Since its opening in October 2009, the gallery has been embraced by the Bucerias Art Community and residents, and is sought out by travelers and international artists alike.
Mr. Wark continued: "The new location will provide additional space for exhibitions, workshops and educational programs. The gallery will also focus on providing greater exposure for environmental art and promoting environment-oriented organizations."
In addition to hosting group and solo exhibitions, Splurge Art Gallery's new space will include a dedicated area for beautiful hand-made jewellery.
Splurge Art Gallery is set to move into its new space, located at Calle Lazaro Cardenas 60 Col. Las Palmas Bucerias, Nayarit, Mexico, in October 2010.

This comes to my mind when I look at the paintings of Hem Raj. His paintings help us to reach a point of thinking through meditation,
a point of wordless and unintellectual understanding, which lie behind signs and symbols. His paintings lead us on a kind of tantric path,
a path that combines meditation with consciousness. Meditation, the means of reaching a world beyond thinking, is an important concern
of the artist. His paintings are meant to bring piece for the onlooker and the painter. They should be a sublime representation of feeling
beyond thinking. Thus you could attain “Anand”, eternal bliss, spiritual joy. Then only you could reach “anyatra dharmad anyatra adharmat”,
an ex-pression from the Upanishads that was used by Nietzsche for his highly influental work “Jenseits von Gut und Böse” (Beyond good and evil).

The Multipurpose Building, located in Anthony F. Veteran Park, at 11 Olympic Lane, Ardsley, NY houses program activities for Senior Citizens.Along the side of the building a rock with a plaque commemorates the lives lost in the September 11 attack on New York. Until the end of August 2010, one can also see, inside the corridors of the building, a painting by Biagio Gino Civale that stresses the smoke coming out of Ground Zero.
This work is part of a mini one-man exhibition by this Westchester artist, including thirteen paintings, oils, woodcuts and serigraphs. The variety of the subject matter is also reflected in the interest for decoration per se. (as per other image).
Marines, human figures and human activities are also depicted in the other works.
This exhibition is open to the public during the hours of operation of the building. For confirmation of access please call 914 693 8985. The Multipurpose Building is part of the Parks & Recreation Department, Office for the Aging.

Scream Gallery is proud to present Pakpoom Silaphan’s solo show, featuring new works from his Coca-cola series.
Using vintage Coca-cola and Pepsi advertising signs as his canvas, Silaphan creates portraits of influential people using collage and illustration with marker pen and emulsion. High-profile figures including John Lennon, Che Guevera and The Queen populate the signs, making a clear connection between icons and the advertising industry. Silaphan takes Warhol’s elevation of everyday brands to high art, and combines it with his adoration of famous figures. The power of advertising and corporate branding is demonstrated by the infiltration of Coca-Cola, Pepsi etc. to countries outside Western culture.
As a child in rural Thailand, Silaphan amassed a collection of advertising signs, which he found in the street. The rediscovery of the collection as an adult was the seed of this new collection. During his childhood, Silaphan came across Western icons such as Elvis Presley, Andy Warhol and Muhammad Ali, but had little knowledge of them, initially thinking Warhol was a scientist because of his messy hair.
In a world obsessed with superficial looks, where Warhol’s prophecy of ‘15 minutes of fame’ has become a reality to millions of YouTube ‘stars’ and X Factor contestants, Silaphan’s emphasis is firmly on the true contemporary icons, the people who made a significant impact on our culture.
Celebrity is really just a word. The people who not only find fame, but also learn the power of influence, and in doing so, make a huge impact on our culture - these are the icons to me. Pakpoom Silaphan, July 2010
Silaphan studied fine art at Silpakorm University in Thailand, and worked in advertising for a period, before moving to London to continue his studies. He took a Post-graduate course in print making at Camberwell College of Art, and an MA in Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art. Silaphan has exhibited internationally with shows in the USA, France and Italy, and featured in ‘My Private Collection’ with Grayson Perry, David Hockney, Shephard Fairey and Banksy, at the Paul Smith Gallery in Tokyo in 2009. He has had three solo shows at the Apart Gallery, and an exhibition ‘Establishing Establishment’ at Salon Gallery in 2009.
