Artist Will Ryman built a Log Cabin, painted it metallic Gold inside and out, bedazzled its interior walls with collages of gold painted car parts, railroad parts, cotton, computer parts, corn, coal, bullets, arrowheads, chains and shackles, and named the finished piece America. Today, March 30th, is the final day that you can see America on exhibit at the Paul Kasmin Gallery. Here are some photos of or what you are going to miss if you can’t make it over there by 6:00 PM.

Franco Recchia’s Recycled Computer Part Sculpture Comes to NYC’s Agora Gallery


Manhattan

If you’ve ever wondered what the parts inside of a computer box might look like if reworked into a tiny sculpture of the NYC Skyline, now’s your chance to find out. You’ve probably seen his work on the Internet, but now Franco Recchia’s “circuit board cityscapes” – all composed entirely of cast-off electronic parts – can be seen up close in the exhibition The Odyssey Within: An Exhibition of Fine Art by Greek and Italian Artists which opens at NYC’s Agora Gallery this Thursday, December 16, 2010. The Agora Gallery Blog also has a fascinating interview with Recchia (including more pictures of his art) up now at This Link. I recommend you check it out for added insight on the artist’s methods and philosophy prior to viewing the exhibit.

The Odyssey Within Runs from December 16 to January 7, 2011 at the Agora Gallery, 530 West 25th St, New York City. Gallery Hours: Tues – Sat, 11 AM – 6 PM.
