    Another bright spot in the vicinity of Chinatown is Sohotel Art Space that had an opening reception last October 9th for embrace #ThisIsNotALetter that featured the works of Alex Kelleher. It consisted of photography, sculpture and a picture wall that guests had to interact with by taking selfie’s from a Polaroid camera. Working from the notion of real human connection Kelleher presented a body of work that is substantial in not only the theme but also in bolstering the soul. The vibe of the reception was loose and chill as everyone contemplated the vagaries of what are the things we embrace in our life. Art. Love. Goodness. Those are the embodiment of what one chooses to embrace. It is in the company of the art loving and creatively inclined that it is not a #hashtag ideal but the real attainable deal. Embrace what’s real!
