Check out this open studio and benefit event at Deceus Art Studio. The project will include an exhibition featuring new work and a screening of This Side of Forever, a video documentary featuring Haitian earthquake survivors, in collaboration with Haitian filmmaker Anthony Calypso, artist John Bylander, and Francks F. Deceus. This event will also be raising awareness and funds for non-profit organizations working in Haiti.
There will also be a special art sale (discounts of 15% to 40% off) to help raise the necessary funds to facilitate the trip to Haiti and production of the documentary.
“I have to admit – it was more curiosity than interest that led me to Central Park West on a freezing Friday evening, the night before our first snow storm…” (Excerpt from Es Sully Roundtable, Jan. 23, 2012)

Thank you to all who attended the AQ/Art Quake Exhibit Opening Reception at Five Myles Gallery last Friday! AQ/Art Quake is a group of 10 internationally known artists who have contributed to a portfolio of original contemporary prints available for collection. All proceeds from the portfolio sales benefit artists of KOLAJ.
In attendance from KOLAJ that evening, was Co-Director Anderson Ambroise, who spoke to guests about this current project. Other participating artists such as Vladimir Cybil Charlier and Rejin Leys were in attendance that evening. Guests enjoyed delicious Haitian treats, an intimate ambiance, and a special performance by poet and performance artist Gabrielle Civil. Gabrielle’s piece was absolutely captivating and opened up room for discussion. You can watch her performance here on Youtube.
Even though the Opening Reception was Haiti Cultural Exchange’s last event of the year, it was just the beginning of a one-month art installation and event series. The installation will be on display until January 15th at Five Myles! Please visit the AQ/ Art Quake Program page to get more information about the AQ/ Art Quake events taking place in January 2012!
