Call for Submission: Pre911/Twin Towers Once Stood at SB D Gallery in East Village on September 11, 2011.

The 10th anniversary of the tragic event of 911 in New York City that stole many precious lives and also granted security among New Yorkers is nearing with much of evaporating emotions in layers of sorrows, pain and hope for healing.

Three years ago, SB D Gallery curated and directed the first exhibition that stopped the life of Twin Towers as of September 10th, 2001, in effort to heal from the wound by bringing back the happy memories of Twin Towers before the terror.

As a closure, “Pre911:Twin Towers Once Stood” will have the finale this year marching with a decade of struggles, and would love to have all or any of your participations with your personal messages in forms of arts. Photographs, drawings, paintings, poems, sculptures, mixed media… without limited to the medium, share your soul and spirit united as one, the human.

In addition to your qualified art works, the work of 46 international artists’ who participated last two years will be presented again and also multiple fabric banners will be printed with images and messages to be hung at next door gallery. Guests will walk through these ceiling high long banners to experience the memories of being inside or right in front of buildings.

The exhibition will open on September 11, 2011, at 4pm and runs for two weeks.

My hope, as a resident living in downtown of Manhattan for 21 years and at the time time, curator and director of SB D Gallery, is to accept the life that is beyond the control of morality, and go on with the life finding comfort leaning on each others. It will NEVER be forgotten, nor healed, and that sharp stabbing into our souls on that specific day of terror will be remembered with the deep scar.

Exhibition: “Pre911/Twin Towers Once Stood”
Location: SB D Gallery ( 125 East 4th Street NYC 10003
Time: September 11, 2011 – September 25, 2011
Opening Reception: September 11, 2011 from 4-8pm


Please submit your participation inquiry to [email protected] to receive the guide and contract.

Girls Night Out with Barbara Shaum, the East Village antique.

Barbara Shaum, now 81 years old, has been hand crafting custom fit leather sandals and belt in East Village for her entire life. She was one of first females allowed and served at McSorley’s Bar in 1970, and still is a very much active out-going girl^^

With two girls from Japan to promote Sumi Jo’s upcoming Concert at Carnegie Hall in November, we all chatted and gossiped subjects in girls’ interest while sitting outside of Nomad restaurant in East Village.

She claimed herself as the best ‘Barbara-cue’ when I offered to hang out at one of best Korean ‘barbecue’ restaurants together. Alright, she is more of ‘Barbara-cute’ to me^^


The sandal maker Barbara Shaum prefers to focus on her craft, not changing trends. (“So gladiator sandals are popular again?” she asked recently, only moderately curious.) Since opening her business in 1954, her technique has stayed pretty much the same. Customers still choose from about 30 classic styles and an assortment of skins; their feet are measured, patterns are drawn; a couple weeks later, there’s a fitting.

The age-old craft was taught to her by Menalkas Duncan, who learned it while visiting Greece with his aunt, Isadora. “I’m not really fashion-fashion,” Ms. Shaum, 79, said as an employee fielded a call from a Vogue editor. “I’m more traditional.”

Her sandals take four weeks to make (order now and have them by Memorial Day) and cost from $300 to $600 — a good deal, given their shelf life. “A woman came in here the other day who had her sandals for 30 years!” Ms. Shaum said, herself looking a little surprised.

Barbara Shaum, 60 East 4th Street; (212) 254-4250. Open Wednesday through Saturday, 1 to 6 p.m.

Andrew “the sweetest honey” at Tompkins Square Park: Andrew’s Local Honey

Andrew “the sweetest honey” at Tompkins Square Park: Andrew’s Local Honey

My question to Andrew,

“Which local honey should I get to cure allergy?”

“Manhattan honey is high in rent, Brooklyn honey got an attitude, and Connecticut honey has best schools”

replied Andrew.

I went with, of course, Manhattan honey^^

Andrew’s Taste-Bud Bursting Local Wildflower Honey can provide you with 100% pure, local, raw, kosher honey. His family has been keeping bees since at least the 1800’s, when Andrew’s great grandfather kept bees in northern Ontario, Canada. This is a small family business, and now all of our beehives are located right here in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Don’t be fooled by honey that has a local label but is actually honey from elsewhere in the country or the world.  They provide top quality local honey, pollen, and other products from the hive.

Local honey is well known to assist in allergy relief and is a rich source of antioxidants. Our honey is untouched by human hands. We remove it from the hives while it is in the frames, uncap it from the comb with a knife, spin out of the comb using centrifugal force, filter it through cloth to avoid wax particles, and bottle it. We do not pasteurize (heat treat) or tamper with in any way. It is exactly as the bees have been making it for millions of years. We are proud of our honey and invite you to try it. Eating local honey may help relieve the discomfort of seasonal allergies, because bees use pollen from local plants, which ends up in this honey. Honey contains vitamins, minerals, and amino acids and is a wonderful beauty aid that nourishes the skin and the hair. Our honey is loaded with antioxidants and acts as an antibacterial and antifungal agent and helps disinfect and speed the healing process in wounds, scrapes and burns. For the bees to make one pound of honey, they must collectively visit one million flowers and travel over 55,000 miles, which is farther than twice around the Earth. As ours is raw, unpasteurized, completely natural honey, the color and texture will vary from bottle to bottle, month to month, and nectar flow to nectar flow. Babies under 12 months should not consume honey. Do not refrigerate (either the honey or the babies). If honey crystallizes, place the uncapped container in warm water. Notification: No bees were harmed in the making of our honey, although Norm (father) and Michael and Andrew (Norm’s sons) each suffered some slightly painful stings.

To obtain fresher honey, you’d need to stick your hand in a hive (not recommended; you are much better off buying a bottle of ours).

E-mail us if you would like pollen, comb honey, royal jelly, royal jelly mixed in honey, bulk products, need a swarm of bees removed, would like a beehive on your property, or with any other honeybee related matter.

You can buy our honey at the following locations:

• Westport Farmers’ Market on Thursdays from 10AM – 3PM. Located in the Westport Country Playhouse parking lot on the Post Road in Westport.
• Greenwich Farmers’ Market off of Exit 3, I-95, on Saturdays from 9:30AM– 1PM.
• Abbondanzia (Westport) • Budding Gourmet (Fairfield) • Caraluzzi’s Food Mart (Bethel) • Darien Cheese and Fine Foods (Darien) • Greenwich Healthmart (Greenwich) • Norwalk Natural Foods (Norwalk) • Palmer’s Market (Darien) • The Pantry (Fairfield) • Plum (Cos Cob) • Porrecelli’s Food Mart (Cos Cob, Old Greenwich, Trumbull) • Rowayton Market (Rowayton) • The Soy Bean (Black Rock, Bridgeport) • Walter Stewart’s (New Canaan) • Whole Foods (Greenwich) • Wild Oats (Westport)

Or, e-mail Andrew at [email protected], and he will sort out your honey needs.
