GAIA Harmonic Project Art Exhibition Grand Opening Oct 5 2012

Takaji (Greetings) My Relatives

Last night Bobbi Smokifantastic Williams' beautiful dream GAIA HARMONIC ART EXHIBITION was realized and got off to an awesome start with a huge bang in a startling celebration of music, dance, art, poetry and just pure magic at Assemble Communal Space for Art and Technology in the Garfield community of Pittsburgh, PA.


The month-long art display is scheduled to last from its grand opening last night, Friday Oct 6 til October 28 2012.

I was thrilled to participate in that grand opening last evening, performing in collaboration with our local rap-poet supertstar Kellee Maize and the talented Aztec dancers that she brought back with her after her recent performance tour in Mexico.

I performed a few Spanish language numbers with an Indigenous spiritual theme.

Kellee's performance was nothing less than mezmerizing!


Leni thoroughly enjoyed Kellee's masterful interpretation of her own poetic creations.

The Aztec Dancers were an unique experience to a Pittsburgh audience that is largely inexperienced in the beauty and enchantment of Mexican Indigenous dance artistry.

It was a great honor to have my artwork displayed along with the work of other local artists here in Pittsburgh. It has been a while since I had an opportunity to consistantly display my work and this exhibit gives me an opportunity that I trully appreciate.

One of the three pieces I am displaying is "UNITY VASE", an oil painting inspired by the beautiful shape of the traditional ancient Taino mamiform marriage vases.

Another piece is my watercolor "URBAN TAINO RESURGENCE".

Another piece I am displaying is my most recent oil painting "INVOKING THE ANCESTORS"

It was such a pleasure to spend real quality time with my friends Bobbi and Kellee.

and so many other of my Peaceburgh friends.

I want to express my admiration for Bobbi and all of the other young people who banded together to organize Gaia Harmonic.

I want to thank Bobbi for her vision and talent and her generosity in inviting me to participate in this beautiful thing.
