Don’t miss the upcoming talk with Art Curator Sara Lynn Henry and Sculptor Millicent Young Sat. April 27, 5:30pm at 11 Jane Street Art Center Posted @withrepost • @millicent.young A first encounter of sound, film, and movement.... When There Were Birds inspiring us: Meira Blaustein as creative film maker embarking on this new project; Timothy Hill, through voice and Steve Gorn with flute, meeting the silent forms and shaping the space into a sound field with breath; me as a moving body among the still forms I made. Each of us responding to the field as we created it. Sublime. Unfolding ✨✨✨ #MillicentYoung #Sculpture #WhenThereWereBirds

Richard Bosman's solo show "High Anxiety" opens with an artist's reception at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery Thursday March 21, 6-8pm. "Since the early 1980’s, Bosman has painted tragicomic fictions of modern life tinged with frank melodrama and humor, marking him as a pivotal figure in the Neo-Expressionist movement. High Anxiety presents seminal works from the early 1980’s alongside the artist’s more recent paintings." More info: http://bit.ly/rbosmanNB

Mike Cockrill has made thoughtful art for PLACE YOURSELF-a book of original prayer, kavannot and liturgical poems by Trisha Arlin. Written in clear language that is meant to be understood in real time as part of a service or ritual event, or to share personal spiritual explorations, Arlin’s work is fresh,challenging, useful and very modern.
“Place yourself in front of the fear.
You will be judged, you will die.
Place yourself in the center of the universe
You earned that spot simply by existing.
Place yourself under obligation to God
However you understand or don’t understand God.
Place yourself on the path of holiness and joy and truth.
Bless and be blessed by HaMakom, the Place where we find ourselves.”

“Since I was operating on a shoestring, I would host a private dinner after the opening that I prepared myself earlier in the day,” says Jen Dragon, whose gallery, Cross Contemporary, just closed its doors in upstate New York. “After a couple of years, I moved the dinners to an Italian Restaurant (Bella Luna of Saugerties) across the street that could easily seat a large group of us together... But apart from the opening festivities, I would make a point of personally inviting an art writer to visit the show, and then I would treat them to lunch. This worked well as it gave me an opportunity to get to know the critic and find out more about them. Lastly, many art critics are also poets and/or published authors, so it made sense to host a reading of their work at the gallery. This helped expand the mission of the art gallery into a more cultural space.” #artcollector #contemporaryart #artcritic
