Queens is a very diverse borough where there are people from all over the world representing many different cultures and personalities. There are 138 different languages spoken in Queens. While living in Queens you can’t help but notice how all these cultures intermingle and people from one culture try out new traditions from another. The Lonely Planet stated that “nowhere is the image of New York as the global melting pot truer than Queens.”
This exhibition explores the individual experience of immigrant artists living and working in Queens.

Pavida grew up in a family that surrounded her with art and music. Pavida enrolled at the Art Student League of New York .
Moving from representational painting, the recent abstraction of her artwork present texture, stoke, simplicity of line, geometric form, color, monochrome and contrasts. Her objective is to reveal the voice of the subconscious through imagery. Each painting reveals transient nature of the world around us in everyday life. Through her designs she hope to create harmony from the conflicts and contradiction of the world all around us. Because she both paints and composes music, each of her paintings relate to a music
perception. Each painting has sound, each composition has color within. In her own words "Art and Music are alike, we can see with our ears and hear with our eyes, that's all there is to it!”
