Eunice presents solo exhibition, Soundtracks : Freestyle in NYC

Within the depths of some of Chelsea's most beautiful art galleries, Eunice Kindred showcased a unique body of work at Rogue Space | Chelsea Gallery Thursday night from 6:30-9:00pm, that left the audience in complete awe.

Entitled Soundtracks: Freestyle Part One, Eunice's culture series featured a new body of work exploring a collaboration of painting and music, which was followed by a special performance piece by Eunice Kindred herself.

Promptly starting at 6:30pm, guests were greeted with passed hors d'oeuvres provided by La Table Exquise which included baby cucumbers stuffed with herb cream cheese mousse, shrimp and tobiko caviar prosciutto crostini with mozzarella di buffula, pesto and black olives, mini avocado and leek mousse cups, heirloom tomato, and mini chocolate mousse cakes. 

As guests walked the room to preview pieces from Eunice's collection, they were encouraged to listen to select soundtracks which ultimately inspired each piece. Less than an hour into the exhibition, the room was filled with an array of guests which included, Vin Baker from the Milwaukee Bucks, ESPN correspondent Lindsay McCormick, and super model Max Tapper, Nina Ferrer of HGTV's Design Star, Claire Sulmers of Fashion Bomb Daily, to some of NYC's biggest socialites and tastemakers.

The true highlight from the evening was Eunice's beautiful performance piece accompanied by violinist Jordan Ware. The vibe within the room was serene as all eyes were fixed on Eunice. The performance piece track was an original mix to Rihanna's "Diamonds" lead by Jordan Ware. Eunice then spoke about her journey after being displaced during Hurricane Sandy and her determination to complete the collection of artwork. A special thank you was provided to her many supporters and backers from Kickstarter. 

The night continued with complimentary wine, music, and gift bags provided by Canvas4Life, Scented, and Hint water, in custom Eunice Kindred Soundtracks:Freestyle Part One tote bags.
