Is Art Only For the Wealthy article.
Did you ever fall in love with a work of art and think you could not afford it? Art is a language of the soul, and it is our passion to create it. When our art speaks to someone and they want to live with it we make it our business to help them. That’s how we roll. We work with our collectors to find creative ways to acquire our art. These experiences are personal between us and you.

BEFORE COLLABORATION WITH CUBA, THERE WAS PABLO AND LINDA
New Century Artists invites you to the solo/duo exhibition of 50 collaborative paintings by Cuban artist Pablo Perea and American artist Linda Storm. Opens JUNE 2, 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Closing reception JULY 11th, 12:00 to 3:00 PM at New Century Artists, 530 West 25th Street, Suite 406, NY,NY. Exhibit takes place JUNE 30th-JULY 11th, 2015 Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“We are friends who are artists who paint together, it doesn’t matter if Linda is a blonde American and I am a dark Cuban.” says Pablo Perea. “We paint together with confidence and humility as we assert and suppress our egos.” replies Linda Storm. Both followed separate artistic careers for decades. Fortuitously, Pablo moved in as Linda’s neighbor in rural New Mexico and their inevitable friendship developed. In 2010, Pablo invited Linda to paint with him while she grieved the loss of a beloved pet, insisting it would make her feel better. The result, titled Fate Up Against Her Will, is owned by their first collector.
Pablo and Linda are inspired by New Mexico, where mountain lions leap from mesas, antelope graze, and galaxies glow above adobe villages. They share a studio in Santa Fe where they created 150 provocative paintings so far: oil wells rooted to dinosaur fossils, homeless Virgin Marys’, and planets’ spawning new life. Storm and Perea are masters of collaboration in art and life.
See their debut solo/duo exhibition in NY, NY at New Century Artists Gallery, 530 West 25th Street, Suite 406,NY, NY on June 30th through July 11th, 2015.

Pablo Perea was a physician in Cuba. He left medicine for art. Linda Storm as a Montessori teacher encouraged children to follow their bliss. Both are married to artists who applaud their duo career.
Stories about the importance of victory have been written about for thousands of years. A favorite is the Ancient Greek story about Atalanta, whose ability to outrun any suitor guaranteed her freedom, and their death.
Suddenly, during a race against the man she hated more than any other, because he killed her brother, began to outrun her. Suddenly, the Goddess Artemis threw a golden apple on the race-track to divert Atalanta’s attention.
Atalanta faltered at the sight of the golden apple, and softened. She allowed herself to see the man running against her with compassion and empathy, and became vulnerable.
The need to win, to be the victor at all costs is still prevalent today. Unfortunately, compassion is often sidelined in order to achieve such goals, as is the ability to enjoy the moment. We need more golden apples.
Those times when we abandon the embedded “supposed to win” attitude, and laugh wildly, when we share our deepest thoughts and feelings, we create our most fabulous art.
A friend commented that he met Madonna once, and she even conversed with him. Tim was starstruck. He said “the oddest thing about her was that she glowed.” Someone interrupted to suggest that she wears a lot of makeup. Tim said her whole body glowed, like there was a light shining from her insides that was making her glow on the outside.
Everyone listening to the conversation became quiet. A silent question was huge in the room. “Is it possible to glow from an inner light?”
Art connects us to our inner light. Art ignites our connection to each other, and all life. Art shakes off the cobwebs and lights a way through the fog, and it is the fog.
So sing, dance, paint, draw, write, perform, and Shine On You Crazy Diamond!
