From Nyack to Japan...

I have been riveted to the stories coming from Japan. Without any real connections to the country except a deep love of the culture, the food the art, I found myself trying to find some way to assist. There is of course no easy way sitting here in Tappan, in the office in Nyack, or on my way through my day in Rockland county that I could find to assist. But recently traveling along the Palisades on my way north towards my friends office in NewCity that I heard on the radio a review of the Japan's Society's recent show, "Bye, Bye Kitty" an exhibition of contemporary Japanese Art. While Japanese Contemporary Art is often difficult to understand one thing is certain. The works of art here are real technically beautiful in many instances. They show, as many works of Japanese art a virtuosity of skill not often seen in their western counterparts. At the moment if you do go see the show 50% of the ticket you buy will be directly donated to Japanese Earthquake recovery efforts and charities. Sounds like no better incentive than to make the short 35 minute drive from Tappan or Upper Grandview to the city and see some wonderful works of art.
