Of the Mind: Art Show at Casa Colombo

2014 Jersey City Artists Studio Tour and Of the Mind Art Show at Casa Colombo

Man, I peek at the dates on my latest blog entries and can't believe my eyes. Ouch! Has it really been so long? Time flies! And busy is not an excuse, but I had to get it out of my system.

But, hey, I'm here now, blogging again. And that's because I am excited to let you know that I just finished putting up my artwork yesterday, at Casa Colombo gallery. Casa Colombo will be part of this year's Jersey City Artist Studio Tour (so, yes, make sure you stop by this weekend). Casa Colombo will also host my art show, Of the Mind, opening on October 25th.

So, if you happen to be in town, stop by and check it out. I plan on stopping by the gallery this Saturday evening, and I'll definitely be there this Sunday, 10/19, 2 to 6 PM, signing books--Journeys Through Darkness: A Biography, and other books.

Home for the Italian Educational and Cultural Center, Casa Colombo is located at 380 Monmouth Street, in Jersey City. Check it out at www.casacolombo.org.

Part of the show, there are a few vampire-inspired images (it's October after all) and also photographs of vampires in New York City.

Hope too see you there!

PS: A few thoughts on the 2014 Jersey City Artists Studio Tour and Casa Colombo being part of the tour

I was at Casa Colombo on Sunday, 10/19, the last day of the JCAST. I am happy to say that a lot of people stopped by. Many of them asked me about the artwork, and many of them wanted to chat about my photography...something I appreciate very very much.  I also appreciate Henry W. for stopping by the gallery with his camera, and taking a few pictures of me, in front of my artwork. You can imagine my surprise when I saw an email from him, with a few pictures attached, and a link to the Meetup NY Walks blog that mentioned the event. I'd like to take the opportunity to thank him again.

Also hope to see Henry, and you all at Casa Colombo this Saturday, October 25th, at 6 PM, for the opening of our OF THE MIND show.

Hope you will be able to make it!

Many thanks!
