DESCRIPTION

“Dine with an Artist” on September 30 @ Cheri Harlem

 

New York (September 22, 2014) – Optional Allusions Part II opens at Cheri Restaurant in Harlem on Tuesday September 30 at 6pm with a dinner crafted by the chef from local markets and organic farmers.  Optional Allusions is a two-part exhibit featured in the lobby, lounge and street-front windows of Aloft Hotel and continued 3 blocks over at Cheri Restaurant, 231 Lenox Avenue between 121st and 122nd Streets.   Guests will be seated at a table with one of the 6 artists featured in Optional Allusions and enjoy conversation, wine or sangria, appetizer, entrée and dessert.  There will be surprise fashion and musical previews – all making for a very special art & dining experience. 

Optional Allusions Part I & II, curated by Leanne Stella, examines various perspectives and perceptions of reality and questions whether one’s truth is another’s illusion.  The artists propose alternate realities suggesting allegories, myths, and legend revealed in the form of avatars, visualized fantasies, illusions and allusions. Curious and mysterious images by photographers John Pinderhughes and Ivan Forde interrelate with 3-dimensional creatures by Danielle Siegelbaum, cosmic visions by painter Anthony E. Boone, doppelgangers by mixed media artist Uday Dhar and eccentric portraits by Ken Weisensee.
