Nourished by both common and distinct roots and flourishing in the freedom of this country.

The subject of his most recent watercolors includes the extinct species of Passenger Pigeons, Falling Bough, 2002, depicting hundreds of the once abundant species perched on a bough buckling from their weight. Upon close inspection, each is engaged in the vices often depicted in Breughal paintings. For the first time, Ford deviates from his representations in The Starling, 2002. A grossly overgrown European starling, a bird that has spread to many continents, often driving out native species. The voracious appetite of the bird has rendered the landscape barren as it is being fed by exotic birds from all over the world. Each work is rich in symbolism and often a commentary on history, colonialism and the relationship between man and animal. Hours: Tues thru Sat from 10 - 6pm.

I will deny every art-beautiful art, technical art and impact art. I deny my own art. I believe that through this 'denying' process an incredible potentiality exists. 'Denying' leads to infinite creativity." Kurosaki's existential questions are an age-old one and yet they are new: An ongoing endeavor and exploration towards discovering and understanding man's seemingly finite existence within the context of the vast universe. Finite versus infinite infinity within finite. RECEPTION: Saturday Oct 26 from 6-8 p.m.

- September 11 thru October 2, 2002 - Vintage New York - Art Exhibit at the Oakeside Bloomfield Cultural Center, in Bloomfield NJ, pays tribute to New York on the Anniversary of September 11 and will be available for loan after October 2, 2002. The exhibition is about New York City's history in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Vintage New York consists of over a hundred scenes of the city's people, places and events in its history since 1898 - when its five boroughs were joined into one city. It deals with the tragedies of New York's past as well as with the quiet places where city dwellers go to find refuge from the hectic pace of urban living. Before 9/11/01, this show might have been looked upon as simply another collection of interesting and nostalgic scenes of New York. Today, it takes on greater significance, as the entire country and most of the world still mourns the deaths of thousands of it's citizens and the savage obliteration of one of the youngest of it's architectural landmarks, itself less than a half-century old. Vintage New York is an attempt to bring to light once again an aspect of nostalgic New York which survives today only in small part, whether in architecture or in spirit - to preserve the memory of a time almost forgotten - which may well prove a haven for many of us who rush into uncertain futures . RECEPTION: Sunday, September 22nd from 1 to 3 pm.
