New Rochelle And Pelham ArtsFest

1_0000_new-rochelleNew Rochelle, New York  – Sunday, September 29, 2013

I’m taking a road trip Sunday up to New Rochelle for the New Rochelle ArtsFest.  I know it’s back-to-back days of art fests, attending Dumbo Arts Fest today (currently), but there are 29 venues 57in a community I have absolutely no clue about, and The New Rochelle Council on the Arts is supplying free trollies to shuttle foot bound art goers from venue to venue.

The fact that friend and fellow artist Raquel Echanique has a solo show at Mooney Center Gallery titled Sequence of Bases. opening as part of the ArtsFest also weighed a lot into the decision to gas-up and make the hike out of the city.

She has two concurrent shows outside of the US right now “Mas es Mas” (More is More) at the Contemporary Art Museum CACQ, Quito, and Interbifep, The International Biennial of Portrait, Tuzla, Bosnia Y Hercegovina.
