Opening Reception was on October 1, 2010 I attended with my wife Orsola Acosta and my mother In-Law Lina Creanza and we all had a great time. I enjoyed looking at all the art and meeting other Hispanic artists that were exhibiting at this event. I knew a few of the artists and others I was very glad to meet.
My painting "Voyage" is exhibited at this exhibition at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center, 234 East 149th Street, Bronx NY 10451
"Altered Reality___ explores how individuals influence each with their behavior, culture and, in doing so, how people effect and shape their environment. Recent research has shown that even those peripherally around an individual shape and change that person__™s behavior and habits. Taken on a larger scale, these gestures and beliefs go to construct the society we live in and shape all that is around us. The artists in ___Altered Reality___ take their focus from a multiplicity of vantage points, and they show the various characteristics and expressions that people put in motion in their creation of society, their selves and the settings that they live in.
