Jason Florio : Tabla Rasa Gallery, Brooklyn - group show ‘Equus’ - opening reception last night. The gallery took two pieces, after seeing Herouna (with his white horse) in Flo’s solo exhibition at Rush Arts/Corridor Gallery last month - one from our ‘A Short Walk in the Gambia Bush’, 2009, expedition and one from our very recent River Gambia Expedition. If you get a chance, check out the exhibit - there is some beautiful artwork on display.
