Monsoon Gallery, Bethlehem, PA

Monsoon Gallery Becomes Pennsylvania Art Representative

What does the city of Bethlehem have in common with Chicago, Santa Fe, Denver, and San Francisco? Each of these cities are representing their state in a National conceptual art project that is connecting the entire U.S. through art. Ranjeet Pawer, Art Director of Monsoon Galleries, recently met with Kristin Abraham and Alfonso Llamas to make Bethlehem, Pennsylvania the 36th city involved in The Nomadic Project. Monsoon Gallery, located on East 3rd Street, will be displaying the West Virginia-inspired painting until the end of 2006.

Each participating state displays a single canvas, that was inspired by a bordering state and painted by Kristin Abraham. She, along with musician, Alfonso Llamas, have been on the road for eleven months on their quest to unite fifty states through art. This body of work, in the making, will become part of a traveling exhibit in November of 2007.  

The Nomadic Project was created as a way to use art in inspiring and educating individuals about the land that we call America. In order to realize this goal, the artist's, Abraham and Llamas, fit their lives into a Honda Element and hit the road. When The Nomadic Project returns from Hawaii in mid-December, all fifty states will be displaying a painting from the series. Visit Monsoon Gallery to view "Montani Semper Liberi," or go to to find which city near you is participating in The Nomadic Project.

Abraham and Llamas also encourage participation by every state, as they finish their journey of the U.S.  Each email that they receive will become part of the final exhibit. Paintings can also be purchased by contacting Abraham (, or directly through participating galleries. The owner will receive an engraved nameplate to be displayed with their piece, as well as a signed print to display as their painting tours the U.S.

To learn more about The Nomadic Project, log on to and view images from each state. Also, keep an eye out for the four dimensional exhibit, showcasing the complete series of paintings, music and journal entries. This show is planned to begin in November of 2007 and travel in the path of The Nomadic Project. For information regarding Monsoon Gallery visit , or call Ranjeet Pawer at 610.866.6600.
