
"I think that's my favorite piece in the show"
-The lady to my right in the blue shirt. Many others agreed.
Good news: my show in Clinton Hill has been extended through the month of October. It will be open weekends and by appointment through Halloween with a possible additional extension beyond that. The exhibition really looks terrific and apparently the Corcoran Group took notice.
We had a wonderful opening (thanks to everyone who stopped by!) and the weekend hours have seen steady foot traffic. On a personal level, I’m very excited to say that my "Aspirant" piece, (the ceiling one pictured above) sold to a collector in Long Island City. She’s going to try it over her bed, which for me is the ultimate position for those ceiling pieces. I wish I could fall asleep under its protective branches and be greeted by it in the morning!
If you haven’t been yet, stop by and check out the show. We’re having a party for what would have been the closing and it could be even better than the opening. A local Senegalese resto is catering and a bunch of my friends are coming. Trust me: it’s worth the trip!
