Ezra and Zoe have a very talented ‘zia Maria’. Not only is she a great photographer (who incidentally photographed our wedding), but has now started a line of products with her whimsically painted women on them! She shows her “SERIES OF PASTEL DRAWINGS BASED ON THE INSPIRATION OF THE FEMALE IMAGE” at Cafe Nadery in the West Village – and the opening is this coming Thursday, October 10th 7:30-9:30 p.m.
Please stop by, or check out her website at by-mg.com!
