is my great pleasure to presentan exhibition of paintings by artist, Chris Ann Farhood, who has been both a friend and creative colleague for several years. Farhood works in oil on canvas and is inspired by New York City local farmers' markets.The results are paintings with a sumptuous palette and evocative forms.
Farhood's works are on display at: Pisticci Restuarant on 125 LaSalle St. in NY, NY 10027 SHOW RUNS: November 14, 2015-April 9, 2016 One can feast on homemade Italian cuisine while gazing at these inspiring works.

venerable species and products. I delight in the organic shapes, the

beauty of Nature and the tenacity of the farmer in today’s ever-changing
