Teasers: Lamar Peterson @ Fredericks & Freiser

Opening tonight at Chelsea’s Fredericks & Freiser Gallery is the latest solo exhibition by talented painter Lamar Peterson. Peterson, who has shown with Deitch Projects and LA’s Richard Heller Gallery, works in bright hyper-real colors to create surrealistic and cartoonish portrayals of characters—often African American families—which are at once humorous and unsettling. In recent bodies of work, he has expanded his range beyond painting to include collage and mixed media pieces, so we’re very excited to see what he has in store for this show.

Releases: “MAYDAY: The Art of Shepard Fairey” Book

Following in a long line of elegantly produced Shepard Fairey exhibition catalogs, a new publication has just been unveiled to honor his historic creative outpouring that kicked off this past summer’s art season. While landmark in it’s own right as a result of the scope and scale of the effort, the instantly iconic show also served as an emphatic going out party for Deitch Projects, the game-changing gallery in a large part responsible for taking street art out of the shadows and into the limelight.

Openings: “Not Quite Open for Business” @ The Hole

Earlier last week we gave you a sneak preview of the gallery space that is likely to contend as the heir apparent to the famed Deitch Projects. On Saturday night “The Hole” officially opened its doors for it’s anticipated inaugural show “Not Quite Open for Business”. As the titled indicated the launch had a flair all it’s own with many fresh but “not quite finished” creations that matched the crispy new space. Launching in the heart of Soho between Prince and Spring, it seemed as though many of […]

Preview / Setup: “Not Quite Open for Business” @ The Hole

A few weeks ago, we updated you on the creation of “The Hole” gallery by two former directors of Deitch Projects (Kathy Grayson & Meghan Coleman) and that they were planning some sort of group exhibition with at least nine artists. A pretty ambitious plan for a gallery put together in the past two months to fill “the hole” left by Jeffrey Deitch right? Well, great projects tend to snowball and now this show now has over 20 key artists and the opening is in less […]

Filling the Hole Left by Jeffrey Deitch – The Hole

Ever since Jeffrey Deitch made the announcement that he was leaving New York City and the commercial art world behind to become Director of MOCA on the other side of the country, speculation and rumors have abounded concerning the legacy he’s leaving behind and the aftermath of his gallery, Deitch Projects. How was the void that was going to be created by his departure be replaced? Today, the answer was announced. According to an article by the Wall Street Journal, that hole is going to […]

R.I.P. Deitch Projects

Yesterday, May 29, 2010, marked the final day of Shepard Fairey’s May Day exhibition and the final day of existence for Deitch Projects. Although the cutting-edge New York gallery will be surely be missed, we are very excited for the future of its founder, gallery staff, and roster of artists.  We are looking forward to what Jeffrey Deitch has in store as he leads MOCA Los Angeles to its next stage. Equaling as exciting is how the torch will be passed on to his ambitious […]

In part one of our Shepard Fairey “May Day” opening coverage, we gave you an insider’s view on the opening festivities from Jeffery Deitch’s farewell show in New York.
