Rehs Contemporary Galleries in New York will be hosting an exciting 2013 exhibit featuring Timothy W.

The exhibit, carrying the intriguing title of "The Big Gamble", will be the first significant concentration of works in the New York area from The Ani Art Academies former alumni and current apprentices.
