The beautiful weather and the promise of great art seemingly brought out all the five boroughs Thursday night for the opening of the Barnstormers show at Joshua Liner Gallery. The exhibition – which was so large that it overflowed Liner’s third floor space into an entire other gallery on the floor below – leaned toward presenting individual works from the diverse group of artists, instead of toward collaborative installations as expected. Of course, pieces by stars of the original scene such as David Ellis, Swoon, […]

Christina Ray Gallery (formerly Glowlab) and Fountain Art Fair are behind an unique group exhibition to benefit Transformazium, an emerging collaborative arts center in Braddock, Pennsylvania. The show, called “Idea for the Here and Now,” will feature prints by David Ellis, Steve Powers, Jose Parla, Swoon and others based on the idea of “the transformation of resources into tangible social and economic benefits for small communities and the world at large.” The limited edition screenprints were all hand-pulled at the Braddock Screen Printing Shop, and […]
Just recently, the Joshua Liner Gallery gave notice that they were revising their schedule to include an exciting surprise show opening March 18 by the NYC/Tokyo-based artist collective The Barnstormers. According to insider information leaked to AM from a reliable source, the collaborative group (which includes nearly everyone whose anyone in the street art and associated scene) will be creating individual pieces and site-specific installations that will likely span beyond the walls of Liner’s spacious Chelsea gallery into another gallery space in the building. This […]

That painting you see above is a 36″x48″ by José Parlá and it was prominently featured at the Otero Plassart booth. After discussing the piece with the gallery representative, we learned that the gallery owners are friends with Mr. Parlá and luckily for Southern California denizens, there is a good chance his artwork could now […]

When we heard about an exhibition that was to be curated by Elms Lester at the prestigious Atkinson Gallery in Somerset, it definitely stoked our interest.
