Adam and Alicia Rico, the cute couple who owns Bows and Arrows.
this was from their Brooklyn wedding which appears in the Knot,
New York this month!

Matt's instillation shots of Bows and Arrows show.

it's a girl (for my brother!)

so excited for my brother and sister-in-law,
they are having a little girl this summer!

Goal King

i did this a long time ago, for a show in London!
i love the soccer ball.
'goal king' is referring to my sponsor child, Adam Inusah, as he was referred to as ' goal king ' by his team mates, for scoring SO MANY GOALS!
way to go adam. this piece is dedicated to you!
love you!

Bows and Arrows opening!

WHAT a fun event! we had a SUPER turnout! thanks to everyone who made it! wish i'd gotten pics with everyone who came, but it got a little crazy there, for a minute!
loved catching up with everybody and seeing friends at the show.
Bows and Arrows was awesome. the next show, (Alicia and Adam Rico, owners) is the 20th of Feb, so there is still time to catch ours. it'll be up for almost a month!
Matt's i phone polaroids are only $20. get them while they're still there and i have some studies that are $100!

time lapse of installation

Matt & Mary Emma Hawthorne Art Show Installation from Matt Hawthorne on Vimeo.

installing at Bows and Arrows...

this process took 7 hours. but we got it done, at about 1 pm last night!
the show looks good. so come on by tomorrow night for the opening!
hope to see ya'll there!

"Dios te bendiga"

"God Bless You" in espanol
( i have found that i have recently been in elevators with, have been served by waiters, or have had workmen at the apartment that mostly speak spanish )
SO i thought it'd be good to learn what God Bless You in in spanish and end our conversation, brief or extended, with that rather that Adios.

so the new phrase,
"Dios te Bendiga"

hope that is correct... :/

i think i'll say "Vaya con Dios" instead!
my friend told me it means, "go with God".
