KATONAH, N.Y. – Sasha Gordon, a young Somers resident, will be the first artist featured in an “Emerging Artist” exhibition at the Anderson Chase Gallery. The exhibition will run from June 3 to June 24. An opening reception will be held 3:30-5:30 p.m. Saturday, June 10.

Located at 65 Old Bedford Road in Goldens Bridge, the gallery is part of the Katonah Art Center, where Gordon began studying art at the age of 5, continuing classes throughout her school years and participating in the center’s Portfolio Development program.

Some of her past accomplishments include winning the Somers High School Award for Excellence in Studio Art and first place in the iCreate Competition at Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Conn. Her work has been featured in the “Team Dream presented by TopShop” exhibition and the Young Artist 2016 exhibition at the Katonah Museum of Art, and was selected for permanent display in the New York State Capitol Building in Albany.

Currently a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, Gordon will be exhibiting a variety of recent paintings and drawings, many large-scale.

In her artist’s statement, Gordon wrote, “My recent works focus more on my identity as a biracial woman and my body as a form…I feel more connected to my Korean roots and appearance…This has led me to create paintings focusing on the idea of accepting myself as an East Asian woman...There’s a conversation about intimacy in my work, expressing very secretive scenes through my pieces and allowing the viewer to peek into them.”

‘You’re with your mother!’

Mom’s birthday is this month. She passed away in 2004 but she lives forever in our hearts, thoughts and memories.  
Mom had class. I see photos of her alone, with Dad and/or others, and her elegance shines: the way she stood, her expressive hands, sparkling eyes and beautiful smile. She dressed with flair—a scarf here, a flower there or matching shoes. Truly a graceful lady.

Radio days

I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic for the bygone era of listening to a baseball game on a crappy-sounding transistor radio. I define nostalgia as the feeling you get when your memory of something is better than what it actually was. I don’t need to bother mustering any warm feelings for the transistor radio, because AM reception is just as crappy-sounding now as it was then.

Only if you’re lucky

Be careful what you wish for…you might get it!  

I heard recently that a group of citizens in the town of Harrison is challenging an approved 148-unit senior (seasoned) citizen home. The builders have tried to appease these dissenters by reducing the original size of the project, which is to be built on an unused granite quarry.  

I question their challenge because when I ...

She had file envy

Who says paperwork is not sexy?! This week, I was so impressed (and even charmed) by the paperwork and systems of two different women. I was even a little envious. In the first case, my client Lois in Ardsley decided that it was time to get her paperwork in order. After six years of shifting paperwork, a dysfunctional home office, an international move and the purchase of a new home, she had HAD ...

Bias in Media, in Me, in You

While listening to an interview with a voter on my car radio, I thought I had excess ear wax that obstructed my hearing. The voter (whose name is Bruce) said this about one of the qualifications that a Senate or House candidate must have to earn his vote: “I don’t want anyone with ideas. We have enough of those already.”

I’m a journalist and have been one my entire ...

Cross My Legs and Hope to Die

One morning, I had a big cup of coffee as I usually do, and then I got in the car and drove 40 minutes to a clothing store I had been curious to check out. I don’t normally drive 40 minutes to go shopping, but since I am a stay-at-home mom and everyone knows we stay-at-home moms just spend our time shopping and eating bonbons, I figured, “What the hey.”

Having had the ...
