In December, NY Coo Gallery will hold an exhibition of etchings by Mary Teichman and a group exhibition of Japanese artists curated by Fugetsusha Gallery.
Mary Teichman graduated from The Cooper Union in New York in 1976. A printmaker, painter, illustrator and calligrapher, she has been a working artist since that time.
Mary was among a group of artists who worked at the influential Printmaking Workshop in Manhattan during the 1970s and 80s. She cites among her early influences the work of Spanish still-life painters such as Zurbaran and the interiors and cityscapes of Edward Hopper, in seeking to go beyond purely representational subjects to draw the viewer into abstractions of form and color.
Her etchings are in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, The Boston Athenaeum, The New York Public Library, and The Museum of the City of New York, among others. In addition, Mary is active in numerous printmaking societies, notably the Society of American Graphic Artists and the Boston Printmakers.

Necklaces by TOPPI (Λς) NYCfs Murano Series. http://www.nycoo.com/toppi/
Spending a week in Venice at the start of my trip to Italy this past summer, I got caught up going in and out of all the necklace stores there, and visiting the Murano Glass Museum. Venice was one of the centers of world trade in the Renaissance and Murano beads were used as currency and for barter throughout Europe, Africa, Asia and the New World aka the Americas. The glass artisans worked on Murano Island to keep the knowhow from leaking out. The sheer beauty and varieties are tremendous from the simple clear glass balls to the intricate silver and gold-leaf beads. Sumi Nakazato

I am currently working on a series of paintings based on the Book of Psalms.
The Book of Psalms is found in the middle of the Old Testament. Introducing the new Psalm Paintings I interpreted 140 of the 150 Psalms and have 10 more to before completing the series. Keico W
