New Installation! Fragile City: Red Hook, Brooklyn

September 12 – October 17, 481 Van Brunt Street Door 7, Brooklyn, NY 11231

Opening Sunday, September 12, 1 – 6 pm (I will be there from 2 – 5 pm, or let me know if you'd like to attend on another weekend so we can arrange to meet.) 

Gallery Hours: Saturdays and Sundays from 1 - 6 pm

Fragile City: Red Hook, Brooklyn is a site-specific fabric installation I created for “Threads that Bind (when the fabric of social culture unravels)”, an exhibition of contemporary textile art at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC). This newest iteration of the Fragile City series draws attention to climate change in the form of flooding from sea level rise due to rising temperatures, and the risk of more frequent storms.

Located just yards away from the Red Hook Channel, and near the confluence of two rivers with the Atlantic Ocean, the gallery’s building is under constant threat of being flooded.

Important Note: All gallery visitors will be asked for proof of covid vaccination, in accordance with NYC regulations.

Guest Artist at Fitzgerald Art

Works from my Rooted and GROWTH series will be featured at Karen Fitzgerald's Open Studio event on Friday Aug. 6 (12-8:30pm) & Saturday Aug. 7 (11am-8:30pm).

3151 12th Street, Long Island City, NYC (near Socrates Sculpture Park and the Noguchi Museum.

My process of visual intuitive research continues to expand. It is leading me into new forms that resonate with energy exchanges found in nature, mostly underground, such as among tree roots and fungal networks.

The results are new works from the Rooted and GROWTH series, which will be on display and available at a range of price points. Hope you can stop by!

ORD [The Oracle of Real-Estate Development] Appears at 2019 Art in Odd Places: INVISIBLE


On October 19th, from 10 am - 1 pm, on 14th Street and Union Square East in NYC, ORD will appear and invite all questions related to real estate, finding a place to live, development, construction, gentrification, etc.

We'll also perform a reading with some of the day's questions and answers as an impromptu "Oracle Poem" at 12:45 pm.
ORD is appearing as part of the 2019 Art in Odd Places Festival: INVISIBLE curated by Lulu Lolo.

My newly-minted AOC dollar <people-powered through and through> for the Art is Money-Money is Art show at Julia Justo's East Village Art View pays tribute to a very inspiring woman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, my Congressperson.

The East Village Art View is pleased to announce the upcoming show, Art is Money - Money is Art. Edoardo Marcenaro curated anexhibition of artworks made on actual $1 bills.

This exhibition includes works by Banksy, Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Obey, andmore than 100 local artists.

Artists show how fluid the nature of money is, as its very transformationdemonstrates a change in its value when rebuilt as art.

Artists do so as a method to ironize, undermine, sabotage and subvert the powerof money.

Though these re-designed banknotes are mischievous in nature, many pieces offerdistinctive and provocative social criticisms.

This unique exhibition explores concepts of wealth, power, equity, justice andcreativity.

Location: 111 3rd Avenue, #15 H, New York, NY 10003
On view: April 26 - May 11, 2019
Hours: Thursdays and Fridays by appointment

Ever wonder why the local landscape is dominated by construction sites? Whether you can afford a new place if you need to move? What ULURP means and why you should care?

Come ask the Oracle any question you have about real estate, affordability, development, residential and commercial property, displacement, gentrification, and NYC's construction-dominated landscape!

Together we'll compile questions asked with the Oracle's answers to make a collective oracle poem at 4pm. This is a drop-in event - come for part or all!-)

You can also take a self-guided walk/tribute to 5Pointz, the former graffiti mecca of the world, now a construction site for luxury apartments, like much of Long Island City. Instructions and map available.
