My New York Moment
Updated: Nov 3, 2019
... yep, as I said.
Here's what happened. I was browsing LinkedIn one day, scroll up and down, stumble upon a posting of a lady I had connected with a few months ago who posts truly interesting drawings of more or less known architects. Now, there was this announcement:
"Are you an architect with a secret, or not-so-secret, life as an artist? The New York City collective Art By Architects opens their annual exhibit 09/12 at Church of the Heavenly Rest, and is accepting works through 08/15. Message @ArtbyArchitects on Instagram, or leave a note here, for details."
Opting for the note, I sent her a quick message saying yes, I'm an architect, I make art and I'm interested - provided it's not open just to New York architects. Not at all! - she replied. And she put me in touch with the Chair of the Selection Committee. With two days only until deadline, I sent him three of my drawings and he wrote back the following day saying... "You're in!"
Now, imagine that. An exhibition on Fifth Avenue, no more, no less. And a fine excuse to visit New York again, of course. ;)
It was lovely, lovely! A couple of friends who live in New York dropped by that night. I met a lot of interesting professionals and the works were incredibly diverse in themes and techniques. I can only post as many, there were about ninety of them!! Get a taste in the following pics and enjoy!
Does it show... the show was good?
