Thursday, October 10, 2013
Hey all, check out this great little promotional video our intern Alessandra Hoshor made for us! Conor Backman's Diorama opens tonight from 6–8, see you all there!
Wednesday, October 09, 2013It's that time of the month again! #Installation
As of yesterday, Sonya's work is down but do not shed a tear. Conor is currently installing away his first solo exhibition with Mixed Greens. *fanfare*
Here's the obligatory artist-installing-the-show photo.
Here is our intern Delaney rocking a jump suit while painting the walls white. I think her rocking a jumpsuit deserves a hashtag nod.
The show is looking great so far. Here's a sneak peak of the show.
Meanwhile in the state of Texas, Steven is also installing away! He is currently down in Houston for the Texas Contemporary Art Fair 2013. Steven sent some photos of the installation process, and it seems like he wanted us to play a round of Spot the Difference.
So that is all for today readers. Don't forget to come to our opening on Thursday 6-8pm and if you're down in Houston please say hello to Steven!
Deinstalling Sonya Blesofsky's Renovation
Monday, October 07, 2013Everything inevitably comes to an end, Sonya's most recent show Renovations being no exception. Rob is currently patching away the walls and columns while Sonya is taking down the paper sculptures.
If you haven't seen the show (shame on you), make sure to read the fantastic review of the show written by Darren Jones. You can read the article here.
Meanwhile, we have received Conor Backman's new work today morning! Stay tuned for more photos of our staff and the artist installing tomorrow!

Painting Towards Happiness by Franklin Vivray
Friday, October 04, 2013
Jayson Musson aka Hennesy Youngman is now Franklin Vivray. In his new series called "Painting towards Happiness," Jayson channels his inner Bob Ross and absolutely nails it. Franklin Vivray talks about a variety of topics within art -- how it is perfectly acceptable to paint from photos now, how painting is NOT dead as long as mother nature still sings, how modern art is garbage, how Kafka is the worst, and how there is no wrong way to paint a feeling, all the while painting luscious, rolling hills with a minty green and a tree trunk with brown straight out of the tube.
Okay enough talking, just watch it. I've already watched it a thousand times. It is SO GOOD.
