Creative Mischief Opening

Now it's a painting, 2014, Canvas, linen, muslin, cardboard, pins, oil, glue, dimensions variable.

Thursday night the pop up exhibition Creative Mischief  opened at the National Academy School & Museum. With so many different backgrounds, ages, and nationalities represented, it made for a great show with diverse art ranging from traditional portraiture and abstract paintings to video installations and large-scale sculptures.  The show was curated by the school's Director Maurizio Pellegrin, who has a contemporary vision for the school and pushes us all to go further than we imagined.  I know a year ago I never thought I'd go beyond painting and create a minimal, yet complex installation.

I feel very lucky to have been a part of Creative Mischief and to have my work displayed in the museum.  It's times like these that I am thankful to be in New York and have the opportunity to attend such a historic institution with a forward-thinking mindset.  Did I mention it's on 5th Avenue across from the Park and next to the Guggenheim?  Pretty neat.  Hope you enjoy these photos of the exhibition and opening.  The show is open until Sunday, May 18th, 9am - 8pm.

If you see any artworks you like, let me know and I can put you in touch with the artist.  ;)
