Yay! Celebrating Our 2nd Anniversary of Thangka Classes

This month we celebrate two years of a successful program in Buddhist and Tibetan art, lead by Sonam Rinzin. There will be an exhibition (TBA), and we have produced a beautiful ten-page catalog. For this catalog we are asking for a $12 donation, to help with printing and other costs of running our day-long Saturday classes. You can order the catalog at our store, and shipping is free worldwide. And we'll send you a pdf as well by email, as soon as you order. Your support of this program is greatly appreciated. Namaste.

Check out the Thangka Exhibition Homepage.

Brainard Carey of Yale Radio talks with Immersive pioneer Ebon Fisher about Immersionist culture, memes, and media organisms, starting with Fisher's early work at the MIT Media Lab, and leading up to his role in Immersionism in Williamsburg in the 90s, and beyond. The discussion is about Fisher's work, but it loops around all kinds of interesting developments in Brooklyn back in the day.

Boundless Space, Vanishing Space: A New Painting by Rafael Gomez Luna

Rafael Gomez Luna, Eagle Eye, 2016

The Children's School in Park Slope is one of the best grade schools in the city. It feels like a private school when you walk in. But this is PS 372, which just had its annual fundraising gala and art auction. "My daughter is in a class of twenty-five, and they have six teachers, for 25 children," Rafael Gomez Luna tells me. "We are really lucky to have her in this school, and I am grateful, really grateful. That's why I do so much for the school."

Our Spring Salon Is Here

Rafael Gomez Luna, pasture, 2015, detail

The Spring Salon is our group show of all the artists in the gallery, as well as work from our Saturday classes. It is our big chill-out, or thaw, as the case may be, before the autumn season. It is our time to take the measure of the art we've got, and plan for the coming year. Exhibits will rotate to some extent, and there will be several events (to be announced) around the Salon between now and the summer. Do come by, we are open every weekend. This is a great chance to see a lot of wonderful work in a casual and discursive environment.

See the exhibition page for more details.
