I'll be back in New York City with Mackey Twins Art on Friday, November 11, 2016. When the twins put on a show, it's done right! They're having a reception, sale and panel discussion from 5:30p.m. until 8:30p.m. Live jazz, light food and wine will be provided. They've assembled many fine pieces of art created by wonderful artists working in various media. The exhibition will be shown from October 31st until December 1st in Manhattan at Interchurch Center Gallery, a beautiful, elegant, well-lit space in a 19-story limestone-clad office building on Riverside Drive by 120th Street across the street from the (famous) Riverside Church.
Riverside Church is in Morningside Heights near Columbia University in upper Manhattan. It is also one block south of President Grant's Tomb. This inter- denominational Christian church conceived by industrialist John D. Rockefeller and minister Harry E. Fosdick opened its doors on October 5, 1930. Its congregation consists of more than 40 ethnic groups and its programs and services reflect that. The Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke there and so did, Secretary General of the United Nations, Kofi Anan, Cesar Chavel and Fidel Castro. Patti Smith and Yoko Ono are among many others who have made appearances there. Check out Wikipedia.org for more info.
This is the second panel discussion presented by the Mackey Twins that I will have participated in. The first was at the landmark Schomburg Library in Harlem. The audience enjoyed the meaningful discussion as well as the high-quality art and refreshments. You will too; come and join us. The twins are currently re-vamping their website but you'll be able to find out more about them when it's up and running.
