What better way to spend the longest day in summer than to take a trip to Rockland County home to the historic Vaclav Vytlacil and it’s Artist In Residence program.

My discover of some very gifted artist started with a wine toast to the Summer of 2014 with Gary L. Sussman, Director of the Art Students League’s Vytlacil Campus here in the Elizabeth V. Sullivan Gallery. Here, I was able to view the latest work of my wonderful friend, Naomi Campbell. The show was entitled “SPAWNING: conversations that go on with the virtual identity” curated by Susanne Karbin and G.L. Sussman. This exhibit truly showed the range of Naomi’s artistic expression in her reflection on our advanced technological society and it’s affects on our psyche.
