Alana Fajemisin: “Mes Sentiments” Exhibit Opening at 464 Gallery – Buffalo [6.8.12]

Too bad I won’t be home in time to catch the opening of this exhibit by one of my close friends back home, Alana Fajemisin of AlanAdetolArts. I will however be able to catch the final day if my flight is in on time. Check out some amazing artwork and her latest interview over on

Emotion is a complex psycho-physiological experience of an individual’s state of mind as interacting with biochemical (internal) and environmental (external) influences.

In humans, emotion fundamentally involves “physiological arousal, expressive behaviors, and conscious experience.” Emotion is associated with mood, temperament, personality, disposition, and motivation. Motivations direct and energize behavior, while emotions provide the affective component to motivation, positive or negative.

No definitive emotion classification system exists, though numerous taxonomies have been proposed. Universal emotions recognized cross-culturally based on research on identification of facial expressions and several different theories aim to explain the origin, experience, and function of emotions.

Here are my sentiments, my feelings, my emotions, displayed for your viewing pleasure…on found objects and things.

****Show on deck until Wednesday June 13th, 2012. RSVP.

Leah Renae presents BoxWork: Art Exhibit in Support of Alzheimer’s Disease – Buffalo [6.14.12]

My good friend Leah who draws, paints, sketches, sings, and more is hosting an art exhibit, BoxWork, in which she will display artwork she has personally created during the year. Alzheimer’s disease is a disease that has closely affected her family and because of this she was encouraged to give back.

Alzheimer’s disease is the 6th leading cause of death and affects 5.6 million people in the United States alone. Since the year 2000 that number continues to steadily grow. Though there currently is not a cure, or an understanding of why this disease occurs, researchers aim to reach this quest.

The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America recognizes hows stressful of a task caregivers have and provide tips, counseling and other communication.

I’ll be home and will be stopping by.  Awesome work Leah!
