EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR AWARD
The Model Icon Fashion Show took place historic Palmer House Hilton in downtown Chicago. During the show. I was awarded the Educator of the Year Award. This is a tremendous honor for me and it is truly gratifying that my efforts to educate the youth about neurobiology and art are recognized.
Interest in education is not limited to Chicago -- this award caught the attention of fashion critics in Lithuania. A very nice write-up appeared in Lithuanian National Radio and Televison (LRT). The Lithuanian language text can be read here and the English translation here. This article was reprinted in the Chicago newspaper Draugas (Friend). The Lithuanian text is here and the English translation here.
Spellbound in Silk was featured during New York Fashion Week:
This collection was also featured during the Allegro Fashion Show in Lemont, IL:
Art of quality affects the viewer emotionally, psychologically and intellectually. When such pieces can also be experienced through softness, warmth, touch--then they become magical. My medium is silk. My latest series is Spellbound in Silk.
For over thirty years I have been both a professional artist and a neurologist-neuroscientist. I have been artistically exploring the origins of thinking, of consciousness. How is it that we are aware of ourselves, of others? How is it that social interactions, culture, and civilizations arise? Basically, what is it that makes us human? These silk works of art, just as my previous pieces, have multiple overlapping, interweaving layers of content, meaning and visual elements. Complexity of their design matches the complexity of our own thought processes.
With these scarves I am taking art off gallery and museum walls and making it available to use and enjoy. There is no better way to experience spellbinding art than by handling it, placing it next to your face, feeling it's softness and warmth. The artistic content of each scarf blends with your own inner being.
