NIADA Conference 2014

Art Shows, Other Artists work

 

I just came back from attending my first Niada conference. I have been checking out their work for few years, but I’ve never thought of actually going to a conference before. They are very particular with the kind of doll artists that they let join their group and since I like to work in a really unconventional style, I didn’t think that I would fit in. After working in the Bronx Artists Documentary Project, I actually met a member named Reina Mia Brill. She knew that I made dolls and she thought it would be a good idea if we both went down together. We had a blast! I really enjoyed myself because it was my first time being surrounded by so many doll artists and it was a great opportunity to actually see the work in person. The pieces were very impressive, it really inspired me to go home and start creating some new pieces.  I have my hands tied at the moment and have to crank some work out for a different show. When I get done with my current pieces, I am going to have a field day!

Let Us Weather the Storm Together

Other Artists work


Today I went to check out Sheri Debow’s new solo show in New York called “Let Us Weather The Storm Together”. It was at the Metropolitan National Bank in midtown of all places, her sister works there and likes to have unconventional shows for her customers. This was the first time that I’ve ever been to one of Sheri’s solo shows and all I can say is wow. It was like walking into a dolly heaven being surrounded by all of her little twisty creations. The facial expressions, clothing and accompanying paintings were just amazing. It was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I love how she carries her style through every platform whether its painting or sculpting.
