Over 25,000 people on Facebook have been sent invites. New York Animal Rights Alliance America, a strongly dedicated global group of animal rescuers, advocates and activists plan the largest Rally and Protest for NYC and is slated for Saturday June 22, 2013 from 4pm - 6pm for the outdoor rally and protest. Then animal advocates from 6pm- 11pm will then congregate at the Five Star Banquet Hall located at 1305 43rd Ave, (21st Street), Long Island City, Queens, NY to hear various animal activists and expert speakers educate the public about the costly and inhumane treatment animals endure in the NYC animal pound system, including the fact that there are no shelters for the homeless, abandoned and abused animals for the Queens and Bronx communities. The message is stop killing our innocent animals. These precious animals need laws for their rights to humane care and treatment, sanitary facilities, competent human care, vetted treatments on site and a call out to our legal system to put in place laws that protect and give animals their own legal right and to have any group and. or individuals who abuse, neglect, harm, maime, torture and or kill innocent animals should be punished to the highest degree by our legal system.

Come meet and join animal activist, rescuer Kay Riviello, founder of New York Animal Rights Alliance America on June 22, 2013 from 4pm-11pm, as she sets out to create the largest gathering in the NYC area of animal lovers, advocates, rescuers and activists for a day of education, entertainment and solidarity for " the awareness of " " the protection of " " the demands of " a society that is broken by the costly, ineffective, antiquated and inhumane care of our homeless, thrown away precious innocent animals.

Ms. Riviello has been rescuing animals in distress, mostly dogs and cats, for over the past two decades, putting herself in harms way to save severely abused, exploited, inhumanely discarded innocent animals, even those left dying or dead. With the realization that animals have no legal rights set in place in our United States legal system, Ms. Riviello has set out to became the voice for the countless helpless voiceless animals as she follows case after case of legal investigations through our court system and her personal involvement with rescues that leads to her discoveries that animal abuse and animal abusers are a pervasive and hidden atrocity which is clearly against our deepest humanity, especially for the American population who view their domesticated pets as an important deeply loved part of their family unit- as a part of their beloved family. Crimes against innocent defenseless animals mostly go unpunished, ignored or deafened. But some still hear their screams.....

Advocating for not only stronger legislation for animal abuse and their humane rights, but adherence to place such laws in our governing and court systems is Ms. Riviello's focused unrelenting goal, which a very complex task, if it wasn't wouldn't there be an end to the endless thousands of unmerciful exterminations of our cats and dogs who are held hostage in hallways of hell. It is easy to turn our eye's away from unspeakable hidden crimes of what is considered a lesser species- isn't it....???

Ms. Riviello will not let that continue any longer. She continues to gather the people and speak out and campaign for the rights of all living animals and bring to light the hardships that these innocent beings endure at the hands of their trusted owners- us- human beings- and the despicably run New York City pound system, including the lack of shelters desperately needed in boroughs of Queens and the Bronx. There has to be a better way and Kay Riviello is determined to find that way.

Andrew Kinsman Solo Show - 'Fragile'

Private View 27th June 6 - 9pm
Open 28th June - 13th July 2013

Andrew Kinsman is one of those fortunate people who are very talented indeed practioners in more than one art form. As well as being a hugely accomplished artistwith a burgeoning career, he is also a very successful saxophonist, performing with some very big names such as Noel Gallagher and Kasabian.
 
Andy_pic-cr.jpgHowever recently Andrew has been devoting the bulk of his time to his painting in the build up to his first solo show at Signal and also in response to an extremely prestigious commission from the Royal Mail. The brief for this commission was to paint a large group portrait of the 'Dream Team' to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Football Association. The individual players were then featured in a set of commemorative stamps, which were released in May 2013. This has led to a lot of media attention and press interviews for the artist, proving to be an ideal springboard for his first major solo show in London.
 
The new show is called 'Fragile' and finds the artist exploring a theme that has fascinated him for some time - the painting of bubbles. As well as the technical challenges posed for the painter, Kinsman sees the potent symbolism represented by the beauty and the momentary existence of bubbles, as echoing our own 'fragile' lives. To set the scene for the body of work the artists says - I felt that to have a chance of capturing some worthwhile moments, I would need to escape from my everyday environment. The bubble itself seemed to convey a sense of escapism and ephemeral beauty, so rather than having my subjects visit my studio for a series of formulated images, I decided to relocate to Paris. This relocation helped the artist dislocate from familiar patterns in his own life and seek out a new poetry and meaning in his painting.
 
In this new body of work, Kinsman's photorealist style has moved away from the purely representational. A wide variety of settings have been used, which creates a richly textured backdrop for the portraits. Some of them have the spontaneous feel of a chance encounter, while others imply a more intense relationship between model and artist. Weaving their delicate way through all the pieces, are the ever-present bubbles.
