Weekend Trip to the Big City

Last weekend my husband and I headed off to New York City to see the Akua Ink "Pushing The Limits" exhibition at the Central Booking Gallery. It was the last day of the exhibition but as they say, "Better late than never". The show looked great and I was pleased to have my piece on display.

There were a number of familiar printmakers with work in the show; Susan Rostow, Dan Weldon, Melanie Yazzie and Catherine Kernan, to name a few.

We stopped in to Forget Me Not for lunch; a great little restaurant run by artists.

We stayed over night in The Hotel on Rivington. where the views from a corner room, on the sixteenth floor, were fabulous!

After spending the day popping in an out of galleries, we found a great little Italian restaurant where we sat outside, enjoyed a great meal and watched life in the "big city" pass by.

Monday morning, in the pouring rain, we headed back to Grand Central for the train ride home.

All in all it was a great little trip and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing my work on display in a New York gallery.
