Exhibition this Friday

Muse by Tanya Torres
 Acrylic on canvas with bindi and gold colored foil edge, 2012.

I'm participating in this exhibition that opens this Friday. The idea is that each artist will create artwork of any kind measuring 10" x 10" and that it will also be highly affordable for any normal person that comes to see the show and likes a piece. So I am letting you know ahead of time that I took this idea very seriously and created this Muse in a similar technique as the paintings on tile, which will be available for $100. You may contact Omo Misha at Arts Horizons LeRoy Neiman Art Center, 212.862.2787

Les Reves Femmes Agenda and Breaking Ground

I was so excited when I opened a package from France and found my work published in the lunar agenda 2013 by Rêve de FemmesIt includes 3 of my artworks, but my favorite is that they chose Mary Magdalene of the Burning Heart for the month of July as in July 21, day of St. Mary Magdalene. I must have looked like a little kid opening my Christmas gift! It is so beautiful I am afraid to touch it!

The same week I received the book Breaking Ground.

This is the work of Myrna Nieves, who worked in this anthology of women writers in New York for the last 10 years. It includes a magnificent number of written pieces by women who have lived in New York for more than 10 years and developed their career as writers in the city. I am honored be published among some of the finest writers in New York. Published by Editorial Campana, the anthology is available at La Casa Azul Bookstore and Amazon.com, among many other places.

My heart is as burning as that of the Mary Magdalene, and I am very, extremely grateful for these wonderful gifts of life!

Art Bag

Goddess Bag
I've been wanting to make a batch of "art bags" for a couple of years. The time has come! This is my favorite so far! In preparation for the Comité Noviembre Art and Crafts Fair, Nov. 17, 2012, beginning at 11 a.m. at Hostos Community College. My favorite event of the year!

The drawing. Might come up again somewhere else...
