Onishi Gallery is proud to present Emi Uchida in a solo show, Trace. In this exhibition, Uchida presents a new body of art in which she builds on the beautiful colors in her former work by adding charcoal lines on top of her colorful oil paintings. Her paintings use fresh and transparent colors echoing watercolor. Her process of laying lines is a way of finding herself through her paintings, which represent both her body and her soul.
Whether Uchida’s charcoal lines are thick, thin, quick, slow, strong or delicate, each stroke makes her aware of the passage of time and the singularity of each moment. Uchida considers her lines a trace of both herself and time; each line on the canvas is different and is impossible to replicate. When Uchida’s lines are piled on each canvas, they merge into one unified plane.

The Strand Bookstore, a New York institution since 1927, has one of the largest, most comprehensive collections of photography books in the world. The Strand has partnered with Aperture and Pratt Institute Center for Continuing and Professional Studies (CCPS), to host a photography contest, Eye on the Strand.

A group exhibit Pratt CCPS Gallery in the summer of 2009 will include all of the winning images.
Aperture, Pratt, and the Strand will host a reception with Aperture photographers at the Strand Bookstore to celebrate their work and launch the contest.

- The colorful, veggie chips: amazing taste combined with a colorful presence, excellent for parties as it matches the colors with crispy bites! http://www.terrachips.com/
- The favorite, now, Belgian waffles, Wafels and Dinges, despite the long line (and the rude people waiting), waffles came here and will stay for a while in New York
- Various new nut butters that mix nuts with spices and herbs (like coriander with hazelnut and almond butter from Marilyn's Nut Butters)
- The mini pumpkin cheese cake offered by the Tavern on the Green restaurant, buttery but not fatty, a well-deserved dessert or just a fun bite
- The design water bar (read next posting)
As for the chocolate show, I would make a note for:
- the chocolate dipped chip by Divalicious, an amazing for a first timer taste despite the guarantee for higher cholesterol levels
- a rich but nutty chocolate brand (Berkshire Bark) for those who love nuts and chocolate. Try the Midnight Harvest, a combination of Belgian dark chocolate, roasted almonds and hazelnuts, dried cranberries and fresh orange zest, a Real Poem of taste!
- the arrogant presence of the World Famous Chocolates but without samples (I really wanted to try the famous Callebaut, which actually did during the wine and chocolate pairing seminar).
With my stomach full and my taste satisfied, I have to say that Food Festivals are indeed an invitation for the senses but a challenge for moderation. Despite my good intentions, I can't still manage moderation - maybe this will be my goal for the next Tastings festival. Who knows, I may succeed!
