"Greed Bleeds" 2011
Mixed Media on Canvas 
24 x 36
Jennifer Contini Enderby

Basak Malone LLC is pleased to announce the up-coming group exhibition “Departure” opening on October 1st at 7:00 pm at Ward Nasse Gallery.

Curator Basak Malone’s project ‘Departure’ sets 10 artists into motion questioning how to let go. “Letting go” is what we are left to reconcile with and this is where we are asked to make a leap continuously and impromptu.

Departure artists: Jennifer Contini Enderby, Knut Peter Hoffmann, Eva Buchrainer, Martine Cyr, Maria Luisa Imperiali , Anna Kajsa Alaoui , Nino Korinteli, Marianne Liegl, Georgeta Stefanescu and Anna VanMatre will be on the view between October 1-30, 2011.

Address:178 Prince Street (Btw. Thompson and Sullivan)

When Basak asked me to "let go" in my work,  I  needed to allow the paint to drip and dry and  place itself on my canvas. 
Theme colors in this piece consisting of gold and blood red... dripped and blended into a pool at my feet reminding me of this :

Carmen Pousada Culture and Arte:
In this exhibition represents the works of 12 Brazilian artists, who in their paintings demonstrate the strength of unusual colors. Many use the synergy between the rhythm and movement in their work to depict the “dreams”
and concepts of modern life.
The concept of “contemporary” figures varies between the abstract figurative interpretations and each piece reflects the artist’s state of mind in a variety of themes and techniques.
This collection of works represents some of the best of what contemporary Brazilian art has to offer.

 a divine appointment...
I met Leda Maria at Art Expo in NYC this year. Leda is an artist, Art Curator and Director of Ward Nasse Gallery in SoHo.
Our 'meeting’ which was totally inspired and God led proves to me that the possibilities of divine appointments are endless! I believe greater things are possible in our lives when being led by the Holy Spirit. 
God will constantly lead us to cross another person’s path to lift us and help us- 
BELIEVE ME, greater things do happen!
I am special guest of Leda Maria Do Prado's in the upcoming Brazilian Contemporary artshow!
The moment I met Leda, we immediately connected.
We are both in the business of ART, COLOR, LOVE, and SALES!
History of Ward-Nasse Gallery
The Ward-Nasse Gallery, founded by Harry Nasse, has been a respected landmark in SoHo, and a place of opportunity for artists for over 40 years. The gallery first opened in Boston during the early sixties. It subsequently moved to its present location in 1970, where it continues to be dedicated to all artists at various stages of their careers.
As an alternative space, attendance to the gallery's 2,000 ft. first-floor space has risen over the years to its current 15,000 visitors annually. All modes of contemporary art are exhibited, from traditionally executed works to more experimental art forms. Artists from across the country share walls with artists from Europe, Asia and South America.

Last night Leo and I walked about the streets of SoHo in the rain and quickly popped into POP INTERNATIONAL GALLERIES, Inc. on West Broadway.
The gallery lit up Leo's eyes with the playful works and vibrant colors!
The NYC gallerists, though busy with a buyer looking at high priced works, were kind and welcoming to us. One curator took the time to educate my son on Pop Artist Peter Mars. I am grateful to gallery owners/ art lovers/ art curators like these New Yorkers that that engage in the young. I believe it is through galleries like these,  the spirit of POP ART is kept ALIVE!!!! 
The playfulness of Pop Art --- especially Romero Britto's eye candy to collectors with millions and to children alike. Leo and I also walked by Britto's large-scale Apple sculpture at La Guardia Airport American Airlines terminal the other day- Immediately he connected with Pop International Galleries in SoHo. 
......because of the inviting smiles, zesty colors, electrifying art and kindness that pulled us in from the rain, I promote and thank this gallery on my facebook and here on my blog this morning!
I am constantly movin' about this beautiful city of ours always finding
 warm hearts through the arts wherever I go.

            Leo wants me to add here that his favorite artist 
(second to his mom) ;-) 
is Peter Mars!

(A psalm by David for the music leader.)
 1-3I've already run for dear life straight to the arms of God
   So why would I run away now
      when you say,
   "Run to the mountains; the evil
      bows are bent, the wicked arrows
   Aimed to shoot under cover of darkness
      at every heart open to God.
   The bottom's dropped out of the country;
      good people don't have a chance"?

 4-6 But God hasn't moved to the mountains;
      his holy address hasn't changed.
   He's in charge, as always, his eyes
      taking everything in, his eyelids
   Unblinking, examining Adam's unruly brood
      inside and out, not missing a thing.
   He tests the good and the bad alike;
      if anyone cheats, God's outraged.
   Fail the test and you're out,
      out in a hail of firestones,
   Drinking from a canteen
      filled with hot desert wind.

 7 God's business is putting things right;
      He loves getting the lines straight,
   Setting us straight. Once we're standing tall,
      we can look him straight in the eye.
Even in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles, including evil oppression and ill-advice, we need not flee to our earthly fortresses of safety. We can take refuge in the Lord to see that the righteous are upheld, and the wicked are punished for their evil, yet~

Forgiveness and LOVE can always be found!
