You are cordially invited to:
kNOWing: Recent Works from Coronado Print Studio (2016)
180 East 118 Street 3rd Floor
New York, NY
Saturday, November 19, 2016
5:30 to 8 p.m.
The works represent an awareness of the power of image to engage and inform conversations about identity, self-discovery and personal histories. With skilled techniques and in collaboration the artists encourage each other and the viewer to take a journey of consciousness, challenging notions of reality and dystopia. It made me reflect on the philosophical question: Is kNOWing half the battle?

BxArt Factory will be celebrating Women History Month with their Art Exhibition: Innuendos: The Voices of 10 Bronxite Women
I will be presenting the piece "I'm every woman" It's a reflection of what we are taught, what we accept, what we overcome and what we aspire to be. We all struggle with our bodies, our insecurities, our fears, and we have to learn from the experiences we live, trying not to make the same mistake twice.
We know that the issues that still affect women today are topics that must be talked about often but we hope that with this exhibition we continue the conversation and bring awareness to the community. Innuendos opens at the Andrew Freedman Home (1125 Grand Concourse) on Friday, March 6th and runs through April 1st!
There will be an opening reception on the 6th but there is also have some great programming:
