For the first Uptown Happenings Together (NYC) event we will be visiting, Laura R. Gadson, Harlem based artist and curator in her studio. Ms. Gadson is known for her work in the art of quilting and for coordinating events for fellow artists, and she makes a Harlem brownstone her studio and private gallery.
After a studio open house, and viewing of Laura Gadson's, Shimoda's and others' work, kindly organized with our group in mind.... those who want to do so are welcome to join us for a stroll over to a favorite spot for a drink and further networking :)
[Note: Shimoda is a local Jewelry artist, and Laura and Shimoda both have work currently on display on the 125th Street Culture Banners! Support the artists exhibited, by considering making a purchase to add to your collection!!]
Small print-----> Don't forget to take care of your one-time Uptown Happenings Together (NYC) joining contribution of $5, so you really feel a part of things ;) Also consider making a small contribution to the organizer's collection for the Haiti earthquake Relief Effort, via Oxfam's Haiti Earthquake Response Fund, or make a direct contribution yourself to the fund here.
Uptown Happenings Together (NYC)...... To stay in the neighborhood a little more, to slow down and engage a little more. To know a few new people who may be into some of the same things; and to get a little closer to the pulse of all that good energy we sometimes lose touch with, while going to and fro' and up and down at a dizzying pace just trying to live in this wonderful but often frenetic and decidedly hulking city.
