At the start of 2018 I wrote down some goals for the year. One of those goals was to have a second photo exhibit (my first one was at National Black Theatre at the end of 2016 – early 2017). This goal has been materialized and my current exhibit runs through the entire month of June at Cafe con Libros in Brooklyn. The work includes a selection of 35mm and digital prints transferred to wood. There is a reception on Saturday, June 16th from 6pm – 8pm. If you’re around please come by. [Cafe con Libros is located at 724 Prospect Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11216]
The reception was wonderful and the overall response to the exhibit was outstanding. 13 out of 15 pieces have been SOLD! I am beyond grateful and humbled that people believe and support my vision to the extent that they want my art in their homes! You can check out photos from the reception and the exhibit in full here --> [CLICK ME].

Bernie Sanders crashed his own art opening in Manhattan on Saturday. The touring exhibit "The Art of a Political Revolution: Artists for Bernie Sanders 2016" featured works of art depicting the senator, his policies and his campaign. The senator has been a long time supporter of the arts starting from his days as mayor of Burlington, VT. Watch our video to learn more about the art, artists and movement behind it all.

This exhibition features four artists that work with repurposed materials. Suprina up-cycles materials into figurative pieces that address social injustices. Jeffrey Allen Price and Gabriel J. Shuldiner focus on process and transmutation of materials. Victoria investigates how fundamental changes in fabric can affect one’s perception of his or her identity, and ultimately a nation’s psyche. [Co-curated by Leanna Stella and Akeem Duncan.]

On Saturday, August 1st from 9pm - midnight the Empire State Building featured 5k projection footage of endangered species.
Standing amongst hundreds of onlookers with our heads tilted upwards toward the iconic building there was a special moment shared. In between the 'oohs' and 'aahhs' brought on by the awe and beauty of the live art display there was a sadness. A sadness in the realization that these beautiful images truly represent species that are likely to become extinct. "I used to see monarch butterflies all the time as a child," expressed a lady standing next to me, "and now I don't see them anymore."
"The production was the collaborative effort of the Oceanic Preservation Society and the filmmakers of "Racing Extinction," an upcoming documentary film that highlights humanity's role in the loss of the world's endangered species. Helmed by Louie Psihoyos — the director of "The Cove" — "Racing Extinction" follows a team of activists on a mission to expose the two largest threats to biodiversity — the international wildlife trade and society's growing carbon footprint."

The Studio Museum in Harlem is one of my favorite cultural institutions in the Big Apple. With rotating exhibitions every two - three months it was a pleasure to catch the final day of an exhibit. Target sponsors Studio Museum go-ers every Sunday by offering free admission!! [p.s. my mom has a cameo in the first photo outside of the building :)]
