I was very fortunate today to spend a long afternoon into evening doing studio visits with Laura Newman @lauranewman705 and Marcy Rosenblat @o.rosenblat as they firm up exhibition and catalogue plans for their forthcoming two person show at 490 Atlantic Gallery. Their compositional commonalities and points of divergence catalyzed a wealth of great conversation about painting, color, spatiality, materiality and procedural depths, among other things. Poetry and Pasolini came up as well. So did fluted columns and cold fronts. Cameo appearances by some arresting photographs that make you want to draw, draw, draw. As far as my week has gone, today was the first day of spring. Big thanks to both artists. #nycart#brooklynart#painting#studiovisit#lauranewman#marcyrosenblat#490atlanticgallery

Contributed 2 pieces for an art auction for Rohingya. "Hearts4Humanity is a campaign started by MAS Youth which aims to raise funds and awareness for a different struggling country every year. This year, the project is focusing our efforts on the crisis in Rohingya.
Thousands of people across Myanmar (also known as Burma), are displaced, unable to return to their homes. The United Nations estimates that more than 168,000 people have been displaced since inter-community conflict erupted in 2012. Over 500,000 people have sought shelter in Bangladesh since violence erupted in Myanmar in late August 2017, according to the United Nations.
Continued tensions keep many in danger and in need of help. That exacerbates other problems, such as food insecurity: According to the World Food Program, more than 162,000 people are facing food insecurity and another 78,000 people are in need of immediate food assistance. Over 200 Rohingya villages in Rakhine have been set ablaze by Myanmar army soldiers. Afraid for their lives, 200,000 Rohingya are estimated to be hiding in Myanmar jungles. But as the conditions on the ground remain bleak, the number of people who need assistance and the need for more support grows.
Please keep those affected and those working to help them in your prayers.” To donate to the cause online using the following link: https://www.launchgood.com/project/h4h_2018_team_new_york#!/

I can only fit but so much in this Instagram minute! Our March 10th Social Media Marketing Brunch for Entrepreneurs was everything I’d wanted it to be and more! We couldn’t have had a more perfect guest list, the food was amazing, the champagne didn’t disappoint, and most of all, our guests walked away with tips to apply to their businesses. 👌🏾
Special thanks to @kelseybelgrave for being a speaker, and to @nybagelbx, @rustik_tavern, and @barbarasflowers for their contribution to this event.
