New York City

Exhibiting in NYC was exhilarating and stimulating, in equal measures. The Parallax Art Fair was an eclectic and interesting mix of art work and artists. A refreshing art fair originating in London that encourages the visitors to "be themselves" and relax into the works being exhibited. Dialogue between the artists and the viewers is encouraged and becomes an integral part of the whole event.

The fair was extremely well attended and I sold a couple of small pieces to a group of delightful women visiting NYC from Turkey. I was most fortunate to have my youngest daughter helping me to unpack and hang the show. We later braved the stifling heat of the city and went out to explore the High Line Park and the MOMA.

It was a joy to share the experience with Georgia. She discovered and connected with  Boccini's "Dynamism of a Soccer Player" in the MOMA.

And the Monet "Water Lilies" room that always sings its delightful song of colors and texture to me, no matter how many times I see it.

We stumbled onto the works of Alighiero Boetti: Game Plan and thoroughly enjoyed discovering his obsessive and diverse work.
Order & Disorder

Georgia treated me to lunch at the MOMA and I was served this exquisitely beautiful bowl of watermelon and tomato gazpacho, a jewel like mandala of color.
