I wanted to give you a bit of a heads up on some very cool NYC photo and art events coming up this week that are a must go to! One event features my own work.
1. Tuesday March 3, 2009 6- 8 p.m. Krappy Kamera Competition Soho Photo Gallery 15 White Street NY 10013 Phone #212-226-8571
My dear friend Gabriel Biderman has one image in the Krappy Kamera Competition. I can’t wait to see all the analogue images that are hanging in this gallery. For those of you not familiar with Soho Photo Gallery, you should check it out. As a photographer you can become a member and have shows on a regular basis for a fee. If becoming a member does not interest you, there are still plenty of opportunities to show at this gallery as they are always having photo competitions.
2. Friday March 6, 2009 6-9p.m. World Of Imagination Vol.2 APW Gallery 48-18 Van Dam St. Long Island City, NY 11101
Here you will see over 500 artists including five new paintings I created. They are super fun and all 12×12. I know this is not particularly photography, but I guarantee this will be a fun art networking event. There will be artists, art collectors and gallery representatives to chat with. Come mingle with others and myself. I would love to see everyone there.
3. March 5- 8, 2009 Thursday- Saturday noon- 8 p.m. Sunday Noon – 7 p.m. The Armory Show Piers 92 & 94 12th Ave at 55th St New York.
This is a must go to event if you are an emerging artist and photographer!!! A great show to see all the contemporary work being displayed all over the world. My strategy each year is to see what is hot and what is not along with investigating what galleries may be interested in my work. You never know who you may meet. Be prepared to see a lot of images. Some you will be very drawn to, other pieces you may think how did that get on the wall.
I hope to see everyone there. Enlightenment is on the way this week!
