Family Gathering

 Cup of the Day #4  by Gwyneth Leech
Greek Drinking Cup
Acrylic on cardboard cup
Painted in the studio 

The cups have had their first  public outing as part of my exhibition in room 940 at the Pool Art Fair. People have been full of admiration and puzzlement in equal measure. But they are here to make people feel comfortable about drawing. As visitors enter the room they are invited to sit on the bed and make a drawing. The theme is family. The public has responded with gusto. 80 have accepted the invitation so far.  You can see the album by clicking here. The drawings are going into the bathroom gallery and I will post photos of the results soon.

The fun resumes at the Gershiwn Hotel 7 East 27th Street, today and Sunday  3 - 10PM. 60 artists work to see on 8th, 9th and 10 th floor. If the elevator is slow fee free to walk up.

By the way, the Gershwin Hotel  has an awesome coffee bar just off the lobby called Birch. Fair trade teas and coffees. Beautiful selection of loose leaf teas, good eats, free WiFI and a library. It rocks, as does the Gerwhin hotel itself.
