Hoping...Not on the Menu 2 is beginning to cook

Posted on September 23, 2014 at 8:41am 0 Comments

we're talking of a photo exhibit again with Corky Lee and I for 2016.

We're hoping Ryan Lee Wong of New York will be the guest curator for this exhibit. Hoping Judy Yung to be writing the blurb.

In the meantime CCC will be fundraising for this milestone exhibit.  This is a follow up to our exhibit in 1981.  We're hoping to do a publication too.

So we will stay healthy and keep our knees in shape for the two year wait.  Hoping.

Back in 1981 Corky Lee and I had a photo exhibit at the Chinese Culture Center.  The theme was about Chinatowns of New York and San Francisco.  We're trying to see if we can do a follow up…


The making of Hidden Dragon

Deep Roots and New Shoots 2 is the second party of a previous exhibit at the National Japanese American Historical Society gallery.  In this exhibit, we were supposed to show our latest artwork.  Me and my big mouth told them I was going to paint a special painting for this exhibit.

Well...when it came to the deadline of submitting artwork, I haven't even got started.  So after three days…


Icons of Presence Exhibition

Thank you everyone who attended the exhibition.

A special thanks to the CCC staff to providing the facilities. The curators Nancy and Lenore for all their hardwork. To Margo Machida who got this all started and making share we are counted in the history of Asian American art.

And for that great opening night...a lot of people told me they really enjoyed the event. It was an honor to have been a part of this exhibition and a milestone…


A Great Opening for Icons

Posted on October 26, 2008 at 1:07pm 0 Comments

Thank you everyone who made it out to the opening on October 23rd. There was enough food to go around...or was there? But I was glad to see everyone come out. People whom I haven't seen in a while. As well as meeting new people. That's what it's all about.

I've been to several funerals and memorials within the last year and it's so bad that it takes a funeral to get a lot of us old friends together. So just having this get together over my art… Continue
