All artists participating in I'm Inside, Ring the Bell were asked to provide a list of 26 women of importance, whose names were to be inscribed on the floor, in the middle of the triangular table.

I tried to come up with a list of women I didn't actually know much about so here's my 26 women in space. Eilene Marie Galloway, the last lady on the list, helped create Nasa but never flew in space herself.

view-londonI was thrilled to read this extremely positive review about the Power and Passion show by View London! It ends with "...so head to the Power and Passion exhibition and educate yourself on Bulgarian culture whilst being blown away by some amazing artwork." But you know what? I think it's worth reading from the start, and you can do so here: http://www.viewlondon.co.uk/whatson/power-and-passion-exhibition-london-feature-4515.html

We were so excited that the Editor of The Resident Magazine decided to personally bring us a few copies of the October Issue at the Power and Passion Private View! She had chosen to featured these 2 images below together, because of the clear connection she could see between my father's arwork and mine! 

She tweeted: "Really enjoyed the Power and Passion exhibit at the Sofia Gallery. Ivan Minekov and daughter show their work side by side, just beautiful."
