Inwood Hill: Bald Eagle Watch

Birding: Bald Eagle Watch

Saturday, February 10, 2024

10:30 a.m.12:00 p.m.

New York City is home to an amazing abundance of wildlife. Our Urban Park Rangers will guide you to the best wildlife viewing spots. Throughout the winter, many Bald Eagles from upstate will fly south to NYC to hunt along the open, unfrozen sections of the Hudson River. On our walk we will hopefully be able to observe some of these mighty raptors soaring above the river or perched along the forest scouring for fish to prey upon!

Buunni Coffee Pinehurst: Francis Hsueh

Since my solo show began on January 5, I’ve been taking the opportunity to visit the shop on a daily basis. I’ve had so many wonderful conversations and I am gratified that my art has inspired curiosity (people often mistake them for photographs) and nostalgia for some of the subjects I’ve captured.

Please come and say hi. I’m usually at Buunni between 7-8am or around 12pm. I’d love to give you a personal tour of the exhibit and also hear how they might resonate with you. All of my works are for sale, and you can view the Exhibition Catalog here. If you see something you like, email me at info@art-francis.com. (A red dot at the show means the artwork has been sold already).

And remember to enter the weekly raffle! I’m giving away a 5×7 print every week until the end of the show. To enter, go to this Reel on my Instagram page for instructions!.

My solo show lasts until the end of February. See you there!
