Women in Sci-fi & Fantasy art show opens this week in NY

There will be a nice summer exhibit opening at the Society of Illustrators in New York. The show is titled: Point of Vision –Celebrating Women Artists in Fantasy and Science Fiction– . The show is curated by two acclaimed female art directors in the field, Irene Gallo of Tor.com and Lauren Panepinto of Orbit Books.
I am not exactly who you think as a fantasy (or sci-fi) artist, but I do work in the field here and there, and my work is known to be surreal. So, the curators were kind enough to include some of my works in the exhibit. They let the artists pick our own, thus, I decided to show two original black and white drawings, as well as one color print.

The show will be up from now till August 20, 2016 at the Society of Illustrators (128 E, 63rd St @Lexington Ave, New York), and there will be opening reception on Friday, June 10 from 6:30PM. Hope you can come see the show. And if you are coming to the opening, I will see you then.
