Enter a space in which friendship expresses its creative ties. 7 artists, all Sufi, come together under the tent of the Nomadic Gallery, "Open Space", to celebrate Art. The diversity of mediums found in this show, is the strength of its open hearted curation.

Much thanks to all my friends involved: Pipi, Mariam, Yoyo, Aziz, Medina, Cynthia and especially to Mustafa Farhad for his patience and courage in opening us all up to this serendipitous experience.

Hope that you will be present to enjoy this work, and that your Vernal Equinox will usher in a great Spring season...full of Health and Sharing! ... 1 sun

The 9 Flowers of East 4th Street; One-Sun, UP press

In a small, 3.5 in. square accordion book, titled "the Nine Flowers of E 4th Street"; is the silent story of nine different flowers. Each frame is adapted from the nine 7 x 7 in. paintings, that I have since distrubted to maternal forces as a small gesture of appreciation for her brilliant inspiration.

This little book contains my experiences, as a painter/gardener, within the three gardens of East 4th Street between Ave. C and D. This small corner of New York City, during warm wheather magic, brings to life the plethora of blossoms that celebrate the onlookings of East Villagers. I hope that this work will urge all who live in a city to seek out these patches of natural refuge, and find a resource to infuse their city experience with a sense of gentleness.

Dear Friend, I wish for you a happy advent of spring, sowing seeds, and whatching the radiance of life unfold!
