As previously mentioned, Luna Park and I are pleased to be taking part in the show Stokenphobia opening this Friday at Pandemic Gallery in Brooklyn. When I stopped by to drop my piece off, I was blown away by the quality of the work that is being featured in this show. Not only are the drawings by Gore B as stellar as one would expect, but many of my favorite artists have turned out some of the best work that I have seen from them in a while. Even better are the prices – whether you are a collector or just an admirer who would like to own a piece from your favorite artist (but had never been able to afford it), shows like this are an excellent opportunity to pick up a smaller work without breaking the bank. I already have dibs on the Deuce Seven boat, but there is plenty more available to choose from…or just come out and enjoy what is bound to be yet another memorable night at the always fun Pandemic Gallery!
Opens Friday, March 12th, 7-11pm Pandemic Gallery 37 Broadway (btw. Kent & Wythe) Brooklyn, NY 11211
Pufferella’s week long show, i know you are but what am i, opened at Factory Fresh this past Friday. If you didn’t get a chance to check out the show then, stop by the gallery this Friday the 19th, when seven Bushwick art spaces will keep their doors open until 10pm as part of BACK THE BEAT: Bushwick Art Spaces Stay Open Late. BACK THE BEAT is the third installment of a series of ‘beat nites’ in the Bushwick neighborhood featuring new art in unique art spaces. This installment is sponsored by Culture Pundits and celebrates all that is good and great about the Bushwick art scene which continues to thrive far from the hype and hustle. Featured spaces include: Factory Fresh, English Kills, Famous Accountants, Sugar, Centotto, Norte Maar, and Storefront.
For a limited engagement of one week only, Brooklyn’s most smokin’ gallerista will transform the front room of Factory Fresh into a magical land sure to please both the naughty and the nice! With all new fabric creations on display, Pufferella’s latest show comes complete with rides and amusement provided by her friends Skewville & Plastik Mag.
“i know u are but what am i” opens Friday, February 12th, from 7-10pm. But if you just can’t wait til then to get your Pufferella fix, check out her website and follow her on Twitter. Or just in case you need a little reminder of how damn adorable she is, check out Rebekah Potter’s recent interview with the sexy sculptress here.
Pufferella has been making Fabric creations since 2002 and has been involved with the Skewville missions even longer. Her work deals mainly with sexual relations and the afterthoughts. She is the woman behind the creation of Orchard Street Art Gallery in NYC and Factory Fresh Art Gallery in Brooklyn. Her work has been shown in both solo and group exhibitions throughout NYC, California, Dublin and London.
There is little denying that Skewville had elevated ball busting, quite literally, to art form. Shepard Fairey was just the latest artist to fall prey to one of their “forced collaborations”. So, in the words of Skewville, I say “nice try” and I hope to see more!
