LOSING OUR FIGURES: Opening Reception: Cojo Journeys Into The Abstract In The LES

1

New York City – Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Last Thursday was the opening reception for my new solo show Losing Our Figures of works on paper and canvas at Le Salon d’Art in the Lower East Side.  Of course I brought my camera even though it was my show, and took a lot of pictures.  I’ve attended many shows at Le Salon d’Art so it was an honor to have been asked to solo.  Enjoy!
