Recently my work has been featured in a book from Schiffer Publishing called Stars and Stripes: The American Flag in Contemporary Art by E. Ashley Rooney and Stephanie Standish . Once the book came out Zenith Gallery in Washington DC decided to have a show featuring artist from the book and their own artists for their Stars and Stripes show.
DC is a city of architectural beauty and cultural richness. I always enjoy spending time here, wether looking at art or walking around my favorite parts of town- Adams Morgan and Logan Circle.
Got my falafel! If you like falafels, Amsterdam Falafel Shop show is a must. Excellent crisp falafels and lots of topping choices.
Outside Zenith Gallery. Founded in 1978, Zenith is a favorite among locals.
Selfie with Harry Wingo, President and CEO of the DC Chamber of Commerce. The show had two openings - once at Zenith Gallery and once at the DC Chamber of Commerce.
My pieces - "Here, Use My Brain" and "Freedom Owl" next to Fabiano Amin's America series. His work is also featured in the book.
Artists Laura Taylor and Scott Royston with Harry Wingo.
Artists at the opening outside Zenith Gallery.
The second opening was held in the DC Chamber of Commerce.
This is the next block over from the Chamber of Commerce. I quite like the window detail on these historic buildings. I also like the date of construction on the front of the building so you don't have to wonder how old it is! I find the juxtaposition between old and new quite interesting and well thought out in DC.
Harry Wingo, Marcelo Novo and Keith Norval. Marcelo's piece is right next to mine.
Fellow artist, Hadrian Mendoza, and me. Hadrian currently has a show of his pottery with the Zenith Gallery.

As an immigrant from Zimbabwe, I was proud to be included in this show.
