Hello my lovelies.
Remember when I said I will be showcasing my work at an all women art installation? No!?
Well, ok, I’m telling you now.
You are all formally invited to present your beautiful souls at The All Alpha Female Experience. I will be presenting new pieces alongside other talented women. And what better way to celebrate women’s month, than by supporting women!
The gallery is located at 1009 Broadway, Brooklyn NY 11221, and is closest to the M, J & Z lines on the Myrtle, Broadway stop. The show will start at 8pm and run until 1 in the morning. So no excuses!
There’s a small $10 fee at entry, which is suffice for the free wine and appetizers you’ll be able to gulp down.
I can’t wait to meet you all.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to visit the Facebook page for the event or contact me below and I’ll be happy to answer any questions.

This temporary pop up installment has social media going nuts, how could I resist?
Their motto “Turn emotion into art” is definitely applied, especially since they focus so much on the smell sense. Which came into play later at the gift shop where candles were being sold. Scents of each room to remind you the emotion you’re supposed to feel.
Chris and I waited an hour on the line, something I hate doing, especially in the cold. It was fucking brick that night. I could tell Chris was getting cranky on the line and just wanted to leave, and he sucked it up for me, knowing that I wanted to go in. awwwww, thanks ♥
By the time you finally get inside, you go in with a small group and there’s a host to describe instructions. You’re handed a flash card that’s reflective, and it starts to make sense why as soon as you enter the room.
The next room which was probably my favorite was “Joy”. You’re handed 3D glasses and there’s green led lights hanging all over the ceiling. In the center of all the madness of lights is a green token that resembles the plumbob from the Sims games. When you get close an aroma of fir takes over. This room was more like “what if I was tripping on acid right now” which was pretty dope.
The whole experience was pretty cool and pretty quick for the long wait, at the end you kind of get the whole take on the essence bit, and realize it was all just a giant advertisement for Glade.
If you would like to visit the Museum of Feelings, the installment is open until December 15th 2015 and it’s located on 230 Vessey Street, New York, NY 10080

It’s been a little while since I’ve done anything fun, or at least considered a bit of fun…who am I kidding, I enjoy myself all the time. What should be saying is it’s been a while since I’ve attended an art show or any gallery for that matter. Something I’ve always loved to do. Not only do I get to see stunning new works, I get to network. Being in the art scene is having your own little community. Everyone basically knows each other, and if you don’t you know someone who knows someone.
That was pretty much what happened when I walked into the little tiny gallery on Broadway. Show:Artistance.
I’ve been here before, but I could tell it was under new management. It used to have old wooden panels on the walls, straight up old school, and now it has been transformed into an all white open space. I like. I drag Chris along with me, or should I say he invited himself along to what would have been a solo date for myself, mainly because I know he was feeling guilty about a little argument we had. Something that never really lasts too long anyway. I said fine, come and join me… Isn’t it great when somebody hits you up, and you actually have a life of your own and are not dreading on silly behaviors of others? Moving on.
We walk inside and start on left hand side, since the space is small we could see everything in a matter of a few minutes. Like usual I go through every piece and stare for a bit. I always like getting a bit closer to admire the brushstrokes. It makes me think of the actual process the artist took to achieve the final product of the painting.
We bump into a style that looks fairly familiar, and I tell Chris, “this looks like the same artist that Matt (Chris’s brother) has in his room, the Bob Marley piece”. Chris looks at me says “Nah” I was pretty sure of it, especially because the signature looked so familiar, it was an “M” with certain swirl to it, I tell him ” Text Matt a pic of the piece and we’ll find out right now.”
Next thing you know the artist comes up behind us, and recognizes Chris right away, I have never met her before, and she starts talking about her piece, and Chris is just laughing, surprised at how small the world is, and shocked at me that I even realized the connection between the two paintings. Sometimes you just know.
Before our arrival, I text my aunt Scarla, I know she lives around the neighborhood and she’s always willing to discover new surroundings and appreciate the creative lifestyles. I ask her to join us, and a few moments later she arrives at the scene. As usual I’m always happy to see her. She parked right in front of the gallery and a friendly stranger comes up to her right away warning her that she’s about to get a ticket. Scarla has always been a smooth talker, she was already given the ticket but the cop tells her don’t worry about it and rips it up. I need to learn that gift of gab, like yesterday!
The night was young, we had a couple of beers and headed to the 2nd show: Art Star.
I swear, finding a parked with a few beers in your system is always funny. The cold didn’t help much but after walking the wrong direction for a few blocks, you smarten up and realize there’s no time trying to be cute outside in the freezing cold. Especially since Chris boycotts coats.
The night was young and we arrived at the second show: Art Star. We didn’t stay much, but I bumped into Marcus Allen, a fellow artist I have met a couple of times now. Super talented, you guys have seen his work on a previous post HERE. After the festivities, we headed to a little hipster bar that was playing spanish music, I had about 2 glasses of wine which was pretty damn good.
Check out a quick video of our night..warning, you may want to lower your volume.

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been to an art show, May to be exact (see that post HERE). It may not seem that far to you guys, but when your favorite past time involves networking with fellow artist friends, 4 months seems like a long time. I usually end up meeting with long time friend Phil, which is always great and we end up catching up on each other’s lives.
Street art has always caught my eye (especially since I come from a graffiti background) and Clarence Rich happened to do it just right. “The Bride” which is Frankenstein’s wife (above) was one of my favorite canvas works that happened to be there. She was posted right next to her hubby (which I failed to show you guys, sorry). Sourdzo and brother killed it on the stage, while Phil and I decided to hit a few books, that weren’t necessarily black. You know me, drawing boobs everywhere.
Goodnight, good vibes.
