NEW YORK, NEW YORK! An artists dream comes true!
What an excellent and exciting day! At the 19th of October we crossed over by ferry from New Jersey to freezing cold New York , an adventure in itself! My husband nicely helped me to transport 16 (!) paintings and 12 frames- you cannot imagine what a large suitcase we carried around ( besides the other 4 large ones on our flight from Spain to New York). I had put down a wish this year in May in the Artist 2 Life CVP 19 program, which I attended. My wish was to present my art in New York! Not long after doing this, I was contacted by a representative of the gallery! Life takes wonderful paths sometimes!
All the paintings were accepted but then I kept 4 and Ieft 12 of the 30×30 cm series at SAPHIRA&VENTURA GALLERY in central Manhatten. Can you imagine, I was standing in that gallery, a dream becoming true and did not manage to separate from all of my paintings! Somehow they became my kids.
Great surprise gave me the gallery: 4 of my paintings were presented the same evening in the show ”The bonds of love” and I could be present at the opening which was well visited and even added a wonderful performance of which you here see only the mask! The exhibition is to be seen till 28th of October.What a story! My paintings will be presented in several shows over the year 2020! Super exciting!
PS If you would like to know about the Internet program of Art2life CVP19 let me know! I did enjoy it very much and it inspired my art enormously!
If you are interested in my paintings , now in New York, here are some of them (more you will find here Small formats – kleine Formate – pequeños formatos)
