Heidi Alamanda in Chelsea, New York City Show at Bowery Gallery

I am so honored that my painting, "Painted Images in Her Mind," was selected as part of the 23rd anual juried show currently ongoing at the Bowery Gallery in Chelsea NYC. The group show features the work of 36 artists selected by juror David Cohen., a current editor and publisher of can view all the selected artworks on the Bowery Gallery's facebook or on their website 

We went to New York City to attend the opening reception. It is always a happy thing for me to get out from my studio and visit the city, and it is even a better reason to visit when I actually have the opportunity to share my work with a lot of people :)

I met some other exhibited artists, Bernice Sokol Kramer, Rachel Youens, Rachele Unter, Tom Fitzharris, Meredith Rose, Eli Slaydon, and Françoise Cambilargiu. I was glad I had a chance to view their works in person to appreciate that special quality which you just couldn't get by staring at photos. There were many works there that really pleased my eyes.
Françoise and I got a chance to talk for a bit. Her oil painting entitled, Sardegna 1, was one of  my personal favorites. The painting really captured the feelings of the artist and transported you to a beautiful place (photos really don't do it justice). Françoise is going to return to Paris soon, so I was glad to be able to know her before that.
Coincidentally, she introduced me to another artist, Eli Slaydon, which his work, Pathfork, was also another favorite of mine.

The turn out was really great. The gallery was packed the whole time I was there. My huge thank you to all kind people at Bowery Gallery for organizing such a great show.

I also can't say thank you enough to my DH for his never ending support, especially that night for taking me there and being there for me.

The show will be on exhibit through August 16th, 2014.
Bowery Gallery is located at 530 West 25th St. 4 Fl, New York, NY 10001
