As I am sitting in my dorm room, trying to figure out my Programming assignment, my thoughts shift back to the summer I spent at the Park View Gallery. At 4:00AM in the morning, my mind travels through time and space. I think of the comfy sofas laid nicely against the wall, the artistic universe that surrounds you, and the meditative quality of the gallery space. Once you surrender, you begin to wish that you can make this your home. You wish that the painting hanging on top of the sofa could somehow be on the wall of your bedroom. Then, something catches your eyes; you muse over it and contemplate. Someone comes over and tells you a story. You feel a connection.
But let’s return to business. PVG is starting the New Year with lots of goodness.
