|“Dead Ringers”, Qiana Mestrich 201|
It’s a mixed emotion kind of day… I’m a little sad because I was supposed to be in Paris right now live blogging from the Black Portraiture[s] conference but due to unexpected delays in the preparation for my MFA solo show, I had to cancel my trip.
Yet it’s a GREAT day because I’m excited that my MFA solo exhibition opens in 2 weeks! The show will include my photography, writing and mixed media work around the themes of human duplication and profiling.
I’d like to cordially invite YOU, my fabulous blog readers, to come see what I’m working on right now and maybe even get into some conversation about it over some wine and cheese. If you can’t make the opening reception, be sure to come by on Friday or Saturday from Noon to 5pm. Friends, family and lovers are welcome!
Look forward to seeing you at my first solo show… if you can’t make it at all, I will be posting images from the show to my website in the days after the show closes. Or follow me on Instagram for some outtakes from my studio during the next two weeks of show prep.
Opening Reception: Thursday, January 31st | 6-9pm ET
On View: Friday, Feb 1st and Saturday, Feb 2nd | Noon-5pm ET
Location: ICP-Bard College MFA Studios (near MOMA PS1)
24-20 Jackson Ave, 3rd Floor Long Island City, Queens
Subway: E, M, G or 7 to Court Square
