Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander II and Crown Princess Katherine attended a Lifeline New York Cocktail Party humanitarian event in aid of school supplies and winter clothes for orphanages in Serbia at the Fridman Gallery in New York City last night. The event was organised by Lifeline New York Humanitarian Organization and HRH Crown Princess Katherine is the patron.
Paintings of famous Serbian artists from four generations were at display in the Fridman Gallery: Ljubomir Ljuba Ivanovic, member of the Serbian Royal Academy of Arts, his student Ljubica Cuca Sokic, member of the Serbian Academy of science and arts (SANU), Dusko Stojanovic, contemporary artist from Novi Sad and Sandra Vucicevic, who lives and works in the United States.
...The “Make It In America” expo, showcasing products and businesses that call Queens home, was held at the shopping center last Saturday. The event was organized by U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-Flushing)
Artist Sandra Vucicevic was also at the expo, continuing her project “Brush Votes – Creating The Creator.”
As someone walks by, Vucicevic offers the brush and asks to paint a straight line on the canvas. Then, you write your initials on a separate canvas, which allows her to keep track of how many have contributed to the project.
According to Vucicevic, her project is aimed at getting the public involved in a piece of art as opposed to only looking at what the artist has created.
“The point is to include the community in this project and make them feel like an artist,” said Vucicevic, who is based in Long Island City and lives in Briarwood.
She has taken her project throughout Queens, including at a community arts day last month in Kew Gardens, and will host another “brush votes” performance in Long Island City later this month.

“Do you want to participate in a performance?” Sandra Vucicevic asked a passerby on a picture-perfect fall day in Kew Gardens last Sunday.
“I’m not artistic,” the woman hesitated, looking at the offered paintbrush covered in a cheerful green.
“It doesn’t matter, it’s a community art project,” Vucicevic explained.
“Oh, why not,” the woman’s friend said, taking the offered brush and tracing the paint on a canvas which bore the marks of several dozen other participants.
Sandra Vucicevic looks on as two passersby add brush strokes to her project, Brush Votes.
This is exactly the kind of exchange the Vucicevic was looking for. Her most recent project, Brush Votes, is a performance piece where members of the community place a single stroke of paint onto a canvas, allowing the audience to become the artist while Vucicevic looks on.
The Queens Art Council is sponsoring Sandra’s project, but one would think that the idea was developed just for Sunday’s Kew Gardens Community Arts Festival, which had art and artists peeking out of corners and taking over intersections in an effort to showcase the creative talent that is in abundance in the neighborhood – and borough...
An exhibition of paintings by Sandra Vucicevic opened in the premises of the Consulate General of the Republic of Serbia in New York, on 5 September, in the presence of a large number of visitors. The event is entitled "Abstract Space" and comprises paintings made by applying a mixed technique on canvas.
Sandra Vucicevic graduated from the Belgrade Faculty of Law and earned a degree in painting at Hunter College in New York, where she has been living since 2005. During the evening, visitors had the opportunity to take part in the performance called "The creation of a collective artist," leaving their brush strokes on canvas and thus creating a joint painting.
