Poetry and Art by Srividya Kannan Ramachandran in "Mom Egg Review"

The Girl in the Apartment Below

As the train whistled past the lonely road,
She stood still.
The stale neon lights illumined
the plastic smile on her lips.
Her burdened shoulder drooped.
Yet, she waved.
She was all but ten.

I got a glimpse of her sorrow beneath,
I blinked, and she was gone.
Why didn’t I share my journey with her?
She was all but ten.

          –Srividya Kannan Ramachandran

N'Cognita at Theater for the New City

Theater for the New City Lower East Side Festival

Sunday, May 28, 2017 7:54PM for just 10 minutes


created by

Vernita Nemec, also known as N'Cognita

with music by Larry Simon

The Theater for the New City Lower East Side Festival organized by Crystal field & happening Memorial Day weekend in NYC's Lower East Side at 1st Avenue & 10th Street will be presenting a multitude of 10 minute performances & readings- all free, all weekend. Among the performers & poets are Penny Arcade, Tammy Faye, Pheobe Legere, Nicky Paraiso, Reno, Yuko & Vernita N'Cognita. Come Sunday 7:54 PM to the Cabaret Theater (check the red door to the left of the 1st entrance) & stay for the evening! 
In “Entangled”, N'Cognita again incorporates out of scale props to search within the media of performance for a clearer understanding of what it is to be a woman today. In this work, she has braided 600 yards of ribbon into a large ball and sits in a child sized chair as she explores with the audience unanswerable questions discovered in a book. The artist uses Butoh movement forms interpreted uniquely & personally to explore, along with words and props, conceptual ideas in her performance work. How our complicated lives entangle us. 

Vernita Nemec, also known as N'Cognita to honor underknown artists, has been creating performance artworks since 1978 when she "occupied" a corner of Prince &Wooster Streets in early days of SoHo. Since that time she has presented more than 70 performances in the United States, Hungary, Japan, Ireland, Germany, Mexico and France, including guerrilla performances at the Pompidou Museum in Paris and Documenta 13 in Kasel. This is the third Lower East Side Festival season in which she has performed. A different iteration of "Entangled" was presented at Judson Church as part of the Movement Research Monday Night Series. Her performances can also be seen on UTube. Come Sunday 7:54 PM to the Cabaret Theater (check the red door to the left of the 1st entrance) & stay for the evening!

May 16 - June 3, 2017
Reception, Saturday, May 20, 2-5pm

Chelsea NY: Viridian Artists is pleased to present a solo exhibition of mixed media photography by artist Bernice Faegenburg. Opening on May 16, 2017, the exhibit will run through June 3rd, with a reception on Saturday, May 20, from 2-5pm. 

Bernice Faegenburg is an artist who has always enjoyed experimenting and exploring new media. In this exhibition of new work, she has continued her involvement with nature and the environment, but her current focus is trees. Trees in all their glory.

 In the past, Faegenburg's media focus has been primarily painting and Japanese brushwork, but this time she has had her digital photographs transformedin a variety of ways. Incorporating fabric for the first time, she has created installations of her images that flow both figuratively & literally as viewers stop before the work. In addition, she has used a variety of digital photographic apps and continues exploring and experimenting with them.

All about her love of trees, these new works take you out of the gallery and perhaps onto the backporch looking out at the woods or lawn behind your house- wherever the viewer prefers to imagine themselves. One can see the artist's love of nature and experimentation for she has taken her art beyond the stretched canvas and unto printed, airy and unstretched fabric blowing in the breeze as trees do.

Faegenburg's favorite tree is the Witch Hazel that is the first to bloom in her hometown of Roselyn, Long Island.She carries her camera everywhere with her, often stopping along the side of the road to catch an image, capturing trees in all their seasons of dress and undress. Despite the fact that most of the images in this exhibit start with a photograph, one can see her earlier influences of Japanese brush painting still. 

Faegenburg has always approached her art making instinctively, allowing her images to grow out of her daily experiences. For her, the most important aspect of her art is the doing for process is as important to her as the outcome.

 The artist did undergraduate work at the Tyler School of Fine Arts and Temple University, where she studied printmaking and egg tempera techniques in the Rennaisance manner. She came to New York after graduation, attending the National Academy of Design and receiving a Masters Degreee at C.W. Post College, studying painting and graphics with Robert Yasuda and later, Oriental philosopy and its relationshiop to painting with Jerry Okimoto

Gallery hours: Tuesday-Saturday 12- 6 PM. For further information please contact Vernita Nemec, Gallery Director at 212 414 4040 or viridianartistsinc@gmail.com or view the gallery website: www.viridianartists.com
