Alphabet of a Colored Man art exhibit at Birdsong Farm May 27th

Please join us on May 27th from 4 PM to 7 PM to celebrate the opening of Dave Ortiz’s solo show “Alphabet of a Colored Man” at Birdsong Farm. This new work joyfully brings full circle Ortiz’s creative trajectory from street art to fine art painting, exploring where the abstract and urban meet. Each of the thirteen paintings in the series features a letter, some obscured and some more clearly legible. Together, they spell a phrase, which the viewer is invited to decipher. Also on view are select Painted Wooden Objects.
