Perfect Pleasure: Ruby Silvious' Exhibition at Albany Institute of History and Art, through August 30, 2020

Recycled and Refashioned: The Art of Ruby Silvious reminds us that art must be seen in person. Even if today's digital approximations satisfy our curiosity, the artwork itself cannot be known, unless, of course, the work was meant to be only a digital image. Ruby Silvious' magnificently painted teabags, books, eggshells, kimonos, and whimsical pistachio nutshells require careful study. The textures and colors offer the eye such pleasure, lingering over every detail.  The creativity and beauty in every millimeter make this substantial show even grander. There is so much to see and savor.   

Ruby Silvious' show opened on January 25th and closed in March during the Covid-19 shutdown.  Fortunately, New York State museums opened on July 25th.  The Albany Institute of History and Art is housed in a beautiful building with plenty of space for social distancing. Visits require a timed ticket. And don't forget your mask! It's required.  NB: the show ends definitively on Sunday, August 30th.

Days open are Wednesday through Saturday, 10 am - 5 pm.  Sunday, 12 noon - 5 pm..  Please make an effort to see Ruby Silvious' Albany Institute exhibition as soon as possible.The pilgrimage is worth it!

A Home Swap deal is divided into two categories, one is the simultaneous exchange, and the other being the non-simultaneous exchange. a short-term house swap is in huge demand. The housing swap also has a myriad of perks over the conventional hotel stay. Firstly, the holiday exchange is free, convenient, and tremendous opportunities to explore.

When I first heard about herbal remedy I never believe on such word until i had an encounter with a great traditional herbalist that was introduced to me by a friend that suffered from same genital herpes and was cure by this same man so I decided to contact him too to help get rid of my genital herpes virus I got from my cheating boyfriend.. All I was told to provide was just some useful information and some bush leaves, tree roots. He got them by himself and prepared the natural herbal cure and sent it to me with a tree roots branch to chew, which I did for two week according to him. In a month the pains and the sore were gone, my skin was glowing which I haven't experienced in a long long doctor said what happened to me is a miracle but I never told him I had herbal medication from Africa because he wouldn't approve it. My advice to all herpes patience is you should seek the right herbal remedy and put an end to that virus. Contact this herbalist today on Email or visit his website

I know this is strange to believe because there’s no cure for herpes virus and that was my belief until my friend from Africa introduced me to a traditional herbalist! We talked and he asked me questions about how I felt. Then he sent me a bottle of herbal medication and a tree root which I took for almost two weeks. Firstly the pain were gone I wasn’t experiencing any signs of the virus again I was so happy and nervous I couldn’t go back to my medical doctor for checkup because I was strong and okay that way cos I know deep down my heart that I was cured of herpes until I later went to the hospital to check and the results was miraculous. Contact Excel today if you are in the same situation visit his web call him +1 (859) 429 1007
