A couple of things that may be of interest to the group, both opening up this week but on opposite sides of the United States . I am going to attend both events, but I am going to visit the San Francisco Tribal Arts Show this weekend and visit Lees exhibition in New Jersey on the 24th or 25th.
The only ticket I could get to San Francisco that would allow me to fly in and out on
the same day was on Friday the 10th. If anyone else in the group will be attending the show on Friday the 10th, please send me and email and maybe we can meet up. I met up with a few people last year from the group for the NY Tribal Arts Show and it was great.
Anyone in the New Jersey area, try and plan a little road trip to stop in to see Lees exhibition as it runs from the 7th to the 26th of this month. I spoke to him today and he is busy putting last minute touches on everything. I think it is great that he is exhibiting with a contemporary African artist, it will be nice to see the two forms displayed in the same space.
