the reImagining is on BronxNet!

I apologize to my poor neglected blog! It's been way too long since I touched base! But good news, I just did my first television spot in support of the reImagining! It was nerve wracking, but very fun!

We had such a blast, and the host Rhina was so cool!

Fun on the set of Open!

The Debuts are just the beginning....

The past six weeks have been like a dream! It has taken me five years to get nine photographs on a wall, but every single moment of those five years was worth it! Being able to finally debut the first stories from the reImagining - on both the east and west coasts - has only made me more determined to make sure all 100 stories are told! Although I could not physically be there for the Women in Art - HerStories exhibit, the exhibition pictures tell a story of an amazing exhibition at the LH Horton Jr. Art Gallery at San Joaquin Delta College in Stockton, CA. I have to give a special thanks to Yolanda Rodriguez of the BxArts Factory  for her inclusion of the reImagining in the amazing Innuendos exhibition held at the Andrew Freedman Home in the Bronx. It was so amazing to have my work shown with so many inspiring female artists from the Bronx. The artist panel discussion for the reImagining at Innuendos definitely got heated - but in a good way! A special thanks to the models that sat on the panel with me to tell their stories! Finally, the closing reception for Innuendos allowed us to hear from the all of the artist that participated in the exhibition with art performances that blew my mind! The reImagining is just getting started! I was so fortunate to be able to participate in these two exhibitions and so happy to have the narratives of the models brought forth for discussion. We are just getting started, so please continue to support the effort and continue to keep an out for more exhibitions!

Thanks for the flowers Brian and Andy!

The reImagining Speaks: Model #12 CharLena Pearson-Fulcher

The reImagining Speaks is a video series that gives voice to the women lending their images to the reImagining. This series allows you to hear for yourself why this project is so important to me and these 100 women. Listen closely:

 

Who is CharLena Pearson-Fulcher?  I am a writer, performer, and entrepreneur.  All of those my the world of reality makes me a risk-taker. I’m a believer in divining what I want and then going after it, which in the so-called “real world” is defined as being risky.  I am an intelligent, driven, energetic, funny, loving, healthy, vivacious, prosperous and compassionate individual.  I have three new wedding books coming out this year and my competition, that I founded (the Wedding Cake Taste-Off) in 2011,  for the emerging baker will have a 2nd outing this year in Manhattan.  I feel blessed to be alive in this day and time and fully expect to take advantage of living in these times.

The reImaginging Speaks is now on TWIB!

It is my distinct pleasure to announce the reImagining Speaks is getting a louder voice! Starting today I will be penning a new blog series highlighting the videos and the themes of the reImagining! Please check out the first installment and make sure to leave a comment and spread the word on your social networks! Stay tuned in ladies as we get the word out about this amazing project!

the reImagining Salon #2: The conversation is growing!

The conversations just keep getting better and better! The focus of this conversation was health: physical, spiritual, and emotional. A huge thanks to our guest speakers Model #57 Shonda Brown, Model #24 Wendy Petties, and Alamesh from the Baha'i Center. Another humble thanks to the amazing Baha'i Center for opening your doors to the project. See you all in June!

Our very first reImagining Salon!

Honestly words can not describe how amazing this night was for me - so I will let our resident genius videographer Aulistar Mark demonstrate his skills with this amazing recap of an extraordinary night:

A huge thank you to BFB Architect and Balance Integration for letting us meet in your beautiful office space!
