UPCOMING SHOWS:

I'M LOVING IT

October 28th 2012 from 6-9 pm at 652 Meeker Ave, Brooklyn NY.
Organized by Pete Watts and Grayson Cox

In the spirit of gypsy caravans, tailgate parties, flea-meets, and car clubs, we are thrilled to announce
I'm Loving It, a one-night-only, mobile gallery district temporarily congregating in an empty parking lot
in the sleepy, industrial intersection of Greenpoint, Williamsburg and Bushwick between Staples and
McDonald's. A view of this parking lot from the street transports passer-bys into "anywhere USA", while
the view from the parking lot reveals a scene that is unmistakably Brooklyn. Artists and curators will
create a one-night exhibition platform that links these two cultural vistas through something close to the
heart of the American identity: the car.
Please join us Sunday, October 28th from 6-9 pm at 652 Meeker Ave, Brooklyn NY.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Rich and Cultivated | A Group Exhibition

SARDINE

is pleased to announce RICH AND CULTIVATED, a group
exhibition curated by Sanders Watson. Participating artists include Todd
Carignan, Michael Cline, Ed Flanagan, Jacob Goble, Jen Harris, Daina Higgins,
Kurt Kauper, Matt Mahler, Nathania Rubin, and Joel Stotts. There will be two
exhibitions over a period of two months with receptions on October 12th, 6 - 8 pm
and November 9th, 6 - 8 pm.

Taking into consideration the process and practice of each participant, the
work represents a departure from the ubiquitous pressures often placed on
artists to develop continuity within their work. Usually resulting in a personal
and recognizable style connecting each piece, artists can be influenced by
the market, institutional expectation, gallery preference, or collector biases.
Artists often maintain this specific way of working throughout their career
with little diversion from this path. The above can be summarized as the
artists “audience”, which Clement Greenberg refers to in his often exhausted
article Avant-Garde and Kitsch, as the “rich and cultivated”. Begging us to
ask “who do we make artwork for” we should consider the task carefully as
its effects are often unavoidable and invisible to the conscious, ultimately
interpreting the artists identity.

Sardine is located on the ground floor of 286 Stanhope Street between Wyckoff
and Irving Avenue in Bushwick. It is a quick walk from the Dekalb L train.

Sardine is open on Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 6 or to schedule an
appointment during the week, please email sardinebk@gmail.com.

----**----**----**----**----**----**----**----**----**----**----**----**---

I will be in a group show called "Small Black Show" at the Small Black door Gallery in Ridgewood, Queens.
Opening Reception: Friday April 29th from 6-?

http://www.smallblackdoor.com/

Small Black Door is a project space located in Ridgewood, Queens. Artists Jonathan Terranova and Matthew Mahler founded the space in late 2010 with the intention of bringing emerging artists and thinkers together. Located in the basement of a diverse Queens neighborhood, Small Black Door physically embodies the challenge of a new generation of artists in their quest to explore alternative venues and ideas within an established art system.
