Lorca presents... Mini Paintings by Cris Dam

Lorca presents

Mini Paintings by Cris Dam

Saturday, 2 November 2013
6–8pm
125 Bedford St., Stamford, CT

Lorca is pleased to present Mini Paintings by Cris Dam, an exhibition of over twenty recent oil paintings that will run through January 2014. These intimate works on clayboard will join Dam’s permanent wall mural at Lorca, creating a rich aesthetic dialogue between the design elements of the space and the installation of art.

Dam cofounded Dam, Stuhltrager Gallery in 1998 and was an early gallerist and artist to propel Williamsburg, Brooklyn, into an international art mecca. Born in Alaska, raised in Spain, educated in New York City, and currently raising a family in Connecticut, Dam unites diverse landscapes with universal patterns found everywhere in nature to connect all cultures. Taking root in organic abstraction, he combines exotic imagery with Pop colors and modern lines, and his use of color-blending creates infinite depth out of simple silhouettes.
Last fall, the American Embassy in Berlin, Germany, commissioned Dam to create a mural for the 5’ x 60’ entrance walls of ├ľkozentrum Park and a 60’ mural facing the entrance of Kunsthalle Bethanian. Other recent projects include Paradigm Shift, The WYE, Berlin (2013); a 40’ mural for OneSpark, Jacksonville, Florida (2013); Scene & Heard, re:MADE, Brooklyn (2013); Time Keeper, Empire Project, Istanbul (2012); CYLAND, IMAL, Brussels (2012); and inclusion in group exhibits at The WYE, Berlin, and the Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia (2012).

Dam recently collaborated with Chouchette in Turkey, a company pairing contemporary artists with traditional artisans in Tokat. His limited-edition handbags will be available at Lorca during the exhibition.

Lorca is a specialty coffee shop and small exhibit space in downtown Stamford that opened in the fall of 2012. For all press inquiries, please call (203) 504-2847.

KIDS DRAW FREE PROGRAM in Kiwanis Park

 KIDS DRAW FREE PROGRAM in Kiwanis Park

Started this past May, and all through the summer (and until it is too cold), the father and son team of Alex and Ryan Virvo host a lively and unique activity for kids.

KIDS DRAW FREE program is a great way for kids to build self-esteem while having fun. Officially starting at noon (but often as early as 10:30 am) and ending at 4pm, kids from ages 2-13 come to Kiwanis Park and create their masterpiece. This FREE program gives each participating child a pre-printed art frame upon which the child will draw their masterpiece using provided markers, DOTS, and sticker books.


After creating their art, kids get to describe (often at length) their art, and then rewarded in several ways. First, each child receives an "I AM AN ARTIST" sticker, then; along with their parents, they may take their masterpiece on tour to local participating restaurants. The tour is designed to reward the kids with great treats, such as pizza, cookies, ice cream, and other goodies simply by showing their masterpieces to the participating restaurants, all of which are within walking distance of Kiwanis Park.

 The tour is key, as children get to experience, that their art earns them a reward, and the looks on their faces afterwards is telling. They feel, proud, self-confident, and over time, it is clear that the activity builds their self-esteem, preparing them to become powerful adults.


The program, currently self-funded by the father and son duo, plan to seek funding partners to help bring KIDS DRAW FREE to more area parks.

The KIDS DRAW FREE event takes place every Saturday, noon to 4pm, and weather permitting inside Kiwanis Park and will continue this outside activity until it is too cold. (Tentatively November)


For additional information kidsdrawfree.com or you may contact Alex Virvo at 203-570-3598, or email alex@greatlocalart.com

Navaratna Indian Restaurant...a veggie lunch


When out to lunch with a good friend from high school yesterday. He came all the way from Brooklyn to suprise me and go out to lunch.  Back in the 80's, we used to dine at an old Indian resto in Queens, NY run by the late Sri Chimnoy, so coming to Stamford and finding Navarntna Indian Restaurant was a treat.  

We sat at the outdoor dining portion and enjoyed a nice lunch. Veggies all the way.   

Many people on the street, walking around enjoying the last of these beautiful days of fall.  
Look at the yummy dessert below - can you guess what it is?
