SPARKBOOM art opening / Aug. 9, 2014

The SPARKBOOM opening at ARTSPACE in Patchogue was a huge success! Kudos to Michelle Carollo for organizing and curating the show. The artwork was edgy, youthful, quirky, humorous and unique. Such a breath of fresh air! You have to get yourself over to the exhibition if you missed last night. One of my favorite pieces, Dong Hee Lee's sculpture "Fecundity", is made entirely of white hot glue. I love artists who take ordinary materials and elevate them. Another artist who did this was Jeff...

HAC Personal Best Opening / Aug. 8, 2014

Posted on August 10, 2014 at 9:40 AM Comments comments (1)

The Huntington Arts Council's Personal Best exhibition was worth partcipating in. It was fun to hang out with friends Allyson Uttendorfer and William Grabowski. One of my favorite pieces is Valeri Zeman's "Chelsea" for taking fabric and giving it the look of graffiti. For obvious reasons I also enjoyed Nicholas Strigia's "Friends".

Oh yeah forgot

It's just like me to forget to post my little announcement that was in The New York Times.  I didn't even know until a student of mine spotted it and clipped it for me.  Love that kid! I know it's not a big deal but how many people can say they were in the New York Times!

Louise Fili is awesome

I had the wonderful opportunity to spend some time with Louise Fili recently.  She is nice as all get out, funny and do I have to mention what a super deluxe model typographer she is.  Only bummer was I forgot to bring one of the 5 books I have by her and her husband and her new one to have her sign it. She signed a little piece of paper for me instead and I have it proudly hanging in my studio.  Thank you Louise for being awesome! Another wonderful thing that happened tha...

Chasing Banksy

If I kept a daily journal the entry for October 19, 2013 would simply say THANK YOU Banksy. I set out on that day to chase Bansky, not as seriously as some who are watching twitter like chain smokers (I don’t have twitter nor know how to tweet I might mention) or pedaling furiously on bike to be the first to get a coveted “clean shot” of his work. I was also brilliantly unaware as I stepped onto Chambers street that his target had been Staten Island. My fir...

Barry McGee exhibit in Boston

Posted on September 15, 2013 at 3:15 PM Comments comments (1)

There was so much great artwork I got to see this summer. One of the highlights was Barry McGee’s exhibition at ICA in Boston. I have always been a big fan of graffiti art and it was exciting to see a whole bunch of his work in one place and despite some people’s opinion I don’t think he has lost any street cred whatsoever by going ”indoors”. The work was diverse while Barry’s true authentic style beat heartily throughout the entire collection. Myself b...
