I am working with Dianne Mendez to create a series of programs centered around occasional gatherings of collectors, curators, artists, writers and art enthusiasts who will meet & mingle in Soho lofts to show and discuss artwork, sources of inspiration, preferred techniques and perspectives on collecting.
