November/December 2019 - As far as exhibitions, I'm happy to be finishing out the year in this cool group show called Art & AIDS: Alegria at the main LeslieLohman Museum space down on Wooster/Grand street! The curators have chosen three portaits I've done recently... it's a show of artists involved with GMHC, and although it's about HIV & AIDS, it focuses on the aspect of "celebrating life" (Alegria). The show is already up and will be on display until Jan. 5, 2020. The opening reception will be next tuesday, 12/3, from 6-8, please come! Click on the image for further info.
