I'm going to New York tomorrow morning. I have several things to do there, one of them is to attend the opening of a group show called "Commune" at Black & White Gallery. I have a couple pieces in the show, it looks like it is going to be really cool. Here is the press release info.

I’ve established deep personal and professional bonds with each artist in COMMUNE. They are my friends. Organizing the summer show COMMUNE at Black & White Gallery for me has been akin to the creating of a fantasy island. On this island distinct artworks co-exist in mutuality, as visions of possibilities and impossibilities are marooned, fated to converse, to sing and laugh together, endlessly, communally.Dominique Nahas, April 2009, New York
