Many of us who work at the Scholastic Awards are artists and writers, including our interns! We’re proud to announce that artist Sazia Afrin will have three works on display in a NYC gallery starting tomorrow. Sazia, who has been working with us for two years, is also a fine arts student at Queens College and noticed a call for paintings by BLVCK SOVL Gallery, a pop-up gallery on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Go Sazia!

“I filled out the application as soon as I read it,” Sazia admitted, “at about one in the morning!” She submitted several paintings and heard shortly afterward that three of them would be exhibited for a week—from January 18th –January 24th. Visitors must RSVP to gain entrance, and though opening night is full, the painting shown above, Essence, and two others will be on view all week.

Here are the details:

What and who: Three new paintings by artist and Scholastic Awards intern Sazia Afrin

Where:  BLVCK SOVL (Black Soul) Gallery, 65 Mott Street #16

When: January 18 through January 24

RSVP: You must email to attend. Admission is free!
