Studio in the Street: Symbols - Totems - Cyphers
Apr 29-Jun 14 2019 - 23 days left
In the early 1980s, New York City vibrated with an alternative art scene that played itself out on the streets and vacant lots throughout the city. A wave of talent took to creating an exhilarating intersection of art and life. As the scene moved from the periphery of the art world to its center, these artists retained the energy of the street while creating a new and dynamic vision. This important overview of Street Art will feature works by Keith Haring and Richard Hambleton as well Scot Borofsky, Ken Hiratsuka, Angel Ortiz, Robin Van Arsdol, Bob Dombrowski, Kevin Wendall (FA-Q), and Paolo Buggiani.

SaySay.Love : Water
Apr 29-May 31 2019 - 9 days left
Art uses water as a mirror for the interplay between abstraction and reality. Whether at rest or in motion, colorless or iridescent - the nature of water triggers emotions. In his photographs, SaySay.Love celebrates the beauty of water and everything that hides and is reflected in it. Movements and colors are juxtaposed, meet, attract, or fall apart. SaySay.Love amplifies the moment in which he changes light or shadow with the possibilities of iPhones - he turns on garish or pastel-colored elements - he changes reality like a painter until it corresponds to his experienced moment.
Marcia Grostein : Brighton Beach Project - The World as it Should Be
May 01-May 31 2019 - 9 days left
Marcia Grostein's Brighton Beach Project stands as a testament to the possibility of harmonious coexistence between diverse populations. Comprised of intimate yet unabashed beachgoer portraits, the series reveals a rare intermingling of races, religions, relationships, and body types that characterizes the ocean-side community of Brighton Beach. Together, these photographs present an alternative to the divisiveness currently propagated by many socio-political groups and leaders.
