This Saturday August 2nd come and support the Arts in The Bronx. I'll have three pieces in this fundraiser exhibition. Hope to see you all there!
The Bronx Art Space (BAS) is pleased to announce “Access To Art” an annual fundraiser, showcasing a spectacular range of artwork from artists in the New York City tri-state area August 2-16, 2014.
BronxArtSpace believes that fine art should be accessible to everyone, and will kick off the event with an opening reception on August 2, 2014 at 5:30-8:30. All are welcome.
What makes this “secret gem” of an art show unlike any other in New York City is the combination of refined, sophisticated, high quality fine art at prices that are truly affordable. Now New Yorkers who want to support local artists, can afford it. “Access to Art” reaches out to professional and accomplished artists to offer work well under $1,000 with several pieces from distinguished and early career artists plus small works from $10 on up.
Celebrate the Bronx's 100th anniversary with three pedestrian Sundays on the Grand Concourse between 165th and 167th Streets.
The center lanes will be closed to cars and open to a world of fun, with free music, activities and programs hosted by art/cultural, civic, health organizations and artists.
I will have a table with new stuff inside The Bronx Museum this next Sunday, August 3rd, and I will also be volunteering teaching an art workshop outside... so COME AND ENJOY!!!
Last Friday I went to my friend's apartment. We ate, I made sangria, and she wanted me to draw something in her empty walls. She saw a sketch I just finished and said that was what she wanted.
So I opened my sharpies and started drawing.
I love making art. I think it's one of the things that gives me strength and keeps me calm. In my darkest and shiniest moments I feel better just scribbling on a coaster. This time I had a whole wall.
Thank you Skye. You are awesome.

Last Saturday I had the honor to participate with three of my pieces in the Art For Autism Fundraiser at El Fogon, All proceeds will go to Autism Speaks and Parents Of Autistic Children, two great organizations.
Here you see some of the people who came to support, the group of artist that donated their pieces, and on the right, the little lady that got my artwork during the fundraiser and her with the artwork already hanged up in her room.
It was an amazing experience for all of us!
Thanks Ed Alvarez for the pictures!
