Coming soon! The UrbanGlass Art Quarterly Issue #151

The Summer 2018 edition of GLASS: The UrbanGlass Art Quarterly (#151) is on its way to newsstands and subscriber mailboxes. It includes a special free bonus for subscribers — a copy of the just-published New Glass Review #39.

Included in this issue:
  • ON THE COVER: Czech artist Ivana Šrámková uses glass and found objects to create an imaginative aviary of human caricatures
  • A look at the dividing line between inspiration and appropriation in the new Mexican-inspired work of Martin Janecký
  • With two top-level departures, can the Chrysler Museum keep its exciting glass programming thriving? 
  • Attending the 18th annual International Flameworking Conference, Amy Lemaire considers a field in transition
  • Contributing editor William Ganis examines how visually permeable glass volumes make ideal containers for conceptual concerns
All this plus four reviews, an essay on the passing of the extraordinary critic and contributing editor James Yood, and the latest news
from the field.

New York State Of Mind No.59

Just by chance two days ago I found a video in Youtube
(the one below)
a 'book presentation' in Spanish about 'Our Lady of Charity'
and the cuban Soul; with a compilation of artistic memorabilia
on the whole matter by respected cuban-collector Emilio Cueto.
One piece from my  'Virgin-Boat' Series' is featured
in the book and commented  about in this video.
Today; surprised and so glad I'm turning this event into a celebration
for my arrival to USA-38th anniversary by... boat...exactly!
